dc.description.abstract This project aims to celebrate both the Chemistry Lyceum and the Keene State College Pride student organizations by producing a 'chemical rainbow' composed of acid-base indicators. The chemical rainbow will be designed by using a series of colorful chromophores that result in different colors when mixed with dilute acids and bases. The historical significance and symbolism of the rainbow image in the Pride community and the history and use of chemical indicators will be presented. Chemical structures, names, and absorbance spectra will be displayed for each indicator. A portable spectrophotometer will accompany the poster and allow analysis of indicators by conference attendees. Unique glassware will be used to highlight various techniques in the chemistry laboratory and bring attention to the diversity of equipment within the chemical sciences. The poster will also feature background on each of the student clubs, and the preparation and procedures used to produce the chemical rainbow display.
