Four Chemical Ways To Make Fire Without Matches

Hello everyone. Today we will consider reactions of making fire without matches.
Please note that this video was made solely for demonstration purposes! Do not attempt to repeat the experiments shown in this video!
The first reaction, which is already known to many people, is the reaction of potassium permanganate and glycerin.
Let’s pour the potassium permanganate. Now make a small indentation for the glycerol and afterwards add glycerol.
Since my potassium permanganate is not ground the reaction requires a lot of time. To accelerate the reaction add a few drops of water.
Glycerol reacts with potassium permanganate, contributing to its decomposition. The reaction increases by the generated heat.
Now the next reaction. We place a mixture of potassium chlorate and sugar in a ratio of 2 to 1. All components were thoroughly ground.
To start the reaction, sulfuric acid was added dropwise.
Now the third reaction. I moisten a piece of cloth with acetone to make it more flammable.
Let’s put a concentrated sulfuric acid into a pipette and then sink it in a potassium permanganate to take a few crystals. Prepare a droplet and drip onto the napkin.
Sulfuric acid reacts with the potassium permanganate forming manganese oxide 7 which ignites acetone.
And the last reaction. Pour a mixture, which consist of four grams of ammonium nitrate and one gram of sodium chloride, i.e. table salt.
All components were thoroughly ground. Add ten grams of zinc powder to this mixture.
Next, mix the components. To start the reaction, add a few drops of water.
The addition of water facilitates the interaction of zinc with ammonium nitrate. Sodium chloride is used as an ion catalyst. Facebook:
