SOP: Demonstrating the flame test using a PET bottle

This downloadable ASSIST Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) is for the setting up and demonstration of the flame test using a PET bottle as a demonstration rig.

This is a safe, simple and effective method to demonstrate the specific emission spectrum of a variety of cations.

The external link for this resource is to a video demonstrating the proper procedure for the activity.

The accompanying example risk assessment should be used as a guide only, and users should consider risks and safety measures in their local environment before proceeding.
