    hi guys,
    I'm looking for cool chemistry experiments, which can be done in a homelaboratory. Im working on a list of how to do's, explainations where to buy, guides and good experiments.
    It all started out when I found the copy of 'the golden book of chemistry experiments' on the forum. A kids book, yes, - you won't believe it if you have read it. It shows you how to make lots of basic chemicals, elements and the basic home laboratory equipment.
    Now I have already quite a collection:
    Briggs-Rauscher Oscillating Color Change Reaction, N2O, SF6, apparate, and other things

    help me find other chemical reactions&experiments, which I can include in my list.

    thank you in advance

    Mark


    I haven't come to fight my word, but to find the truth.

    Thermite reaction remains one of my favourites, but at 3000 degrees C it ain't cool, and certainly not something to do in the home!

    Similarly for yellow phosphorus dissolved in carbon disulphide and poured onto sodium chlorate. I'm surprised I still have all my fingers after trying that one in my pyromaniacal teens! Unless you really want to go to hospital I recommend against it.

    For lesser bangs, ammonia & iodine ("nitrogen iodide") is a traditional favourite of pranksters.

    Iodine clock is quiet, fun and safe, if a little tricky.
