The Energy in Chemical Bonds

The Energy in Chemical Bonds

Suppose I take some hydrogen gas and mix it with oxygen gas. What happens? Nothing. Nothing happens unless you add a bit of energy—from a spark, perhaps. Add energy and BOOM: You get an explosion, and the hydrogen and oxygen (some of it) make water. Clearly this reaction releases energy, but where did the energy come from?

Chemical Reaction Videos, Explained

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

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.

Antoine-Laurent Lavoisier

Antoine-Laurent Lavoisier

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.
