Green flame, some pyrotechnic experiments


Recommended Posts

Contains:

-Boric acid + ethanol antifreeze burned, a fairly nice green flame but I've seen it done better on some videos. Any suggestions?

-An awesome line by the demoman class from Team Fortress 2. :)

-Lots of commercial fireworks (that really suck in Finland btw) dumped in an old milk container thing. Not very scientific but quite awesome.

-Varying amounts of flash powder in various containers.

-A 3kg Fe2O3/Al thermite in a zinc bucket that I couldn't capture in it's entirety since it ignited when the camera was off. :(

-MacGyver.

I made some nice green flames a while back with copper oxide and methanol....

I was supposed to try boric acid + methanol but then realized I don't have any methanol, it's actually pretty hard to come by these days. Even denaturing is done mainly with methyl ethyl ketone.
