Analysis of Oxiclean: An Interesting Comparison of Percarbonate Stain Removers
Bracken, Jeffrey D.; Tietz, David
Journal of Chemical Education, v82 n5 p762 May 2005
The study focuses on percarbonate-based stain removers since the percarbonate can be heated to produce additional sodium carbonate. An experiment that provides general chemistry students an opportunity to apply their knowledge of basic stoichiometry to solve a relevant, real-world problem is described.
