Demonstrate polymer chemistry. Newsprint is dissolved in a solution of ammonium hydroxide and cupric sulfate. The solution is then added to a sulfuric acid solution and dark strands are formed.
Caution: WARNING: This product can expose you to chemicals including strong inorganic acid mists containing sulfuric acid, which are known to the state of California to cause cancer. For more information go to www.P65Warnings.ca.gov
