Designing a Greener Le Châtelier’s Principle Lab

Lead Teacher, Cassidy Javner, is featured in the March issue of AACT for her piece on Designing a Greener Le Châtelier’s Principle Lab. This article discusses the importance of green chemistry and features a safer replacement to traditional Le Châtelier’s Principle labs, which often use hazardous chemicals that pose a risk to students and the environment. The concepts of Le Châtelier’s Principle can be effectively demonstrated using household materials of starch, iodine, butterfly pea tea, vinegar, and baking soda, see the lesson plan here.
