Making the world’s most expensive carbonated water!

From NileRed. Contest link: http://bit.ly/2ZwEPd8 ——————————————- For this video, I’ll be making the world’s first real diamond water. To do this, I’ll be burning diamonds, which are nearly pure carbon (and definitely not "forever"), to make diamond CO2 gas and then using that CO2 to make extremely expensive carbonate water. ——————————————- Nile Red Shop: https://nile.red

Making toilet paper moonshine

From NileRed. **Major correction: I wrongly and repeatedly referred to T. Reesei as being a yeast, when it is actually another type of fungus. Yeast is also a type of fungus, so my comments about reaction conditions remain true, but it is incorrect to call T. Reesei a yeast. Or to say that the cellulase…

The microwave plasma mystery

From NileRed. Sometime last year, I got really interested in microwave plasma, which can be made from a lot of things like lit matches, aluminum foil or just some grapes. However, when I went searching for more info about it, I really couldn’t find much of anything. There was also no explanation as to why…

You can’t smell metal

From NileRed. Pick up a shirt! https://www.bonfire.com/nilered/ ————————————————— Metal has no odor and you can’t smell it. But what are we smelling then? It turns out that it’s mostly a chemical called 1-octen-3-one, which is generated when your skin oils react with metal that you’ve touched. I thought this was really interesting, and I decided…

Making raspberry perfume

From NileRed. In this video, I get a bit back into making compounds with odors and scents. I chose to go with Raspberry Ketone, because I thought it was an interesting molecule and the synthesis seemed fun. However, in the future, I think I’m going to venture into the territory of nasty smelling compounds. For…

Turning liquid mercury into a weird sponge

From NileRed. https://teespring.com/nilered My friends Instagram page: https://www.instagram.com/ray.uppal/ —————————————- In this video, I continue my amalgam series and I attempt to make the so-called ammonium amalgam. This was done by combining an ammonium salt with sodium amalgam that I made in a previous video.

The chemical trafficlight

From NileRed. In this video, I’ll be recreating the popular demonstration called the Chemical Traffic Light Reaction. Note: I made a mistake in the video. I said the carbonate solution would have a pH around 8-9, but it would actually be closer to 11-12. I was thinking of sodium bicarbonate when I said that. Video…

Making transparent wood

From NileRed. This is probably the longest video that I’ve ever posted on my channel, but I wanted it to be as complete as possible! A few months ago, I saw a video made by AvE where he tried to make transparent wood. After seeing it, I was really interested in trying it out for…
