Video: Beautiful Reactions


This video is from a website appropriately named Beautiful Chemistry.

Professor Yan Liang of the University of Science and Technology of China, along with co-creators Xiangang Tao and Wei Huang, focus a hi-definition microscopic camera on a variety of chemical reactions. The imagery is nothing less than stunning.

The music, Positive Reactions, was composed by Lani Elisabeth.


Crystallization of copper sulfate.



The reaction between eggshell and hydrochloric acid generated bubbles of carbon dioxide.



The reaction between zinc metal and a copper sulfate solution generated copper metal, which fell off the surface due to gravitational force.
