I find that chemistry is often taught poorly or without a purpose. Because of this, people tend to lose interest and sometimes even start to hate it. In each video that I make, I try to balance theory with purpose. My goal is to show the natural beauty of chemistry in fun and interesting ways.

In terms of education, I have a BSc in Biochemistry, with a minor in pharmacology. However, I've always been a lot more drawn to applied chemistry. So after finishing my degree, I worked as a lab tech in an organic lab and then as a chemistry grad student. However, I ended up leaving my graduate studies early to focus on this channel. Now, making chemistry videos has become my full-time job.

    Me: "Man, I'm so thirsty, but all I have in the cupboard are these gloves.." NileRed: "Take a seat.. I got this."

  4. There is beauty in your soul

    Its funny how they think it causes autism in children..as if ..we aren't just born that way y'know. But yeah blame it on vacinne and try to remove us from existence, easier than accepting that different humans exist on this planet.

  5. Matt Forbes

    I love the pseudoscience hate in your videos. Keep it up.

  6. Shu Meister

    I've never enjoyed watching aluminium oxide grow so much. I like that you can get dark and light stripes out of it.

    Can we drink sanitizer it has 70% alcohol....or make a video on how to make sanitizers drinkable

  8. Powderhond

    During the production of German Hefeweizen beer, an important flavour chemical is created by the yeast: Isoamyl Acetate (banana flavour ester). Could this be extracted from beer to make banana flavour candy or drink?


    "We just have to do a bit of chemistry" Well I see no reason for further explanation, sweet

  10. Dylanger Gutierrez

    Love the shot at 21:19 where you stabilize the jug slammed on the table. Excellent comedic timing

  11. The Fool

    now i can drink and slowly die at the same time. Perfect

    Hey can we please extract a lot of DMT together! :)

    Nile Red on picnic date: Some more grape soda? Date: Nah, thanks. It burns a bit. NR: Yeah, I made it myself from some disposable gloves though. Date: *sputters* FROM...? *chokes* NR: *pats her back* Yup, "From"! Date: *coughing* Water! I need *cough* water! NR: Is seltzer okay? I brought the- Date: *snatches proffered glass of sparkling water and guzzles it* NR: Wow, slow down! It took hundreds of dollars worth of diamonds to make that water! Date: *chokes again* *laughs* It's kind of meh, did you use expensive spring water? NR: I-uh...These sandwiches are great, though. Did you make these yourself? Date: Sure, but not like you made the grape soda. My ingredients started off further down the supply chain. NR: *laughs* Date: *laughs* What about this cake? Did you make the chocolate from engine oil or something? NR: *laughs nervously* No, no! I got most of the ingredients from a prepackaged box. Date: *sighs in relief* It's quite sweet though, did you use artificial sweetener? NR: *smiles evilly at the camera*

    Lmao. ASMR almond milk. Whispers: " I am mixing the water with the almonds" ( taps bag with almond)

  22. I am Notgoodatthinkingofnames

    Yeah man ill be honest I have no idea what your saying but I like watching you make weird shit out of other weird shit

  23. Kaori Yukiko

    +NileRed why do you advise, at the end, not putting the pure sodium chloride on your food?

  24. Corbie's World

    Am I wrong or do I remember a guy in the 70s... I think 🤔, that ate cyanide in very small doses so he could become immune to it? ....... I think it killed him....if it actually happened and I'm not bat shit crazy......well I am but that's beside the point.🤪

  25. tahome izwah

    There's sodium in the glass, which is why you always get that peak.

    Also if the potassium reacts mostly to oxygen could they blast the package with nitrogen and than vacuum seal 🤔

  31. Corbie's World

    WOAH!!! Your channel!!!! Where have you been my whole life? Why am I just finding you now? You are much better than Steve Spangler, Action lab, Bill Nye, Beakmans world, even Mr.Wizzard. Subscribing NOW!

  32. Nico The Hero

    So if make a slow release sodium and potassium toilet parcel i could dare I say it RULE THE WORLD!!!!!

    For caffeine extraction from coffee the process of choice is „supercritical carbon dioxide decaffeination“ giving the highest caffeine yield - since you‘ve made this “solid air” sponge thingy you might have the equipment to do this with Red Bull.
