The flame test is an analytical technique often used for the identification of certain elements, primarily metal ions. The color of the flame is observed, and the spectra of light emitted from the flame is viewed through a spectroscope. The traditional flame test poses safety concerns for students in a laboratory setting, however, this kit minimizes these concerns by utilizing small candles that are easier to manage. There is no loss in the clarity of the emission spectra, making it easy for students to observe and deduce what element is causing the colored flame. Kit contains an Instruction Manual and enough materials for 2 groups of students.
