Centrifuging a Sample  John W. Moore, Jerrold J. Jacobsen, Lois M. Browne, John F. Zimmerman
The demonstration on this page shows a technique that should not be used by undergraduate chemistry laboratory. This video shows what happens to sample in a centrifuge while the centrifuge is on, and the result of stopping the centrifuge improperly. A narrative is included in this video: The centrifuging process allows the solvent to completely settle out. The jarring caused by hand braking destroys the distinct separation between supernatant and solid.

Study of Molecular-Shape Selectivity of Zeolites by Gas Chromatography  Pei-Yu Chao, Yao-Yuan Chuang, Grace Hsiuying Ho, Shiow-Huey Chuang, Tseng-Chang Tsai, Chi-Young Lee, Shang-Tien Tsai, and Jun-Fu Huang
This analytical or physical chemistry sorption experiment uses hexane isomers as probe molecules to demonstrate the "molecular-shape selectivity" behavior of zeolites. Students can also modify the sorption protocol to build their own experiments.

Use of Wikis in Chemistry Instruction for Problem-Based Learning Assignments: An Example in Instrumental Analysis  Robert Clougherty and Mona Wells
Wikis -- interactive Web sites where visitors can both read and write to pages -- have tremendous potential as an instructional technology. In this case, a wiki used initially to provide students with a shared work-space for the development of projects in an instrumental analysis lab became an effective vehicle for peer interaction and review.
