Episode 56 – More Chemistry Videos from the PTOV


To kick off the International Year of Chemistry, we talk with Dr. Martyn Poliakoff and Dr. Samantha Tang from The Periodic Table of Videos.  Having completed all videos for all 118 elements, the team is working on updating every element video, while adding other videos such as molecular videos and chemical definition videos.  Drs. Poliakoff and Tang talk to us about upcoming events in the International Year of Chemistry and their work with Periodic Table of Videos

    Great! Thank you for letting us know about their new videos. My students have found the Periodic Table of Videos enjoyable. I’m rather glad the non-YouTube version is available, as our state’s public school system blocks YouTube.
