Temperature  
Use of a thermometer is demonstrated with examples including the use of melting point apparatuses and calorimeters.
Laboratory Equipment / Apparatus
Controlling the Temperature  
The need and methods to control the heating rate near the melting point of the solid are demonstrated.
Laboratory Equipment / Apparatus
Reactions: Reflux at Constant Temperature  
The technique of refluxing a reaction mixture is demonstrated.
Laboratory Equipment / Apparatus
Sulfuric Acid into Water and Ice  
When sulfuric acid is mixed with water the temperature rises. When sulfuric acid is added to ice, the temperature rises at first, but as the ice melts, the temperature falls.
Calorimetry / Thermochemistry
Rates of Reactions  
The effects of a variety of variables, including concentration, temperature and catalysts, on reaction rate are shown.
Kinetics
Phase Changes  
By using a coolant at a temperature below the boiling point of the gases chlorine, bromine and iodine, the gases are condensed into liquid form.
Phases / Phase Transitions / Diagrams
Critical Point of Benzene  
A sealed tube containing benzene liquid and vapor is heated. As the critical temperature is approached, the meniscus flattens. At the critical temperature the meniscus disappears, and separate liquid and vapor phases can no longer be detected.
Phases / Phase Transitions / Diagrams
Measuring  
Measurement of electrical properties, mass, pH, pressure, volume, and temperature are demonstrated along with examples of recording data, spectroscopy, and titration.

Quantitative Analysis
Steam and Superheated Steam  
When a gas burner heats the steam coil strongly, the steam becomes superheated and is at a high enough temperature to ignite a match and react quickly with steel wool

Steam and Superheated Steam  
Water is boiled and the steam is collected and run through a coil of copper tubing. When a gas burner heats the steam coil strongly, the steam becomes superheated and is at a high enough temperature to ignite a match and react quickly with steel wool.

Light as a Particle: Photoelectric Effect  
The discovery of the temperature dependence of the spectrum of an incandescent light source and the discovery of the photoelectric effect led to the characterization of the particle-like properties of light. Here we demonstrate these two phenomena.
Quantum Chemistry
Boiling by Cooling  
A flask contains water and water vapor at 100C. Each time ice water is poured over the outside of the flask, the water inside the flask boils. Although the temperature of the water in the flask has decreased, in each instance boiling is observed.

Superconductivity  
A pellet of 1-2-3 yttrium barium copper oxide (YBa2Cu3O7-x) is cooled with liquid nitrogen. A magnet placed above the pellet is levitated. At a higher temperature the magnet rests on the pellet, but cooling once again causes the magnet to rise. The levitated magnet is spun with plastic tweezers

Superconductivity
Iodine Clock Reaction  
A solution of hydrogen peroxide and sulfuric acid is added to a solution containing iodide ion, thiosulfate ion, and starch. After some time the dark blue color of a triiodide-starch complex is observed. The influences of initial reactant concentrations on the reaction time are examined, as are the influence of volume and temperature.

Discovery Videos  Lyubov Hoffman Laroche, Gary Wulfsberg, Barbara Young
The use of digital video for instruction has many advantages. In many situations the only way to present some chemical phenomena is through the use of video. The two video lessons presented here are examples intended to supplement our article in the August 2003 issue of JCE.

Denaturation of Protein by Strong Acid  John W. Moore, Jerrold J. Jacobsen, Gary Trammell, Kristin Johnson
"Strong acid denatures egg white proteins.This video contains voiceover:""The tertiary structure of egg white proteins is held together by hydrogen bonding and hydrophobic interactions. Adding strong acid to the protein disrupts the intermolecular forces, and the tertiary structure is lost. The loss in protein structure is called denaturation. The proteins precipitate, forming a white solid."""

Which Is Hot  John W. Moore, Jerrold J. Jacobsen, Lois M. Browne, John F. Zimmerman
"Two identical test tubes are shown; one is hot, and one is not. This video contains voiceover: Hot glass looks just like cold glass but it can cause severe burns. Be Careful!"
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.

Chemistry Comes Alive!  John W. Moore, Jerrold J. Jacobsen
Chemistry truly does come to life through this collection of pictures, animations, and movies depicting chemical reactions and techniques. The Chemistry Comes Alive! collection includes hundreds of high quality QuickTime movies and thousands of still pictures.
ChemPages Laboratory Resources  John W. Moore, Jerrold J. Jacobsen, Joe L. March
The Laboratory Resources are a set of web pages that include text, images, video, and self check questions. The topics included are those that are commonly encountered in the first-year chemistry laboratory. They have been put together for use as both a pre-laboratory preparation tool and an in-laboratory reference source.
