Copper + Nitric Acid…….

This is real mad scientist stuff. We’ve all seen copper oxidize over time—the Statue of Liberty is a perfect example—but have you seen what happens when you speed up the process? To do so, you can just drop a piece of copper into concentrated nitric acid. The copper immediately oxidizes, creating a green solution, as the nitric acid becomes nitrogen dioxide, a poisonous brown gas. Pour a bit of water in there and the nitrogen dioxide becomes nitrogen oxide, turning the solution a bright blue. Science!
