Chemistry connects people. There is chemistry between us when we connect with one other, both literally and scientifically;  sharing a laugh with friends produces a chemical called serotonin. So we took our time scouring the new SciComm happening on TikTok to share with you this well-curated list of our favorite accounts sharing videos about chemistry. We hope this list will feed your passion for chemistry in your free time. From educational to hilarious, this list has it all!

Before you start, did you know we're on TikTok too?! Hop over and follow us at @geniuslabgear for fun science and chemistry videos!
