Easy-to-Make Cryophoruses
Battino, Rubin; Letcher, Trevor M.
Journal of Chemical Education, v85 n4 p561-564 Apr 2008
The cryophorus dramatically demonstrates the cooling effect of evaporation. This article describes some simple and easy-to-make cryophoruses, ideal for demonstrating evaporative cooling to students at all levels. The most dramatic effects occurred with cyclohexane and benzene, with water generally freezing more slowly. (Contains 4 notes, 2 tables, and 2 figures.)
