Discover everyday phenomena that ‘conceal’ many chemical phenomena
How is rust formed and how can we get rid of it? Why is it so difficult to remove oil stains? How do diapers absorb liquids? How do fireworks get their different colours?
Through this series of short experiments, students explore the chemistry concealed behind everyday phenomena. They discuss the chemical composition of cleaning agents, examine the properties of polymers and discover how plastics are created. Finally, they observe the many different applications of combustion reactions.
The aim of Everyday Life Chemistry is to demonstrate that chemistry is not limited to the laboratory but is in fact present in a multitude of phenomena we observe on a daily basis.
- Chemistry and cleaning agents.
- Combustion reactions.
