Elements: The Hanover Poisoning

Introducing Elements, Compounds and Mixtures

A poisoned umbrella and a forensic investigation…using an unusual and as-yet-unsolved true crime as a launching place, this video shows that the chemistry of matter matters. Elements, as represented on the periodic table, are made up of only one type of atom. Using mercury—and mercury poisoning—as an example, this video examines the chemical and structural qualities of elements and the anomalies that make mercury unusual. Complemented by clear graphics, it is essential viewing for students of chemistry.
