Upon discovering various pieces of evidence in Sherlock Holmes Chapter One, you’ll be asked to perform chemical tests on them, when what you’ll really be doing is longform math equations as you piece together numbers and operations to satisfy the desired solution the mini-game is searching for. Below is a guide on each Chemical Analysis you’ll encounter after the tutorial on Normal puzzle difficulty.
All Sherlock Holmes Chapter One Chemical Analysis Solutions
Plan Bee, Burnt Papers
You’ll find these papers on a cabinet in the Queen’s warehouse office, sadly they’ve long since been burnt up. Thankfully, with the help of maths disguised as chemistry, Sherlock can clean them up and draw a vital clue from what was written on them.
A Gilded Cage, Vial with Perfume
When exploring Gilden’s home office, you’ll discover his eccentric taste in perfumes via a vial shaped like an elephant’s head. It smells awful but you have no clue what it is. Later in the case, it’ll come time to lure an elephant to an artificial mate. A cheeky chemical analysis later, and you’ll discover the perfume’s scent is elephant pheromones. Perfect for getting the attention of a Goliath during mating season.
A Gilded Cage, Dart Found on the Elephant
After luring Goliath with the perfume mentioned above, Sherlock will find a dart embedded in the gentle giant’s side. Analyze it and you’ll discover it’s full of strychnine. Only two suspects have darts and access to this drug, so you know where to go from here.
A Mother’s Love, An Almost Empty Bottle
In Violet Holmes’ room, you’ll discover a clear bottle of some unknown substance. Chemical Analyze away and you’ll discover it’s a hallucinogen derived from mushrooms.
Love, Death, and Cordona, Silk Scarf
Upon inspection of Mark Ridley’s corpse, you’ll find he’s wearing a rather fashionable Ottoman scarf. Later on in the case, you’ll discover that Ridley has a planned rendezvous with someone at the House of the Eagle, and the now-bloodstained silk scarf is part of the disguise. Nothing some chemical analysis can’t fix.
String Theory, Scrap of Fabric
The hooligan who broke the needlessly locked glass case did so in such a sloppy rush that he left a piece of his sleeve caught in the cracks of the broken glass. Desperate for information on this daring thief, a quick chemical analysis will reveal traces of salt and gunpowder. Not much of a lead, but a lead all the same.
The Muse from Abroad, Mercurio’s Painting Stained With Blood
Poor Mercurio’s death seemed to have been in vain, as it appears the intruder didn’t find what they were after. A painting of the room can be found in the puddle of its author’s blood, and after a quick chemical analysis, you can compare the painting with the room that inspired it to find what the murderer could have possibly wanted to commit this theft gone wrong.
The Muse from Abroad, Wounded Refugee
Required for one of Jon’s Challenges, you’ll find an injured man in danger of infection in the Refugee Camp. After searching your surroundings for ingredients, you’ll use chemical analysis on the “Wounded Refugee” evidence to create a life-saving salve. Not everyone has to die for Sherlock to have a reason to bust out the old chem kit.
Blindsided, Burnt Letters
In Erich von Staub’s room, you’ll find some burned letters on his desk. Same as the burnt papers from all the way back at Plan Bee, a quick chemical analysis will reveal a potential motive for a sister to kill a brother.
Siren Song, Wine Samples
A dead sailor with rigor mortis is found on the beach, but he still has the common decency to leave you a swig of his to-die-for wine. After a chemical analysis reveals the wine contains cyanide, you’ll thank yourself for having a go at sobriety today.
Iron Coffin, Examination of Nicolo Detti’s Body
Upon investigating one of the more harrowing deaths in the game, Sherlock will notice the out of place foaming around the corpse’s mouth. Chemical Analysis reveals the foaming to be the result of intoxication, likely from wine.
