Recreating one of the weirdest reactions

***Reuploaded because I used a clip of BBC footage in the intro and it was automatically flagged by the system and demonetized.

About a year ago, I saw one of the weirdest reactions that I've ever seen. It was called the Belousov-Zhabotinsky reaction, and it's one of the few good examples of an oscillating chemical reaction. I decided to try and do it myself, and this video summarizes the process that I used.

*At the 5min mark, I say 1.5g phenanthroline monohydrate, but 5g is written. It is indeed 1.5g though.

you could freeze the screen throughout this reaction at different times and then take the images and make a poster of them to sell. they're really pretty

try it in a vacuum to keep the bubbles from forming. will it work ???

Would putting the reaction in a vacuum chamber help with the bubbles? Just enough vacuum to get the bubbles to go away, but not so much that it messes up the reaction. I don't know what the vapor pressures for all the chemicals are. It might just ruin the reaction, but it may make it better. I know this is way late for NileRed to read it, but maybe someone else trying it themselves could try it in a vacuum. I don't think he has a nice big vacuum chamber to film it in, but it could be an excuse to get a plexiglass vacuum chamber.

This is irrelevant to the topic of the video, but all my life in occasional times this (13:30) wavy kind of pattern would be in my vision. Roughly for an hour or more, it's happened since I was young so I didn't really question it 'til now. But I can't describe it when I can't single out details (except it always flowed to the centre of my vision) to do a google search on it. It's so weird to see something so similar but more pronounced and obvious. This reaction is super cool by the way. p.s it's clear like eye floaties
14:41 is the moment his avatar was born.

Watching this reaction is so satisfying. It makes me think it's pretty much like an advanced version of that old science project of milk, dishsoap, and food coloring. If I had to guess, this is the same reaction that occurs in the formation of Malachite, right?
