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!

Coronavirus Vaccine: Where Are We and What's Next? Coronavirus Vaccine: Where Are We and What's Next?
5 days ago En
You might have heard that vaccine trials are currently underway in Seattle. What exactly is being tested? How much longer will these tests take? And when can we expect a vaccine against the novel coronavirus? We chat with Dr. Benjamin Neuman, one of the world’s experts on coronavirus, and Daniel Wrapp, one of the scientists who mapped the structure of the protein coronavirus uses to infect your cells, to help us answer these questions. #stayhome #coronavirus #covid-19 #covid19 Find us on all these places: Subscribe! http://bit.ly/ACSReactions Facebook! http://facebook.com/ACSReactions Twitter! http://twitter.com/ACSReactions Instagram! https://www.instagram.com/acsreactions/ Executive Producers: George Zaidan Hilary Hudson Producers: Andrew Sobey Elaine Seward Writer/Host: Samantha Jones, PhD Scientific consultants: Benjamin Neuman, PhD Daniel Wrapp Michelle Boucher, PhD Leila Duman, PhD Special Thanks: Ruben Rodriguez SOURCES: Cryo-EM structure of the 2019-nCoV spike in the prefusion conformation https://science.sciencemag.org/content/367/6483/1260/tab-figures-data A Fusion Peptide in the Spike Protein of MERS Coronavirus https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6784214/ SARS-CoV-2 Cell Entry Depends on ACE2 and TMPRSS2 and Is Blocked by a Clinically Proven Protease Inhibitor https://www.cell.com/cell/pdf/S0092-8674(20)30229-4.pdf NIH Scientists Identify Atomic Structure of Novel Coronavirus Protein https://www.niaid.nih.gov/news-events/atomic-structure-novel-coronavirus-protein Structure, Function, and Antigenicity of the SARS-CoV-2 Spike Glycoprotein https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0092867420302622 Expression, glycosylation, and modification of the spike (S) glycoprotein of SARS CoV. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17502675 Characterization of the receptor-binding domain (RBD) of 2019 novel coronavirus: implication for development of RBD protein as a viral attachment inhibitor and vaccine https://www.nature.com/articles/s41423-020-0400-4 How SARS hijacks host cells https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2013/08/130822122808.htm Mechanisms of viral assembly https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4382372/ Timely development of vaccines against SARS-CoV-2 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/32148172 Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus Nonstructural Proteins 3, 4, and 6 Induce Double-Membrane Vesicles https://mbio.asm.org/content/4/4/e00524-13 Scientists figure out how new coronavirus breaks into human cells https://www.livescience.com/how-coronavirus-infects-cells.html A Spotlight on Viruses—Application of Click Chemistry to Visualize Virus-Cell Interactions https://www.mdpi.com/1420-3049/24/3/481/htm How Viruses Invade Cells https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4788752/ The proximal origin of SARS-CoV-2 https://www.nature.com/articles/s41591-020-0820-9 Thousands of scientists are racing to find a vaccine for coronavirus. 41 possibilities are in the works https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2020/03/19/more-than-41-potential-coronavirus-vaccines-works/2870009001/ Aerosol and Surface Stability of SARS-CoV-2 as Compared with SARS-CoV-1 https://www.nejm.org/doi/10.1056/NEJMc2004973 New coronavirus stable for hours on surfaces https://www.nih.gov/news-events/news-releases/new-coronavirus-stable-hours-surfaces Persistence of coronaviruses on inanimate surfaces and their inactivation with biocidal agents https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0195670120300463\ Vaccines and Antiviral Drugs in Pandemic Preparedness https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3291404/ On the binding affinity of macromolecular interactions: daring to ask why proteins interact https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3565702/ Coronavirus envelope protein: current knowledge https://virologyj.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/s12985-019-1182-0 First known person-to-person transmission of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) in the USA https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(20)30607-3/fulltext The SARS, MERS and novel coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemics, the newest and biggest global health threats: what lessons have we learned? https://academic.oup.com/ije/advance-article/doi/10.1093/ije/dyaa033/5748175

Can You Cryogenically Freeze Your Body and Come Back to Life? Can You Cryogenically Freeze Your Body and Come Back to Life?
4 months ago En
When you die, there are a lot of things you can do with your dead body--embalm it, cremate it, donate it to science (the list goes on…), but some people will choose to have their dead bodies, or body parts, frozen until the technology of the future has (hopefully) advanced enough to bring them back to life. This week on Reactions, we break down the chemistry of cryogenic freezing and if it’s realistic to think we could ever reanimate a frozen corpse.

Are Vampires Real? Of Course Not, But . . . Are Vampires Real? Of Course Not, But . . .

Check out Monstrum: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCO6nDCimkF79NZRRb8YiDcA Halloween season wouldn’t be what it is without the undead. This week on Reactions, we unpack the chemistry that may have inspired one of our favorites: the vampire. When you think “vampire” some of today’s most popular vampires might come to mind. Attractive bloodsuckers with pale, sometimes sparkling skin. But in the 18th and 19th centuries, when European vampire lore first really took off, they were a bit more...morose and, instead of that crystal-clear skin, they appeared kind of sickly with a reddish complexion. Vampires were often depicted as men from poor, rural areas, who, after dying--often from diseases like the plague--would emerge from their coffins to wreak havoc on a nearby town, sucking the blood of humans, turning them into vampires as well. So how did this folklore come about? Possibly...disease.

But Could CBD Make You Fail a Drug Test? But Could CBD Make You Fail a Drug Test?
10 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.

Personal safety is something we all should take seriously. Whether it’s walking down a dark street at night or fighting off grizzly bears on the trail, pepper spray is an effective tool to fend off an attacker and get safely away. But have you ever thought about what gives this personal-defense-in-a-can its bite –– is it just weaponized hot sauce? This week on Reactions, we’re taking a look at what’s going on inside these little canisters, and we’ll give you some tips on what to do if you accidentally spray yourself.

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.

So we really messed up on this one. Even we can have a difficult time with R and S Limonene! We appreciate your patience with this video and here it is for the final time. Rest assured everything in here is accurate and correct. We messed up!

So we wanted to clear it up! Here's the lemony-fresh truth about the scent of citrus.
