Bye-bye ‘Bytesize,’ ‘Reactions’ debuts with chemistry lifehacks video

WASHINGTON, Jan. 27, 2014 — After several years and millions of views, the American Chemical Society (ACS), the world’s largest scientific society, is bidding farewell to its popular YouTube series Bytesize Science.  But you can’t keep a great chemistry video series down for long.

We’re proud to announce Reactions, a new weekly video series about the chemistry all around us. And we’re kicking it off with a video that is one-part Mendeleev, one-part MacGyver: Chemistry Lifehacks. Want to know how to make your coffee less bitter? Got a rusted-out skillet you can’t clean? Check out our debut Reactions video to find easy chemistry-fueled solutions for both dilemmas, plus more useful tips to improve your life dramatically (OK, maybe just a little bit). The video is available here.

Subscribe to the series at, and follow us on Twitter @ACSreactions to be the first to see our latest videos.
