Metal displacement, precipitation, crystallization, and more: This is Beautiful Chemistry, a 4K UltraHD short film project from Beauty of Science that aims to share how beautiful chemical reactions can be. From Tsinghua University Press and University of Science and Technology of China, it was filmed and edited by Yan Liang. The project’s goal:

More than 100 years ago, German biologist Ernst Haeckel published his famous work Art Forms in Nature, which was very popular in his time. His exquisite, Art Nouveau style illustrations brought exotic marine and microscopic life forms to the the eyes of the public. We hope to follow the footsteps of Haeckel, using digital media and technology to bring the beauty and wonder from the chemistry world to a wide audience. In addition, we want to achieve a unique aesthetic of chemistry, making chemistry approachable and lovable.
