Product Description

By: The Flinn Staff

An exciting demonstration showing the solubility of a gas in water and the conversion of chemical energy to light. Using the old-time ammonia fountain demonstration we've added a “special twist” by having a chemiluminescent reaction also take place at the same time. This demonstration is not only exciting to watch, but will also help your students understand some difficult chemistry concepts. Enough materials are provided to perform the demonstration seven times.
Concepts: Chemiluminescence, solubility.
Time Required: 25 minutes
Materials Provided: Hydrogen peroxide, sodium carbonate, luminol, sodium bicarbonate, ammonium carbonate, copper(II) sulfate, and a T-shaped tubing connector.
Note: A one-liter, round-bottom flask and a few mL of concentrated ammonium hydroxide are required and available separately. Perform this demonstration in a fume hood or well-ventilated lab


Flask, Boiling, Round Bottom, Borosilicate Glass, 1000 mL
Ammonium Hydroxide, Reagent, 100 mL
 HAZARD ALERT: Both liquid and vapor are extremely irritating—-especially to eyes. Dispense in a hood and be sure an eyewash is accessible. Moderately toxic by ingestion and inhalation. Serious respiratory hazard. LD50 350 mg/kg. Storage: Inorganic...
