Celebrating Chemistry Week with a bang
October 26, 2018
Above, Tony Layson, Ph.D., associate professor of chemistry, uses a chemical reaction to produce acetylene gas, causing a carved pumpkin to burst into flames. The activity, held Oct. 25, was part of events held throughout the week by Trine University’s American Chemical Society (ACS) chapter to celebrate National Chemistry Week, which is Oct. 21-27. Events included using a chemical reaction to make stress balls, decorating cupcakes with symbols from the periodic table, and using liquid nitrogen to make ice cream.
