Elephant's Toothpaste Experiment | Oxidation Reaction | Science Experiments | Chemical Reaction



Hello welcome back to The Maverick Lab. Today I will show you a really cool chemical reaction – science experiment which is called “Elephant toothpaste”. Elephant toothpaste is a very easy and funny science experiment, which results in a rapid eruption of huge amount of foam.
Elephant’s toothpaste is a foamy substance caused by the rapid decomposition of hydrogen peroxide using potassium iodide or yeast and warm water as a catalyst. How rapidly the reaction proceeds will depend on the concentration of hydrogen peroxide.

Potassium permanganate:
Potassium permanganate is a chemical compound with chemical formula KMnO₄; specifically, a salt consisting of K⁺ and MnO⁻ ₄ ions. It is a purplish-black crystalline solid, that dissolves in water to give intensely pink or purple solutions.

Hydrogen Peroxide:
Hydrogen peroxide is a chemical compound with the formula H ₂O ₂. In its pure form, it is a very pale blue, clear liquid, slightly more viscous than water. Hydrogen peroxide is the simplest peroxide. It is used as an oxidizer, bleaching agent, and antiseptic.
