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.

  1. Hi. You used to have multiplication table song videos. My daughter loved them. I am unable to find them anywhere on youtube. Could you please let me know if you still have those videos and would mind sharing them? Now its turn for my son to learn his multiplications…
