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
