Description of Lecture
Nobel Laureate Linus Pauling studied chemical bonds, using accurate caloric information on heat generated in different reactions. He devised a formula which developed a single number for each element (called electronegativity) which he used as a predictor for a wide variety of chemical phenomena. This lecture/demonstration will present several rapid and spectacular oxidations, with comments. Positively no mathematics required. Cedric Stratton Dept of Chemistry and Physics
