The Chemistry of Glow Sticks Click to enlarge Everyone’s familiar with glow sticks, but it’s likely that fewer are familiar with the chemistry behind their glow. You may have wondered what happens when you snap a glow stick to activate it; by doing this, you’re actually kicking off a chemical process that eventually leads to the production of the coloured light. But how does this process work, and why do you need to bend the glow stick to initiate it? Glow sticks actually contain two separate compartments, with two different chemical solutions. The reaction that takes place is between the hydrogen peroxide solution and the diphenyl oxalate. The exact energy of the light given off is dependent on the structure of the molecule, and this allows different colours to be achieved. You may also have noticed that the packaging of glow sticks often advises that they shouldn’t be cut open. On a final note, glow stick reactions, like many chemical processes, can be influenced by temperature. References & Further Reading

A Citizen's Guide to Radon | Radon | US Environmental Protection Agency The Guide to Protecting Yourself and Your Family From Radon U.S. EPA/OAR/IED (6609J) EPA 402-K-12-002, May 2012 [Please note, the Spanish version of the Citizen's Guide has not been updated. EPA Recommends Test your home for radon — it's easy and inexpensive.Fix your home if your radon level is 4 picocuries per liter, or pCi/L, or higher.Radon levels less than 4 pCi/L still pose a risk, and in many cases may be reduced. Radon is estimated to cause thousands of lung cancer deaths in the U.S. each year. * Radon is estimated to cause about 21,000 lung cancer deaths per year, according to EPA's 2003 Assessment of Risks from Radon in Homes (EPA 402-R-03-003). Top of page Overview Radon is a cancer-causing, radioactive gas. You can't see radon. Radon is estimated to cause many thousands of deaths each year. Radon can be found all over the U.S. Radon comes from the natural (radioactive) breakdown of uranium in soil, rock and water and gets into the air you breathe. You should test for radon. Step 1.

What makes disappearing ink disappear? | 200 Questions About Chemistry Carbon dioxide. A common type of disappearing ink is based on an acid-base indicator called thymolphthalein. This is a molecule that absorbs visible light when it is in an alkaline solution, and becomes colorless in a neutral or acidic solution. Thymophthalein To turn it into a blue ink, we add sodium hydroxide (lye), a strong alkali. But if we allow the ink to soak into paper or cloth, so that there is a lot of surface area in contact with the air, it will absorb carbon dioxide from the air. The neutral solution is no longer blue, but colorless. FAQ Will dryer sheets or eating special herbs and spices, garlic, vitamin B-1, or bananas ward off biting insects? There is a long list of “repellent” urban legends, including these. NONE of these approaches work reliably. If you want to be protected from insect and tick bites, use a DEET-based repellent. Back to Top Do herbal oils, skin lotions, “natural” plant extracts mixed in oil, and homeopathic approaches repel biting insects? Most of these work for about 20 minutes and are no more effective than smearing cooking oil on your skin. In the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine, Richard J. Does DEET cause seizures in children? This recurring rumor is without scientific foundation. I have read something about DEET causing neurological symptoms in laboratory animals in studies at a well-known university. The researcher conducting studies used DEET mixed with known neurotoxins, so a neurological finding is not unusual or unexpected in this instance. Can DEET be used with sunscreen? No.

Twelve Free Chemistry Databases Just two years ago, trying to find free online chemistry databases was an exercise in futility.

15 Awesome Chemistry GIFs You don’t need to watch Breaking Bad to know that chemistry is pretty awesome. Below, we explore our favorite 15 chemistry GIFs and the science behind them (when we could figure it out): Melting Metal With Magnets The Science: The copper wire has a significant amount of AC electricity running through it, causing it to act like a really strong electromagnet. In the metal slug, eddy currents form due to the magnetic field the copper wire is causing while the copper wire has high frequency AC flowing through it. The metal slug’s electric resistance causes a portion of the electric energy to turn into heat, but the heat builds up until the metal slug becomes white hot and melts. Orange LED Light In Liquid Nitrogen The Science: When an LED is immersed in liquid nitrogen, the electrons lose a lot of thermal energy, even when the light isn’t turned on.

10 Household Cleaners To Avoid At All Costs | Kirsten Hudson Nothing like mopping your floors, scrubbing your counters and cleaning your shower with hazardous waste. That’s essentially what you’re doing if you use many name-brand household cleaners to get your home spic-and-span. But you eco-conscious clean freaks probably already knew that. If you’re concerned about your health and helping the environment, your toxic household cleaners were likely the first to go. And for good reason. The household cleaning industry is largely unregulated and companies aren’t required to include ingredient lists for cleaning products, like they are for food, drugs and personal care products. Companies take advantage of that lack of regulation to make bogus claims about their cleaning products and to include toxic chemicals in their products without letting consumers know. The EWG debuted its EWG Cleaners Database in September 2012. Simple Green Concentrated All-Purpose Cleaner Scrubbing Bubbles – Antibacterial Bathroom Cleaner & Extend-A-Clean Mega Shower Foamer
