Chem Clip: Timelapse of Mercuric Bromide Crystallizing

First published at 18:11 UTC on April 5th, 2021.

In this short video I captured a timelapse of HgBr2 crystallizing from solution. I made the HgBr2 by reacting mercurous nitrate with elemental bromine and HBr. The video compresses a little over an hour into about 2 3/4 minutes.
