1. The World of Chemistry · Questions
The relationships of chemistry to the other sciences and to everyday life are presented.
7. The Periodic Table · Questions
The development and arrangement of the periodic table of elements is examined.
13. The Driving Forces · Questions
Endothermic and exothermic reactions are investigated and the role of entropy is revealed.
19. Metals · Questions
Malleability, ductility, and conductivity are examined, along with methods for extracting metals from ores and blending alloys.
2. Color · Questions [FREE]
The search for new colors in the mid 1800s boosted the development of modern chemistry.
8. Chemical Bonds · Questions (FREE)
The differences between ionic and covalent bonds are explained by the use of scientific models and examples from nature.

14. Molecules in Action · Questions
Observing molecules during chemical reactions helps explain the role of catalysts. Dynamic equilibrium is also demonstrated.

20. On the Surface · Questions
Surface science examines how surfaces react with each other at the molecular level.

3. Measurement · Questions
The distinction between accuracy and precision and its importance in commerce and science are explained.
9. Molecular Architecture · Questions
The program examines isomers and how the electronic structure of a molecule's elements and bonds affects its shape and physical properties

15. The Busy Electron · Questions
The principles of electrochemical cell design are explained through batteries, sensors, and a solar-powered car.

21. Carbon · Questions
The versatility of carbon's molecular structures and the enormous range of properties of its compounds are presented.

4. Modeling the Unseen · Questions
Models are used to explain phenomena that are beyond the realm of ordinary perception.
10. Signals From Within · Questions
Chemists' knowledge of the interaction of radiation and matter is the basis for analytical methods of sensitivity and specificity.

16. The Proton in Chemistry · Questions
Demonstrations explain pH and how it is measured, and the important role of acids and bases.

22. The Age of Polymers · Questions
How chemists control the molecular structure to create polymers with special properties is explored.

5. A Matter of State · Questions
Matter is examined in its three principal states — gases, liquids, and solids — relating the visible world to the submicroscopic.
11. The Mole · Questions
Using Avogadro's law, the mass of a substance can be related to the number of particles contained in that mass
17. The Precious Envelope · Questions
The earth's atmosphere is examined through theories of chemical evolution; ozone depletion and the greenhouse effect are explained.

23. Proteins · Questions
The program examines proteins — polymers built from only 20 basic amino acids.

6. The Atom · Questions
Viewers journey inside the atom to appreciate its architectural beauty and grasp how atomic structure determines chemical behavior.
12. Water · Questions
The special chemical properties of water are explored, along with the need for its protection and conservation.

18. The Chemistry of the Earth · Questions
Silicon, a cornerstone of the high-tech industry, is one of the elements of the Earth highlighted in this program.

24. The Genetic Code · Questions
The structure and role of the nucleic acids, DNA and RNA, are investigated.

25. Chemistry and the Environment · Questions
Dump site waste management demonstrates chemistry's benefits and problems.

26. Futures · Questions
Interviews with leaders from academia and industry explore the frontiers of chemical research.
