<p>Thank you for sharing this!</p><p><br>Is there any way you could post the chemical reactions going on here as well?<br><br>(This is a very quick explanation and process, and I really appreciate it. I am inferring that the Carbon from Sodium Bicarbonate (NaHCO3) is reacting with Oxygen in the Vinegar (CH3COOH), to form Carbon Dioxide (CO2). However I am curious, what is the substance left in the vial!?!?)</p>
