The Chemistry of Alcohol and How It Gets People Drunk

The American Chemical Society series Reactions explains the chemistry of alcohol and how it gets people drunk as well as some of its other effects like making bad decisions, stumbling, and having to pee.

It’s almost time to ring in 2017. And since most New Year’s celebrations include alcohol, Reactions’ latest episode explains the chemistry behind its effects – drunkenness, frequent bathroom breaks and occasionally poor decision-making.
