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 that is emitted from the flame is viewed through a spectroscope. Traditionally, this test poses safety concerns for students in a laboratory setting. This kit minimizes these concerns by utilizing small candles that are easier to manage in a lab setting. There is no loss in the clarity of the emission spectra from the candles, making it easy for students to observe and deduce what element is causing the colored flame. This kit contains enough material for 5 groups.
