Introduce your students to redox indicators and astonish them with a display of reaction kinetics. Students predict what will happen when you combine and shake a solution of dextrose, potassium hydroxide, and methylene blue. The challenge for students is to explain on a particulate level why the solution turns blue when shaken and colorless when left undisturbed. This demonstration requires approximately 5 min and materials are sufficient to prepare 5 bottles.

Introduce your students to redox indicators and astonish them with a display of reaction kinetics by performing the classic blue bottle demonstration. Students discuss real-world and career applications of indicators and reaction kinetics and then draw upon prior knowledge to predict what will happen when you combine and shake a solution of dextrose, potassium hydroxide, and methylene blue. The challenge for students is to explain on a particulate level why the solution turns blue when shaken and colorless when left undisturbed. This demonstration requires approximately 5 min and materials are sufficient to prepare 5 bottles. Each bottle can be used to perform the demonstration multiple times.
