In The Dawn of Modern Chemistry, we briefly examine what the ancient Greeks thought about what everything was made of and then explain the basics of atoms. We take a look at the discovery of carbon dioxide and oxygen in the mid-1700s and explore some of the properties of these gases, including oxygen's vital role...

In this program we discuss how the discovery of oxygen helped to accelerate the study of chemistry. We examine how hydrogen was discovered and how it was discovered that water is formed when hydrogen and oxygen chemically join together. We then look at oxygen's role in producing metal oxides from metals and its ro...

In The Discovery of Atoms, we demonstrate (using copper) how elements can join together to form compounds and how compounds can be broken back down into the individual elements that make them up. We take a look at the first (fairly) accurate list of elements ever published and explore the Law of Conservation of Ma...

We begin this program, The Periodic Table, by comparing and contrasting metals with non-metals. We then describe how Dmitri Mendeleev, the scientist who devised the first Periodic Table, organised the elements not just into metals and non-metals but also into groups based on patterns in the way that they chemicall...
