How to grow Tin Crystals!

  • In this video we will be growing some tin crystals using a stannous chloride solution and some electrolysis.nnMusic by Kevin Macleod.

    I forgot the song though...nnStannous chloride: It was pointed out by KotMatvej that the solution doesn't actually boil, but it is electrolytic sides reactions which are producing gas.

    These are the two side reactions that he suggested:nn 2Cl- -- 2e = Cl2n 2H2O - 4e = 4H+ + O2nnThis was an oversight on my part and I am glad he was able to point this out!
