Chemistry Diamonds on YouTube


This list may be added to the Wiki. Stay tuned.


I had an idea to gather and sort as many high quality and even obscure chemistry YouTube videos as I could, so I shall be attempting it here. I believe that this could shed some light on the lesser known compounds/reactions as well; I myself find a few great videos here and there while searching obscure reactions, yet they are often ones neglected by most amateur chemists.


General Chemistry:

[Acid Anhydrides] [Mn2O7]

Of course content creators can request for me to take down/put up their videos as they please. The list shall be further updated(as of right now, I am no where near done with it; I'm taking a break). If you have any suggestions(preferably videos that involve obscure reactions, synthesises, compounds, ect.) please post them and I'll add them to the list. A Radiochemistry section will be added soon.

Very good idea velzee, but the way you named the topic is weird , i thought that the post is all about real diamonds with their chemical property as a video on youtube ...ok anyway

Lab tips: Making sodium wire for drying solvents.

I couldn't get the link to post so this is simply the name of the video on you tube.

There is another good one by UC235 i think. He makes a lead/ sodium alloy especially made for drying solvents. He says that this is a much safer way to do this rather than using sodium by itself and would be good for those who don't have a lot of sodium to spare. Although he seems to draw out the video it is still pretty interesting.




Where there is a will
there is a way.

I came across a channel recently -- new to me.
A lot of chemistry demonstration standards - nylon. elephant toothpaste etc, but quite well done.
A reasonable number of subscribers but traffic is slow and it has been around for a long time. I am a bit surprised that it hasn't received a mention here (that I know of).

Anyway,

I've created a Wiki page which contains the updated list: http://www.sciencemadness.org/smwiki/index.php/Chemistry_Dia...

Suggestions are welcome!

I came across this channel
https://www.youtube.com/user/TheChemlife/videos

I have not watched many yet but it seems to be rather good -- with an emphasis on nanoparticles and electrical applications.

Wow thanks for adding my stuff to the wiki. I feel most of my stuff is crude and basic now, but soon I hope to get my hands on some more fun reagents.

Another channel I found that seems to be worth a watch:
https://www.youtube.com/user/mabakken/videos?sort=da&view=0&...

Again, I have not viewed a lot yet but they seem to be ok the ones I have watched. A lot of classic reactions but a good (if old) collection.

If you've never seen bulk magnesium burning, it's worth checking out; the metal undergoes a weird cauliflower-growth stage when it's not flaring. Sparks on the surface of the growth makes the whole thing look like a churning thundercloud. This captures it nicely (action starts ~ minute 2-3)

I have started looking at this channel:
https://www.youtube.com/user/Hegelrast/videos

I have been rather impressed with the content. There are a lot of ideas worth repeating here. The cracking of hydrocarbons was well done. I might have to repeat that with my students. :)

Ok. Not specifically chemistry. But awesome!
Actually I feel like I am late to the party for this one. It seems like the sort of thing I should have known about ages back.

A Capella Science. At least two YT channels and appearances on some others as well
https://www.youtube.com/user/acapellascience/videos
https://www.youtube.com/user/acapellascience2/videos

My favourites viewed so far:
Entropic Time. Supremely clever stuff.
Whole new worlds. A history of the discovery of exoplanets set to the soundtrack of Aladdin. Music is just awesome and there is some great humour.
Bohemian Gravity. String theory to the music of Queen. Admittedly some of the content of that one went over my head. But hey, it is string theory.

Anyway, enjoy!
