Make Glowing Water

It’s easy to make water glow very brightly under a black light. You can use the water as an ingredient in slime, crystals, or other projects to make them glow-in-the-dark.

    I am hoping you have an open scientific mind. I know gases and liquids can be separated with heat and pressure. What I am saying is everyone applies the heat to the liquid, and the liquid boils, extracting added chemical combinations. Gasoline has defragmentation to separate the chemicals. None of these processes can produce a change that I first produced to gasoline, some 30 years ago. Gasoline’s lowest boiling temperature is 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Ambient temperature would require it to be hotter than that, for gasoline to become a gas. I have created a white vapor from gasoline, not by applying the heat to the liquid, but applying the liquid to the heat, spraying a fine mist of liquid onto a preset temperature (600 degrees Fahrenheit). Yes heat transfer happens first, when I do this, but due to the fine mist droplets, the applied heat is assumed by the droplets, faster than the droplets can boil, and perform a change of state from a liquid to a gas. This means I can take the fine mist liquid droplets to any temperature above the liquid’s know boiling temperature. I have found the boiling temperatures of atoms inside the liquid. I created a white vapor from gasoline and got a non flammable liquid at the same time. The white vapor has twice the power that gasoline has, having tested it on 7 different vehicles, and 2 Dynamometers. I had one smog test and got zero parts per million hydrocarbon reading from the white vapor. I used clean dry rags held over the exhaust pipe running the 7 vehicles, and after several tests, running the white vapor, the rag smelled like freshly ironed clothes. 
    To further prove what I say I sprayed a fine mist of distilled water onto a heat source. The temperature is between 212 and 230 degrees Fahrenheit, where with a combustible gas leak detector I detect a flammable gas from the distilled water vapor.
    The same basic thing happens to snow when a large amount of heat is applied to the small snowflakes. The small snowflakes go from a solid matter to a gas, and by pass the liquid state, like I have done to liquid.
    See it happen on my You Tube Channel, Bill Kendrick. I have 3 videos, one on gasoline and two on distilled water. This can be done to any liquid. Yes it can only be separating atoms, or groups of atoms.

  2. Actually, the effect you see here is called fluorescence. It is due to a chemical component added in the highlighter ink called fluorescein. As with phosphorescence, which is a different process, releasing energy over a longer time period, as fluorescence releases its energy almost instantly (nanosecond timescale) compared to phosphorescence which can last hours. Both of these processes don't produce their own light, they require a source, as opposed to chemoluminescence, which does its own.

  3. wow its gud, now i will waste all my highlight pens to make a glowing water. umm 1 q wat if i use a pink or any other color higlight pen will it glow in that color

  4. i cannot stand people like you with no sense of humor whatsoever. Maybe if you were smart and knew context you would know that is was a joke and obviously everyone but you knew that. Don't ruin somebody's joke just because you cannot understand it.
