- Hitler Tries To Learn Organic Chemistry. A funny chemical take on an old meme.
- An other awesome video from the Periodic Table of Videos guys, this time for chlorine. I’ve always enjoyed their informative and entertaining videos. However, I will have to lightheartedly take Pete Licence to task. Pete says at ~1:15, “Chlorine wants an other electron to get that noble gas configuration and it will move heaven and Earth to get that electron.” But, chlorine gas already has a filled octet and that is the chemical used in the experiment. It probably isn’t the best idea to infer a discussion from the electron affinity for a single chlorine atom in the gas-phase and use it as a simplification, with a smile and a wink, when explaining the reactivity of chlorine gas.
- Paulina Mason thought you guys might like her attempt at singing the Periodic Table.
I study at Carleton University in Canada. The video shows a very cool way how our chemistry professor encouraged memorizing all 117 elements of the periodic table. We had to make up a melody, and sing them in front of 500 people class, for an extra mark. That was hilarious:)
