Slow Motion Spectacular: Aluminium Powder Ignites in the Lab…

YouTube scientists Periodic Table of Videos have this week released a spectacular slow motion video, ‘Aluminium Powder Ignites’. A video that captures aluminium powder as it explodes, the moment it converts from powder to pure energy in the blink of an eye.

With slow motion cameras at the ready the aluminium powder is introduced to a Bunsen burners flame, resulting in a very energetic reaction.

Presented for your viewing pleasure is the slow motion video that celebrates Aluminium Week by blowing some up. Sit back, relax and enjoy this spectacular chemical reaction.
