Sometimes chemical reactions end with a bang, even if it’s not intentional. Check out the below video of the Tianjin Port explosions:
It’s not clear what exactly caused the explosions. The site was used for hazardous chemical storage. According to the local authorities, there were far higher inventories of chemicals stored than regulations allow.
Unfortunately, some people lost their lives due to the explosions. Additionally, some very hazardous chemicals such as sodium cyanide were released. Hopefully such a tragedy won’t occur again!
