Chemistry has been a part of our lives for much longer that we have even called it chemistry.

Investigate why the name Silicon Valley is associated with a lot of our new technology. Why would one of the elements in the Periodic Table give name to one of the centers for technological research? Watch this short youtube video on how chemistry affects our daily lives, and how research can help us to a better future!

A joint project between Molecular Frontiers, Chalmers University of Technology, University of Gothenburg and Universeum. They worked together with film company Untamed Science to launch this great video.
