Produce your own chlorine!
Thursday, May 2, 2013
Perform your own electrolysis. My own WHAT? Well, electrolysis: it's a chemical reaction between the electrons of electric current and the ions of a dissolved substance.
You can for instance produce some real chlorine gas (a very limited quantity of course) by applying electrolysis on a salt-in- water solution!
Complicated? Not at all. At least not on a 'kitchen-scale' :-) See here how you do it:
- Download a full description of the experiment here
- View the video animation of the experiment
- gather some simple every day stuff and start experimenting
Tell us how much fun it was and win a nice prize!
