Chemo-enthusiasts, awaken. Identify the chemicals in the initial phase and create an incredible cosmos of eye-appealing reactions from them. Make your way to the final round by removing impurities from the liquid given to you. Brush up your constructive skills by making a filter. May the best creator win!
Phase 1 :
A tricky question in the form of puzzle or riddle on the property or applicability of the concerned chemical will be given and participants must answer it correctly.
Phase 2 :
Based on the chemical identified and the set of table reagents given, participants will have to perform a magical reaction. They will also have to explain the mechanism.
Mud or silt uniform water of known mechanism will be given and their filter will have to remove maximum mud or silt. Maximum five absorbent will be allowed.
Participants will make a filter in which a known solution of KMnO4 of known pH will be passed. Filter should bring down the concentration of KMnO4 and pH closest possible to 7.
Round 1: Answer of the question, Magical effect, Reaction Mechanism
Round 2: Concentration of Gradient, pH change (should be near to 7)
Round 3: Volume of Solution Obtained. Time Taken. Change in concentration and pH as compared to Round 2, Titration techniques.
Q1. How many participants per team?
Ans: Maximum of three.
Q2. Do all participants have to be from the same college?
Ans: No. The members of the team can be from different colleges.
Q3. Are there any prerequisites for participating in this event?
Ans: Just a basic knowledge on electronics will suffice for participating in the event.
No membranes allowed. Only five absorbents can be used.
