Product Details

Instant Light Powder: Chemiluminescence Demonstration Kit
by Innovating Science

With this cool experiment, you'll be adding powder to a beaker or similar container, with approximately 200mL of distilled or deionized water. While most chemical reactions that emit light are also exothermic (generate heat), this chemiluminescence kit is known as a "cool" light. Why? Because the amount of heat generated, if any, is extremely miniscule.

The light generated in this demonstration occurs due to the reagent luminol that is one of the components of the instant light powder. As the luminol reacts with an oxidizer, its molecules enter an excited state, and as they return to a non-excited (ground) state, their energy is emitted as light. In this experiment the sodium perborate that is contained in the instant light powder, when added to water, produces hydrogen peroxide and serves as the oxidizer.

This kit contains:

20g of Instant light powder

All of our reagents come standard with an SDS/MSDS sheet. If you require a copy before purchasing, please contact us.
