Foam Explosion

WASHINGTON, June 14, 2016 — You might have seen this wacky experiment in a chemistry class or on late-night TV. Dropping a mixture into some hydrogen peroxide produces a huge foamy flume. But what’s actually causing that big mess? Turns out it’s a great illustration of a key concept in chemistry. In this week’s video, Reactions teams up with chemistry professor Matt Hartings, Ph.D., to explain the Elephant Toothpaste experiment. Check it out here:  http://youtu.be/PX7TIqAJRSY.
