Many chemical reactions, and the flows that accompany them, are invisible to the human eye. But in infrared wavelengths those same events are vibrant and energetic. In this video from the Beauty of Science group, various chemical reactions are shown in visible and IR wavelengths, revealing very different perspectives on the same thing. Many of the reactions are exothermic, meaning that they produce heat as they occur. Because of this the thermal imaging shows where the most intense reaction is occurring at a given time. Other areas gradually darken as diffusion and flow move and dilute the heat energy released. (Video and image credit: Beauty of Science, source)
