Microchemistry (micro-scale chemistry) is ideally suited for home labs! It reduces prep time and lab costs while minimizing chemical use and disposal.
This excellent microchemistry lab can be used as a stand-alone lab course or in conjunction with any high school chemistry curriculum. It contains 17 lessons, each with an experiment to demonstrate a chemistry concept: chromatography, melting points, conductivity of solutions, mole ratios, double replacement reactions, oxidation- reduction reactions, decomposition, Charles' Law, Boyle's Law, hydrated salts, pH and pH indicators, titration, molar mass, buffer solutions, concentration and reaction rates, temperature and reaction rates, and galvanic cells.
The kit includes a complete lab manual with solutions in the back, 22 chemicals, safety goggles, and micro-scale lab equipment. You'll need to provide a few household materials and a heat source (like a gas burner or alcohol lamp). A digital multimeter is needed for one optional lab. Safety gloves are also recommended. There are enough chemicals to do each experiment 5 times. The chemicals in this advanced chemistry kit can be harmful if misused. Use with adult supervision. Ages 13 & up.
These labs have been correlated to go with the A Beka, Alpha Omega, Bob Jones, and Apologia chemistry curriculum! (Not all the labs will match up to each of these.)
