I find that chemistry is often taught poorly or without a purpose. Because of this, people tend to lose interest and sometimes even start to hate it. In each video that I make, I try to balance theory with purpose. My goal is to show the natural beauty of chemistry in fun and interesting ways.

In terms of education, I have a BSc in Biochemistry, with a minor in pharmacology. However, I've always been a lot more drawn to applied chemistry. So after finishing my degree, I worked as a lab tech in an organic lab and then as a chemistry grad student. However, I ended up leaving my graduate studies early to focus on this channel. Now, making chemistry videos has become my full-time job.

    Is nobody gonna talk about his editing improving? The animation was much more polished and overall video was much better

    Can you make a tiny universe lol

  23. Gorshkov Carl Vinson

    can you please explain how and when to use titration , precipitation and crystalisation please

    SOOOO, with your bar of gold, how do you turn it into a gold ring??

    Chillin on a weekend like usual making chemicals that kill you

  38. Ritin Kornas

    Interesting video! So... @NileRed, I don't know if you have ever had your own blood in your mouth, like when you nose bleed for example. The blood as a very distinctive metallic flavour, and since most flavour is actually coming from the nose, is the "taste of blood" actually coming from the 1-octen-3-one too???

    It’s funny how I hate science but Nile is so interesting and it’s teaching me way more than what I learn in school.

  60. mason houtzer

    Not sure about specifics but why not use a photo resin like in resin 3d printers and get a slow absorbtion and then low UV lights for slow curing. No idea what heat or if any gasses given off or even if it would work at all.

    Could You use Pine resin or Wax instead of plastic as Filler? Not that it would be clear but just curious if it could fill the same role

    I know nothing about chemistry, and probably will never pursue it, but that doesn't stop this from being so cool.

    I know it's already a reality, but what about Transparent Aluminum? This made me think of Star Trek IV, haha!

  76. dukeofthedance

    thats beautiful it tastes the same as cheap wino best choice brand vodka. delicious, mmm so thats why there was a toilet paper shortage during our year of the covid9 2020. amazing

    Lets all comment tons of silly stuff, to keep these F.B.I. agents busy!🤣

  78. Kurt Schlarb

    Yeah, I use clear wood every I open the cellophane wrapper on a pack of smokes. Cellophane is made from celluose, which in turn is derived from plants and trees. I wonder if cellophane sheets could be bonded together to form a sheet of "glass." I also wonder why anyone would want to replace glass with wood. I mean glass is mainly sand isn't it? I know where there is a LOT of sand.

    10:24 man i wanna eat that
