The Fountain Of Light Chemical Demonstration Kit provides an exciting demonstration of chemiluminescence. Present your students with a mixture that first glows red and then an eerie blue. You won't be able to wait to show off this demo.
An exciting two color demonstration of chemiluminescence. A mixture of solutions is prepared, the lights are dimmed, and hydrogen peroxide is added. The mixture first glows red and then, amidst vigorous frothing and evolution of heat, an eerie blue glow appears. You won't be able to wait until the next school year to show off this spectacular demo! Enough materials are provided to perform the demonstration seven times. Concepts: Chemiluminescence, oxidation-reduction.
Time Required: 20 minutes
Chemicals Provided: Fountain of Light Solution, potassium carbonate, formaldehyde and hydrogen peroxide solution.
Note: A large demonstration tray is recommended. See AP5429 for a description of our fiberglass demonstration tray.
