Sugar is placed in a beaker with a dash of water, and then is dehydrated using concentrated sulfuric acid. This produces steam as well as indicators of a chemical change: change in color (white to black), increase in temperature, and a distinct unpleasant odor. Great for illustrating chemical and physical properties of matter, and the value of MSDS sheets.
Demo Pack includes: 1 oz sulfuric acid, 1 oz sugar, 1 tart pan, 1 50 mL beaker, 1 craft stick, 1 pipette
