Students will learn about acids and bases through a class discussion and then test a dilute acid and dilute base with neutral litmus paper to learn how the paper indicates something is acidic or basic. Once that skill is learned they can move on to test some common items that would be found around their house to determine if they are acids or bases. Optional: Extra litmus paper is included to test more items either from home or around the school building for a greater understanding of acids and bases. The activity contains enough materials for 6 groups of students.


Safety Data Sheet

Description
Explore the interesting properties of nanomaterials by reducing a solution of gold (III) chloride to form colloidal gold nanoparticles. As the reaction occurs, the mixture undergoes multiple color changes before becoming the bright red color characteristic of small gold nanoparticles. There are enough materials to complete the demonstration 5 times.
