Written by F.C. Brown and published by the English Universities Press, this book contains guidance on how to carry out a number of laboratory experiments to investigate rates of reaction and energy changes. Students, in carrying out these experiments and in attempting to answer the questions that are to be found...
This chapter, from the Royal Society of Chemistry, considers areas where students are known to have difficulties in learning about reactions in chemistry. It also introduces some of the classroom exercises to help teachers elicit and challenge their students’ alternative conceptions.
An invaluable practical guide on how to safely undertake a range of visually and intellectually appealing chemical reactions. Includes alternatives to some traditional activities such as the thermit reaction, exploding hydrogen, burning fuels using spirit burners and extracting caffeine from tea.
This Catalyst article looks at the process of baking biscuits. All cooking involves chemical reactions but you are not normally aware of them happening. There is an obvious thermal decomposition reaction which takes place in the middle of this recipe – and you get fabulous ginger biscuits at...
