Transcript of Glow in the Dark Chemistry

How is Chemistry involved in Making
Glow in the Dark There are four ways to make glow in the dark...
- Photoluminescence: the emission of light from a molecule or atom that has absorbed electromagnetic energy
- Bioluminescence: the light emitted by living organisms using an internal chemical reaction
- Chemiluminescence: the emission of light without the emission of heat as the result of a chemical reaction
- Radioluminescence- created by the bombardment of ionizing radiation

The main two ways to make glow in the dark products are Photoluminescence and Chemiluminescence. How is Glow in the Dark Used in Everyday Life? A few uses for glow in the dark products are...

- Make-up products such as nail polish and lip gloss
- Glow sticks
- Party Items (bracelets, rings, glasses, etc.)
- Powder
- Shoe laces By: Reid Gordon
Simran Hehar Without Chemistry, how Would it be Different to Make Glow in the Dark? We wouldn't be able to make the product at all. If we didn't have any knowledge about chemistry we wouldn't be able to complete the chemical reactions used to create the product. Also we would not know about phosphors. Phosphors are synthetic fluorescent or phosphorescent substances. These substances contain both luminescence and fluorescent attributes. Phosphors are most commonly known for their appearance in glow in the dark products. How Does Glow in the Dark effect the Economy? It effects the economy because glow in the dark products are very popular. There are about 15 million glow sticks sold each year. Since the average glow stick (16") sells for about $1.99 the product makes about $29,850,000 per year. Miscellaneous Information Glow in the dark is easy to make.
How to make glow in the dark products. One way to create glow in the dark objects is to replace and water in a substance with tonic water. Tonic water contains a chemical called quinine that always glows an oceanic blue color. However, when using tonic water you will have to have a black light to actually make the water glow. Some other experiments may need to have a black light.

Some examples of glow in the dark experiments include...
- glow in the dark powder
- glow in the dark slime
- glow in the dark jello
- glow in the dark mountain dew
