Disclaimer: The demonstrations contained and referenced herein are listed for the purposes of cataloging and describing chemistry demonstrations, and should only be conducted by qualified chemists who are aware of proper chemical and apparatus usage. Safety precautions such as the use of goggles, aprons, gloves, and so forth are assumed. It is also assumed that all chemicals used will be disposed of properly. Users of information posted on this site assume all responsibility for the use of that information.
Many of the demonstrations have been filmed and are available on CD-rom in the "Chemistry Comes Alive!" series through JCE Software. For those demos involving toxic chemicals or explosions, using a filmed version of the demonstration will always be safer than a live showing of the demonstration.
