Molecules & Energy Class Presents the “Egyptian Midnight Reaction”

On Tuesday Jan 31, 2023, at 7 pm in the Wachsman Concert Hall, our Molecules and Energy class will be giving a talk on the “Egyptian Midnight reaction,” a chemical reaction where a colorless solution suddenly turns into a deep purple. Our talk will share our experimental results in the lab and cover topics such as reaction rates and activation energy along the way.

Check out our video of the experiment as a preview!
