Hello!

This other day I had a very fruitful and insightful discussion on using etchant solution against glass, since I was so fascinating by the idea of what might different chemicals would look like inside a glass container. Note that I am not expert chemist, I have been searching around the forum for a list of what might various chemical added together would look like. But frankly have no results, so I decided:

Why not make a master list for it?

The list is also open to anyone who want to participate,

But if you would like to participate, all I ask of you is that to include a very clear photo of you scientific result, and that of the names of the materials you used to create this.

a.) Clarity of Image (please match the image your eyes can see with that of digitally as close as possible): if you need help on taking photos manually, try to look up some google reference, there's a lot out there.

b.) Details of Material Used (if available, the ingredients on the bottle as well)

The point of this list is to educate others and inform them of results you have achieved, so if anyone ever needed a pictorial reference of what certain chemicals would look like, they have this post to reference to. And maybe, perhaps be able to replicate the result, so they can save time on experimenting onto their goal.

the only question i have is regarding your vials: they really really confuse me bcause I have some which look really similar but have the cork in the other end and a sealed bottom where your cork is.

I'd also like to add: creamy shampoo/conditioner in clear hand soap has a tendancy to separate over time and look cool Smiley perhaps your next experiment could be different kins of soaps as they have the added benefit of not going moldy Cheesy

Back in the day, before such things were dangerous. There used to be a rather good demonstration of immiscible liquids that we would set up in the lab at school.

A tall measuring cylinder had alternating layers of liquids added that did not mix, so they settle out in order of their density.

As an additional feature, various recognizable objects could be added to the column so that they floated at the boundary between two layers where they just bracketed the density of the object.

There is an example here:-



Doesn't look all that dangerous, does it?

But, you see, we used to make the first two layers from Mercury and Carbon Tetra-chloride.
