Magic Sand  
The grains of Magic Sand have been specially treated in a way that greatly reduces the attraction of water molecules to their surfaces.

Floating Squares  
Graphite (from a pencil lead) is applied to one side of an index card and a piece of the card is immersed in a beaker containing hexane and water (two layers). The graphite-coated side always faces the hexane layer. When the two liquids are carbon tetrachloride and water the graphite-coated side always faces the carbon tetrachloride.

Stilling Waves with Ordered Molecular Monolayers  Ed Vitz
The amazing ability of a film of oil one molecule thick to dissipate the relatively large energy of water waves can be readily demonstrated, but an explanation of the effect has been elusive until recently.

Paper Cover Up  
In this activity, students cover some parts of white paper with wax. When painted with dark paint, the color does not stick to the waxed parts. This is like coatings used to protect teeth.

Stained Glass Glue  
In Stained Glass Glue, students place drops of food coloring on Elmer's glue and investigate what happens when they touch the surface with bit of detergent. Elmer's glue has water in it plus a much longer, more flexible chemical called polyvinyl acetate. These long flexible molecules are moving around in the water like intertwined strands of boiling spaghetti. When the food coloring drops are added, they are prevented from spreading out much by the combination of water and polyvinyl acetate molecules. When the detergent is added, detergent molecules help to break up this combination and allow the food coloring to flow more easily.

Magic Sand  
Magic Sand is a children's toy with interesting features. Magic sand is made from regular sand (silicon dioxide) that has been dyed and coated with tiny particles of pure silica, and exposed to a special chemical treatment making it hydrophobic. The coating on the,outside of the magic sand pushes the water away. Magic Sand placed in water comes out perfectly dry.

Intermolecular Forces (Netorials)  Rachel Bain, Mithra Biekmohamadi, Liana Lamont, Mike Miller, Rebecca Ottosen, John Todd, and David Shaw
Intermolecular Forces: this is a resource in the collection "Netorials". In this resource there is a review of Lewis structures, molecular geometry, electronegativity, or molecular polarity. After that, you can learn about the forces of attraction that exist between molecules. This module explores London forces and dipole-dipole forces (including hydrogen bonds). The Netorials cover selected topics in first-year chemistry including: Chemical Reactions, Stoichiometry, Thermodynamics, Intermolecular Forces, Acids & Bases, Biomolecules, and Electrochemistry.

Electrostatics Attraction (GCMP)  David M. Whisnant
Electrostatics Attraction: this is a resource in the collection "General Chemistry Multimedia Problems". In this problem we will correlate molecular polarity with the attraction of liquids to a charged rod. General Chemistry Multimedia Problems ask students questions about experiments they see presented using videos and images. The questions asked apply concepts from different parts of an introductory course, encouraging students to decompartmentalize the material.
