Science is very mysterious and it is also very interesting but be aware because it is also dangerous. Through the mixing of some certain chemicals, you can actually see some unexpected reactions. Some of the experiments are also shown in schools not only for educating them about chemistry but also developing their interest in it.

So, let us explore and see some of the craziest experiments:-

Sodium Polyacrylate and Water

Sodium Polyacrylate is considered to be the superabsorbent polymer, during the reaction of it with water the polymer’s ion attract the water by diffusion. And in result water absorbs the chemical within just a few seconds and in seconds it converts the water into a gel. So, kids if you want to show magic to your friends you can try this trick at home and have fun.

Cesium and Water

In chemistry, cesium is one of the most reactive alkali metals and whenever it comes in contact with water, it reacts to form cesium hydroxide and hydrogen gas. This exothermic reaction happens so rapidly that it causes the hydrogen bubbles to form around the cesium, then it rises to the surface and explosion happens.

Calcium Gluconate

Calcium gluconate is typically used to treat calcium deficiencies, but if it heated similarly shown in the video, it causes a huge expansion in the molecular structure. This results in grey snake-like lather form because of the vaporization of the water and dehydration of hydroxyl group within the compound. But be aware kids, never do this alone.

Hydrogen Peroxide and Potassium Iodide

You make have seen people doing this in many videos, but do you know that you can also do this? You need to mix hydrogen peroxide and potassium iodide in proper proportions, as the hydrogen peroxide decomposes very quickly and food coloring and soap are added in the reaction so that colored foam create in the result.
