Safety: Before conducting the lab, review with the class the safety precautions on the student page. This activity should be performed in a well-ventilated laboratory. Remind students that iodine is toxic by ingestion and inhalation; it is corrosive to the skin, eyes, and the respiratory tract. Students should avoid inhalation of iodine vapors by keeping the iodine bottle covered throughout the lab. Remind students that hydrochloric acid solution is corrosive to eyes and skin and that cupric chloride solution is toxic if ingested. Students should avoid contact of all chemicals with eyes and all body tissues. Students should wear chemical splash goggles, chemical-resistant gloves, and a chemical-resistant apron. Remind students to wash hands thoroughly with soap and water before leaving the laboratory.
