Disappearing Ink


Publication 91084

Price: FREE

It’s magic! It’s a mystery! No—it’s science. Students write secret messages using a disappearing ink sample and then use chemistry to develop and transmit the messages. This activity allows students to explore the properties of a characteristic acid–base indicator, thymolphthalein, and to extend their understanding of pH and acid–base concepts.
