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 chemistry.
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. Chemistry is happening all around us all the time, and there are a lot of really awesome chemicals and reactions out there!
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.

I know, at least with candy making, to make that artificial flavor not seem so artificial for fruit candies, they use citric acid. I'm not sure how this would affect the scent though.

It would be a lot easier just to mess with your own body’s chemistry to get the same effect. Have some heroin or xanax with your redbull and you won’t find it hard to sleep at all.

I only know the canna-bizz reaction. Crashing thca and cbd. It’s Trippy though how thca will crystallize but thc won’t And cbda won’t crystallize like cbd does. One requires the acid molecule intact while the other requires it to be released from the carbon chain in decarboxylation.

This is almost like, a philosophical message. All that hard work and effort to literally taste what the elite can afford, but in the end the only thing that tasted good was the symbolism behind the diamonds, the actual carbonated water was just as ordinary as tap water. Chef’s kiss.

Can you mix it up a little and give us some organic synthesis videos instead of every vid being miscellaneous or materials chem? I suppose you get more views but I personally really enjoyed when your vids had more chemistry to dissect, not to say your vids are easy, but conceptually they are not very complex nowadays
