10 Incredible Chemical Reaction GIFs Explained. We encounter thousands of chemical reactions every day: plants use them in photosynthesis, metals rust over time, and combustion reactions provide us with heat and light, among thousands of other daily uses.

10 Incredible Chemical Reaction GIFs Explained

Chemical reactions occur when reactants transform into new substances, called products, through creating and breaking bonds between atoms. Sometimes the process creates some pretty wild effects. Check out our top 10 chemical reactions below: 1) Disintegration (Mercury Reacts with Aluminum) Image credit: Theodore Gray via Youtube. Chemical Reaction Gifs. §. Here’s the weekly summary of both new chemistry research and studies that have been in the news.

This week features graphene-based microbots that could help remove lead from water, a new simple carbon-carbon bond forming reaction, and more. As always, links to further articles and original research papers are provided below, as well as further studies of interest not included in the graphic.
