Does anyone here have some experience in basic chemical reactions here ?
I'm looking into doing some abstract macro filming beyond the basic ice/oil/cloudchamber/fibers/spiders etc. (both highspeed and timelapse)

Nothing beyond what I got from high school many moons ago. Your question is a bit vague however? What specifically do you want to film? Most chemical reactions are a bit boring and don't really 'do' very much (visually), bubbling (creation of gas) or oxidising (burning) are probably the two most visually active that I can think of off the top of my head.
Sourcing chemicals will be impossibly hard also as you'de need a plethora of licenses and paperwork. Might be worth your while to go to a large school and speak to their chem department - they tend to have huge stockpiles of chems for 'demonstrations' etc and will probably let you film if you ask nicely.
edit: having thought for a bit... an abstract timelapse of the formation of rust would be pretty cool... Stick an iron nail into some salty water... hook up a 9v or 12v battery to the nail and drop both positive/negative ends with the nail into the water... rust (iron oxide) should begin to form.

hey LionDebt, thanks for the feedback. The reason why it's vague is that I want to start from a very broad unrestricted point of view. In meantime I got my hands on a microscope and looking into buying the sony FS700 (affordable highspeed 240fps and 4k ready).
But you're right, I should talk to a chemistry teacher to get some view on what's possible.
