Product Details

The Chemistry of Food Dyes is the third in a three-volume series to teach high school chemistry students about dyes and colorants through a hands-on approach. This book explores the history, safety, and purpose of food colorants. Paper chromatography is used to separate and identify several food colorants in powdered drink mixes and candies. Students also investigate the stability of food colorants in the presence of acids, bases, and oxidizing and reducing agents.
