Reactions
Reactions is a show that uncovers the chemistry all around us. We answer the burning questions you’ve always wanted to ask: -How can I get my smartphone battery to last longer? -What if humans could photosynthesize? -How can I get my teeth to look whiter? -Why is pizza so delicious? -Is it OK to pee in the pool? (Spoiler: No. No it’s not. Stop it.) Reactions are happening everywhere. But the best ones are right here on YouTube. Subscribe!

But Could CBD Make You Fail a Drug Test? But Could CBD Make You Fail a Drug Test?
3 months ago En
Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a non psychoactive compound produced by the marijuana plant that seems to be everywhere these days. Maybe you’ve even been asked if you’d like it added to your morning cup of joe! THC, also marijuana-derived, is what gets people high and is screened for by drug tests. The chemical structure of THC is very similar to CBD’s, which begs the question: Could using CBD make you fail a drug test? In this episode of Reactions we break down the chemistry behind the possibilities. #CBD #DrugTest #Reactions Subscribe! http://bit.ly/ACSReactions Facebook! http://facebook.com/ACSReactions Twitter! http://twitter.com/ACSReactions Instagram! https://www.instagram.com/acsreactions/ You might also like: How Do Pregnancy Tests Work? https://youtu.be/jc2_iBZ9r_k How Does Marijuana Work? https://youtu.be/4ukdUDCE56c Are E-cigs Safer Than Cigarettes? https://youtu.be/hcsvX7v-iCQ Why Are Synthetic Drugs So Dangerous? https://youtu.be/83gIiBD365E The Science of Caffeine: The World's Most Popular Drug https://youtu.be/YuJOhpNS0IY Credits: Producer: Melissa Salpietra Writer: George Zaidan Scientific Consultants: Mark Lefsrud, PhD Mahmoud A.

How to Get Rid of Skunk Smell How to Get Rid of Skunk Smell
4 months ago En
Skunks are nocturnal animals that prefer to keep to themselves. However, when they sense danger, this lurking purveyor of biochemical warfare unleashes its primary defense mechanism: a nasty-smelling spray. Similar to tear gas, the scent is so strong it can cause your eyes to start dripping and make you throw up. This week on Reactions, get ready for some stinking chemistry as we take a closer look at the compounds that give skunk spray its horrendous odor. 0:28 - What is skunk spray 1:00 - Skunks tell you when they're going to spray 1:15 - How far can skunks spray 1:29 - Why is skunk spray so strong 2:25 - What to do if you or your dog gets sprayed by a skunk Subscribe! http://bit.ly/ACSReactions Facebook! http://facebook.com/ACSReactions Twitter! http://twitter.com/ACSReactions Instagram! https://www.instagram.com/acsreactions/ You might also like: Why Do Wet Dogs Stink? + Other Canine Chemistry https://youtu.be/X9AozZLZnCU Why Are Birds Different Colors? https://youtu.be/L_H1NC5sN50 Why Don’t Antarctic Fish Freeze to Death? https://youtu.be/k4gKYyXgX5g How Do Pheromones Work? https://youtu.be/_aoWR1ZDUQc Chameleons Are Masters of Nanotechnology https://youtu.be/OfxApSZ5bCM Why Is Snake Venom So Deadly? https://youtu.be/ZCWPnmQj6LE Credits: Producer: Kirk Zameiroski Writer: Kirk Zameiroski & Emma Hiolski Scientific Consultants: Michelle Boucher, PhD Brianne Raccor, PhD William Wood, PhD Ted Stankowich, PhD Executive Producer: George Zaidan Music: Sam Leopard - To The Point "wah-not" from audio micro Sources: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/226187051_The_History_of_Skunk_Defensive_Secretion_Research https://www.researchgate.net/publication/11018910_Volatile_Components_in_Defensive_Spray_of_the_Hooded_Skunk_Mephitis_macroura https://www.researchgate.net/publication/258829412_New_components_in_defensive_secretion_of_the_striped_skunkMephitis_mephitis https://www.researchgate.net/publication/258823487_Volatile_components_in_defensive_spray_of_the_spotted_skunkSpilogale_putorius https://open.alberta.ca/dataset/7b9179c0-34e1-4b34-8309-145a71f238fe/resource/c20c0e5e-299b-4b87-810d-363d3be92642/download/2016-agri-facts-biology-and-control-of-skunks-agdex-684-5-revised-december-2016.pdf https://www.researchgate.net/profile/William_Wood6/publication/264121808_Why_Skunks_Smell_So_Bad/links/53f6b25e0cf2fceacc74d1e3/Why-Skunks-Smell-So-Bad.pdf Ever wonder why dogs sniff each others' butts?

To honor women’s history month in the international year of the periodic table, today we wanted to share the story of two of chemistry’s most brilliant and bold women and their paths of elemental discovery -- because what they brought to the table changed the world as we know it. ++Note: There is a voice over error. The voice over states that by 1879 Marie Curie had concluded that Uranium and Thorium were the only known radioactive elements. This date should actually be 1897. Apologies for this error.

Did you realize that just like certain animals here on Earth, there are endangered elements too? For example, we’re constantly losing helium, a gas that defies gravity and escapes our atmosphere into space. This incredible element is in high demand all over the globe. It’s also way too expensive to create in the laboratory and that’s bad news for more than just your birthday party! This week on Reactions, we will explore innovations of the industrial era of helium, how much we have left and see whether or not this element will go extinct.
