14 Jokes Only Chemistry Geeks Will Understand

Better call your oxidizing agent.. Oh wait no you left him someone higher up in the activity series hahaha


Chlorine: element with symbol Cl, atomic number 17; in the halogen group & is the second lightest halogen after fluorine; a yellow-green gas under standard conditions, where it forms diatomic molecules; has highest electron affinity and 3rd highest electronegativity of all elements; a strong oxidizing agent; free chlorine is rare on Earth & is usually a result of oxidation; most common compound of chlorine: sodium chloride


H2O2 is a very common oxidizing agent and useful in organic chemistry @organicese


Chemically, Oxidative stress is the stress related to the increased production of the oxidizing agents than that of the antioxidants inside our body cells. The Oxidative stress causes many ailments like stress, headache, cardiovascular diseases, depression etc. Several companies provide with the herbal solution for reducing the Oxidative Stress and promise for a healthier life.

That’s the idea – and based on the reagents in typical organic chemistry textbooks. Description from I searched for this on

Foxfire, also sometimes referred to as “fairy fire”, is the bioluminescence created by some species of fungi present in decaying wood. The bluish green glow is attributed to luciferase, an oxidizing agent, which emits light as it reacts with luciferin. Although the purpose is unknown, it is widely believed that the light is meant to attract insects to spread its spores or, to act as a warning to hungry animals, similar to the bright colors exhibited by some poisonous or unpalatable…


Cerium. Examples of applications include chemical oxidizing agent, polishing powder, yellow colors in glass and ceramics, catalyst for self-cleaning ovens, fluid catalytic cracking catalyst for oil refineries, and ferrocerium flints for lighters.
