Description 

Glowing Chemistry is a science kit that focuses on light effects and luminescence; examining light resulting from absorption of radiation or from biological or chemical processes. Explore the fascinating world of chemical reactions that produce light, called chemiluminescence. The thorough manual contains 22 experiments that explore the surprising world of light chemistry.

Mix up a magical blue light in a test tube using the glowing chemical luminol and other substances. With some cool chemical reactions, even coins and radishes begin to glow. You will discover how the natural world is full of luminous mysteries: bright spots on bananas, fluorescent chestnut bark, and glowing creatures in the sea. Experiment with the special ultraviolet lamp to reveal things that would otherwise be invisible. Learn about the electromagnetic spectrum, including visible and invisible light. Experiment with glow-in-the-dark plastic. Build a fun glowing puppet theatre to play around with glowing pigments and discover real-world applications for glowing chemistry.
