Reactions is a show that uncovers the chemistry all around us. We answer the burning questions you’ve always wanted to ask:

-How can I get my smartphone battery to last longer?
-What if humans could photosynthesize?
-How can I get my teeth to look whiter?
-Why is pizza so delicious?
-Is it OK to pee in the pool? (Spoiler: No. No it’s not. Stop it.)

Reactions are happening everywhere. But the best ones are right here on YouTube. Subscribe!
