Who says the periodic table is boring? With a new series featured on YouTube, the elements come to life. Some of the experiments that are featured are too dangerous for the classroom.
The videos are a project from Nottingham designed to make the elements come alive. The completed project will feature each one of the 118 elements.
Professor Martyn Poliakoff is one of the scientists that is taking part in the project. Filming only started weeks a few weeks ago. The first of the videos on YouTube have garnered more than 100,000 hits. The videos should be completed by the end of the month.
