Perform an autocatalytic reaction, observe how the product of a reaction can catalyze further reactions.
- Understand and demonstrate autocatalysis through an autocatalytic reaction
- Aligned to NGSS practices
Catalysis is a basic principle of chemistry and biochemistry. Some reactions are autocatylic; the product of the reaction actually catalyzes further reactions. The reaction is initiated with acid and produces acid to continue the reaction.
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
