So I have a request. I've been trying to do research as to what vape juice and nicotine salts are and how they're made but all I can find are videos of vape users doing DIY videos. Also in every one I watched they said "now I'm not a chemist so..." so I didn't learn anything. It would be nice if you could do something on the topic.

Just my mind running to somewhere but, Is Aerogel a spaced thin silicon? My mind thinked it's just silicon thats as thin as 15 micrometers or something spaced a couple micrometers. And I'm fucking dumb cause it isn't.

I wonder about those DIY chambers - are they made as a teaching resource, for universities and such? I also wonder how do they produce the gel in factories. If similar methods would be used - it would probably too expensive for most uses ;)

hey idk how to get in contact with you or pose a challenge, especially since i dont use twitter, so i figure i would comment on your most recent video. Can you get raw sulfur from rotten eggs? and would this be a sizeable amount of income selling raw sulfur back to manufacturers as a individual farmer? really i am just curious as the gains of synthesizing sulfur from rotten eggs and if left over eggs from an individual farm could be put to use for a profit. or really any kind of gain from waste. i am also posting this on cody's lab latest video to see if he will take the challenge as well, as you guys are the best scientific synthesizing content creators on youtube that i know of.

I don't think that 'hosing' is a word or term to be used in this context. Tubing, perhaps.

i wanna see him attempt something similar to rearden steel, from atlas shrugged. a steel strong as or stronger than steel, but lighter than steel, with the properties of stainless steel. and i feel that somehow the process of making aerogel could be used, im some sort of way.
