Do you love chemistry and the periodic table?

Then you've come to the right place.

Periodic Videos has been making films about chemistry since 2008.

It's a collaboration between the University of Nottingham and video journalist Brady Haran.

The best way you can support us is just watching, enjoying and sharing our videos.

But if you'd like to show some extra support, you can do that here.

Choose your favourite element from our patron levels below!

All supporters get access to extra material (pictures, updates, downloads) on our Patreon feed.

And your name will also be credited on the periodicvideos.com page about your chosen element (you can opt out of this).


Supporters at "Caesium Level (55)" and above will receive monthly gifts, such as signed postcards and other items. And occasionally we'll send you links to our raw "in-production" footage.... Experiments, slow motion video and stuff we're working on which may (or may not) end up in later videos.

Your patronage will be used to make bigger and better videos.
