Carolina Chemonstrations®: Polyurethane Foam Kit

$37.40
(in stock)

Description

  • Introduce or reinforce concepts of polymer chemistry
  • Make particulate level explanations of polymerization
  • Examine the reaction mechanism and extend observations to real-world scenarios
Initiate interest in polymer chemistry with this teacher-led, student-engaged demonstration kit. Students first predict what will happen during the demo based on previous knowledge and observe the dramatic polymerization reaction between 2 colorless, viscous liquids. After observing the rigid foam formed from the reaction, they then model or illustrate the process of polymerization and answer big-picture questions that more deeply probe the reaction mechanism. Real-world applications and uses for different types of polymers are discussed. This demo requires approximately 15 min and materials are sufficient for up to 10 demos.
