Product Details

What is your favorite color? Color affects our senses, our moods, even our learning. In this lab activity, students investigate the reaction of five different dyes with a special multifiber fabric containing strips of wool, acrylic, polyester, nylon, cotton and acetate. The brilliant color patterns produced by different dyes on the multifiber fabric teach students about the structures of dye and fabric molecules and the types of bonding interaction between them. Chemistry has never looked so good! Includes reproducible student handouts, detailed background information, complete Teacher Notes with answers to all questions and all necessary chemicals and consumable supplies.

Complete for 30 students working in groups of three.
