Product Details

Introduce the basic concepts of osmosis and diffusion with this involving laboratory activity. Using a colloidal solution of starch and sodium chloride students will clearly observe the process of dialysis, observe diffusion through a semipermeable membrane, separate an inorganic salt from a colloid and test for the presence of chloride ions and starch. Enough materials are supplied for 30 students working in pairs. Detailed student and teacher materials provided.


Materials Included in Kit: 
Iodine solution, 100 mL
Silver nitrate solution, 0.1 M, 100 ml
Sodium chloride solution, 1 M, 500 mL
Starch, soluble, potato, 15 g
Dialysis tubing, 10 feet
Pipet, Beral-type, thin stem, 30
