Why does the characteristic colour of gold change when
its particles are smaller than 5 nm and where can such effects
be applied in industry today? How can lycopodium be super-hydrophobic and also cause powerful explosions?
This experiment kit provides relevant answers to all those questions. We hope that the experiments described here will help you pass a few interesting hours in the world of small particles and fine structures.
Some of the experiments introduced here are intended for demonstration only, but others can be incorporated into lessons under the supervision of a teacher without excessive preparation.
The kit contains 11 experiments that help you understand the effects of chemistry:
- experiments on the lotus effect
- hydrophobic surfaces for dummies
- production of a hydrophobic surface on wood or mineral material
- production of a hydrophobic surface on textiles
- magic ink for glass (production of a hydrophilic surface – anti-fog)
- scratch-resistant wood
- production of non-flammable paper
- detection of colloids with the help of the Tyndall effect
- production of nanoscale gold
- fire-breathing with small particles
One more demonstration object illustrates other topic of chemistry:
- the use of chemistry in pregnancy tests
In our Nano Experiment kit for Chemistry lessons you’ll find plenty of “nano”.
Information for teachers:
We suggest you do the experiments from class 9 (age 13) onwards in chemistry lessons.
The experiments can either be carried out by the teacher for demonstration purposes or by the students themselves in practical trainings or extracurricular workshops. you can set up work stations for the whole class.
We also recommend our kit for activity-oriented seminars.
This Experiment kit can be ordered as a German or English version.
Costs: 140,00 € plus 19 % VAT plus shipping costs.
