We swapped out our dropper bottles for 0.002M solutions. Precipitation pracs are next week so I'll report back if they work.

We did an early trial to make sure it worked, and there was indeed a bright, immediate reaction between potassium iodide 0.1M and lead nitrate 0.002M. Perfectly viable in my view. :)

I've offered the more dilute form to teachers and they seemed a bit unimpressed, without even trying it out! Occasionally, one will do it as a demo but not often. I'm happy, because regardless of what the students get to use, I have to handle the solid. I haven't had to make up new solution in years.

If you get a reaction and change with the more dilute solution...I'd just put it out and not say anything to the teachers in future. If anyone gets agro...just plead the safety line :)

Ha - they don't get agro, more just disappointed - kind of like if I'd told them the college has banned cake. :?
