This experiment shows the position of iron in the 

The reaction between aluminium and 

This experiment involves the synthesis of a 

In this demonstration experiment, aluminium reacts with each of three 

The aim of this experiment is to help establish the idea that the soluble oxides of metals are

The position of carbon in the 

Oxygen is bubbled through solutions of potassium sulfide, chloride, bromide and iodide to establish which non-metallic elements are displaced from their compounds by oxygen. Then chlorine water is added to the same solutions to establish which elements are displaced by chlorine. Finally the class can decide to which solutions bromine water should be added to complete this displacement series for

In this demonstration experiment, iron wool is heated in the presence of 

In this experiment chlorine gas is generated on a 

This activity compares the colours of three halogens in aqueous solution and in a non-polar solvent. These halogens also react to a small extent with water, forming acidic solutions with bleaching properties.
