Many chemistry jokes are puns that take advantage of the similar sounds between the names of chemical elements and other words or phrases. For example, some jokes make use of the similarity between the pronunciation of the element "barium" and the phrase "bury 'em." "What should you do with a dead chemist? Barium!"

Other types of chemistry jokes sound out chemical formulas to find their similarities with words. For example, the chemical formula BaNa2 can be represented as "banana" in jokes because the Na is repeated, as indicated by the exponent 2. Other jokes make use of the similarity between the use of the word "molar" as a unit of measurement in chemistry and as a type of tooth. Some jokes make use of the symbols of different elements on the periodic table to spell out other words. An example of this type of joke is, "Did you hear oxygen went on a date with potassium? It went OK." This joke uses the chemical symbols of oxygen, which is O, and potassium, which is K, to simulate the word "okay."
