The Fluorescent Slime Polymer Chemistry Demonstration Kit is a fun, visual demo to present students with. Slime is prepared and appears green in reflected light, red in transmitted light, and bright fluorescent green in ultraviolet light.
Slime is prepared in a solution of fluorescein and bromophenol blue. The resulting slime appears green in reflected light, red in transmitted light, and bright fluorescent green in ultraviolet light.Enough materials are included to perform the demonstration seven times.
Concepts: Polymers, fluorescence, light spectra.
Time Required: 15 minutes
Materials Provided: Fluorescein/bromphenol blue solution, guar gum, sodium borate and self-closing bags.
Note: An ultraviolet light is required and available separately.
