Chemical Reaction Videos, Explained
Each minute, a whopping 100 hours worth of videos are uploaded to YouTube—and a small, yet endlessly fascinating number of those are chemical reaction videos. To explain what exactly is happening in some of these videos we reached out to an expert at the American Chemical Society, John M. Malin, Ph.D, to let us in on some of these awesome chemistry secrets.
The Path to the Periodic Table
The path to the periodic table began early in the 19th century, when John Dalton united the atomic theory of matter, which had existed in various forms since antiquity, with the concept of the chemical element, which had emerged in the late 18th century with the work of Antoine-Laurent Lavoisier and his followers.
Lavoisier, a meticulous experimenter, revolutionized chemistry by establishing the law of conservation of mass, determining that combustion and respiration are caused by chemical reactions with what he named "oxygen," and helping systematize chemical nomenclature, among many other accomplishments.
Julius Meyer and Dmitri Mendeleev
For both Julius Meyer and Dmitri Mendeleev, writing a textbook proved to be the impetus for developing the periodic table—a device to present the more than 60 elements known at the time in an intelligible fashion.
