Top 10 Amazing Chemistry Videos

Here are some really funny and amazing chemistry videos, from Wired Science magazine. As they state, Fiery explosions, beautiful reactions, and hilarious music videos are great reasons to be excited about chemistry. My favourite is the one pictured above, a commercial that’s a music video about polymerase chain reaction (PCR) that parodies those celebrity music videos. The burning Gummy Bear is pretty good, too.
