Chemical analysis for a high school lab?
Posted 14 December 2012 - 07:47 AM
I wanted to do some "citizen science" combining a pretty well equiped lab and some pretty motivated high school students.
But what to do?
...we have reagents but little apparatus for analytical chemistry?
Is there a way to detect caffeine withouth a HPLC? Paper chromatography?
Can we measure water quality?
What would you do?

how well equipped is the lab? what instrumentation? supplies? chemicals? silica and glass plates or slides (you can pour your own tlc plates like we did when i was in school)?
talent does what it can
genius does what it must
i used to do what i got paid to do
