Ozone on Bondi Beach – Periodic Table of Videos

    Could this man be any more awesome?  I think not.  This video was fantastic.  Sharing it with my (smart) friends.

    Leave it to Poliakoff to go sit in the sand at the beach wearing leather shoes, slacks, a shirt & tie, and a vest.

    Beach chemistry is hard to follow…

    4:13 Sorry, you lost me for a minute there. What were we talking about again?

  5. deisisase on 24/06/2014 at 4:46 am

    Why can’t we take the ground level ozone and launch it into the upper atmosphere?

  6. Generationplay on 26/06/2014 at 6:14 pm

    so ozone is more reactive than a normal oxygenmolecule, what would it then look like if you put a glowing piece of wood into pure ozone, because in pure oxygen it allready burns really bright

    Does he feel hot when filming this video…

    O3 + Cl. > O2 + ClO
    ClO + O3 > Cl. + 2O2

    This explanation of O3 is very well done. I (like many others) gravitate towards visual references while learning…Thank you Periodic Videos!
    Any chance at a video made on Hypothetical compounds? Cyclic ozone, hexaphenylethane and above all Bromochlorofluoroiodomethane. Again, Thank you all for the amazing videos.

    *–insert Spongebob push Bikini Bottom somewhere else joke here–*

    Now that the nonsense has been taken care of, i would like to state that the demonstration here was well done.

    I wonder though,  if Ozone never formed or couldn’t form on Earth for whatever reason,  if animals would not have simply evolved biological mechanisms for dealing with a high UV environment.

    the specific gravity of freonF-12(used as propellant) is 4.52, while water is 1.00. I’ve always wondered how freon can just “float” high in the atmosphere to interfere with ozone. I’ve found no one able to give a reasonable answer, always a bunch of gobble-d-gook trying to sound “smart”.

    look at the girls at 6:49, they laugh at him lol

  14. PMW3 on 10/01/2015 at 12:23 am

    O2 is what you call normal oxygen, O3 is what you call ozone.  But do you know what it is called when you don’t have any oxygen at all?

    haterz b laughin

  16. TheBBQify on 16/01/2015 at 12:18 am

    so much swag
    too little video

  17. apinakapinastorba on 16/01/2015 at 6:19 am

    If they open Sir Martyn’s luggage in the customs, the officers must be very confused to find all those strange plastic toys 🙂

  18. orthodium on 21/04/2015 at 2:02 am

    I’m mainly watching these videos to see his outrageous hair 🙂

  19. blindandwatching on 20/07/2015 at 3:44 am

    When are they going to do an episode about carbamide?

  20. GEZZA1 on 10/10/2015 at 3:58 am

    after many years of chemistry, my hands shake too and my hair has gone all fuzzy.

  21. Nicholas Goodfellow on 23/12/2015 at 1:27 am

    The professor gets all the beaches

  22. Abra kadabra on 02/01/2016 at 6:40 am

    Sir, having a good time at the beach? sightseeing of course?

  23. Jonathan Nickel on 17/02/2016 at 8:35 am

    I’d kill to have half the class of this man.

  24. Gibbyace on 14/09/2016 at 7:51 pm

    getting hot , right ?

  25. aKa Donut on 17/11/2016 at 6:56 pm

    This man never gets old 😉 long live professor

  26. squishybrick on 15/12/2016 at 4:46 pm

    Thumbs up if you came to this video thinking that he was going to talk about a piece of ozone he found on this beach.

  27. Madeleine Morris on 27/02/2017 at 11:31 am

    I’m in love with him, his little vest is so cute

  28. Petey Parkz on 02/08/2017 at 5:48 am

    I’m using this thumbnail for my album cover…well…I would if i were to record an album at least.

  29. Alan D'Souza on 06/09/2017 at 12:57 pm

    He went to the beach – for the plot.
