Chemistry Film Studio

Chemistry demonstrations have an important role to play in teaching. They provide a visual attraction to the fun of chemistry and are a teaching aid for use with students.

The Chemistry Film Studio is a project to place the experiments you want to see on the internet.

These experiments are mainly targeted at schools, but other experiments that will be of interest to all chemists will also be included.

You will require Apple QuickTime 4 to view the films of the reactions:
