In this classic experiment, from the Royal Society of Chemistry, students heat a large molecule with a catalyst and collect the gas produced. The gas produced is tested with bromine water for the presence of a double bond. The resource is set out as teachers' notes followed by the students' page which presents the task to be investigated. A list of apparatus and chemicals needed for the investigation is provided, together with teaching tips. Curriculum links include: cracking, hydrocarbons, catalytic cracking, useful products from oil.
