Chemical Demonstration Kit
Demonstrate the characteristic colors of several metal ions with a flame test that is large enough for an entire classroom to observe. An easy setup and excellent flame colors make this kit a perfect addition to your chemistry demonstrations. Add a few milliliters of alcohol to several borosilicate glass Petri dishes, place a small scoop of a different metallic salt into each dish, then light each solution and listen for the ooohs and aaahs! Enough materials are included to perform the demonstration seven times.
Concepts: Visible spectra.
Time Required: 15 minutes
Chemicals Provided: Copper chloride, potassium chloride, lithium chloride, strontium chloride, sodium chloride, and methyl alcohol.
Note: Perform this demonstration in a fume hood or well-ventilated lab. A safety shield and fire blanket are also highly recommended. Borosilicate glass Petri dishes are required and available separately.
