Our collection from Rhys Lewis brings chemistry into focus, showcasing the bangs, pops, flames and colours of some classic experiments. All of these demonstrations reveal an important aspect of the chemistry of their ingredients, and have been designed and shot with educators in mind.
Caesium in water, nitrogen triiodide, exploding bubbles and molten iron… here are some of chemistry’s most thrilling reactions, slowed right down for your appreciation. Filmed with the help of the experts at the Royal Institution in London, these stunning shots were produced used a 2000 frame-per-second full HD Photron BC2 camera.
These mathematical animations show how complicated and beautiful patterns can arise from relatively simple equations. Using modern modelling techniques, Christian Koch's work shows how the behaviour of many individual particles and their connections can lead to large-scale effects that are visible in the world around us, from magnetic fields to earthquakes to vast star clusters.
