Product Details

Tired of chemiluminescent experiments that only last for a few seconds? Now you can demonstrate the conversion of chemical energy into light energy for nearly 10 minutes. Simply turn down the lights, combine two solutions and then listen to the oohs and aahs from your students. Our chemists at Flinn think this demonstration is unbelievable! Enough materials are provided to perform the demonstration seven times. Concepts: Chemilumescence, oxidation-reduction. Time Required: 10 minutes Chemicals Provided: An activator solution and a second solution with a mixture of chemiluminescent chemicals.

Performance Expectations

MS-PS1-2. Analyze and interpret data on the properties of substances before and after the substances interact to determine if a chemical reaction has occurred.
HS-PS1-1. Use the periodic table as a model to predict the relative properties of elements based on the patterns of electrons in the outermost energy level of atoms.
HS-PS1-2. Construct and revise an explanation for the outcome of a simple chemical reaction based on the outermost electron states of atoms, trends in the periodic table, and knowledge of the patterns of chemical properties.
