It's All About Carbon



NPR has teamed up with Robert Krulwich to provide a chemistry lesson on Carbon. In a 5 part animated series, Robert explores the behavior of the carbon atom.

Above is the introductory segment of a five-part series that explains how carbon atoms form bonds, break apart and create the conditions that can lead to global warming. Since most of us are beginners when it comes to elemental chemistry, this is a lesson in five, easy-to-grasp steps. And grasping, by the way, is a big part of the story.
