31 Oct Making Iron Bleed



On behalf of Mr Harry Shuttleworth  Teacher of Chemistry:


Halloween Chemistry

The Year 13 chemists learnt about transition metal chemistry with this ghoulish experiment.

In A2 Chemistry students study the properties of the transition metal elements. Iron (Fe) forms many different ‘complex’ ions; the most well known being haemoglobin in the blood.

In this experiment the students formed iron thiocyanate complex ions which have a deep red colour similar to blood!
