What fun is it when you have a laboratory full of different things you can combine to see what happens! It’s even better when you have a professor around to encourage such shenanigans, then offer some questions to explore and ideas for possible explanations. That’s what’s happening here as they add a bar of lithium to a beaker of 7UP. Why? Because 7UP originally had lithium salts in its recipe.
We wouldn't bother showing you what happened if it weren't interesting. The University of Nottingham School of Chemistry brings us another Periodic Video with Sir Martyn Poliakoff. -via Viral Viral Videos
