Chemical Curiosities: Surprising Science and Dramatic Demonstrations, is a brilliant and engaging lecture by Professor Christopher Bishop.
He talks about chemical reactions, about how they progress, and whether a chemical reaction can go backwards, among other things. He does this in very dramatic ways, showcasing some brilliant experiments. These include colour changes, state changes (liquid –> solid, for example), big bangs, dry ice, white phosphorous, combustions, fire extinguishers, superconductors, and everyone’s favourite, liquid nitrogen.
The Ri Channel does a great job of providing extra information about certain parts of the talk (in the footnotes), so if you want to find out more, it’s very easy to do so. I highly recommend everyone watch this lecture! Onwards!
