Like and share our successful experiment.
Thank you, and see yah in the next one.

<p>why does it do that/</p>
Cool! How long does it glow for?
cool! if you put more detergent in the coke, what will happen? Can the whole bottle turn blue?
<p>So does this work with any detergent or a specific type of detergent?</p>
<p>What is going on chemically? Anyone?</p>
<p>To be honest, I don't know what the Coke is doing besides precipitating the photo luminescent component out into a powdery substance. We used to take liquid laundry detergent and write on the walls in college. It glows under black light or no light (after some exposure to regular light). I would bet the gel will glow in the dark without the help of Coke.</p><p>BTW, if you're going to try writing on your walls, be sure the detergent is clear. We tried doing this under black light without first looking at the detergent. After a few hours' work, we turned the regular lights on to discover it was, in fact, blue...</p>
<p>lol - it reminds me that quinine glows under black light. You never know what is mixed in coke (unlike the detergent - which sound strange enogh though).</p>
<p>Just look on the ingredients shown in step 2. All kinds of wizardry may happen with that.</p><p>I don't know if it's still the case, but in the past detergent for laundry had some stuff that converts UV light into visible light, thus making white appearing even more white. </p><p>When I was a boy and mixed any chemical I could find I always wanted such things to happen xD</p>
<p>Right. I was interested more in an explanation of what chemical reactions were producing which effects, not just a list of chemicals.</p><p>So, now you are an adult and mixing any chemical you can find? :)</p>
<p>Not really ;-) But this guy obviously did. I think that even if you know the chemical reaction, it's hard to know what makes the glow effect. There's a substance called luciferine which glow worms use to make light. Maybe that's been produced? But honestly, I have no idea.</p>
<p>It's luciferase--an enzyme that converts chemical bond energy into light: bioluminescence. The big difference between fluorescence, which is what's occurring here and (chemi)luminescence is the source of the energy. In fluorescence, a shorter wavelength of light is absorbed and some energy is re-emitted at a longer wavelength (eg., UV light from a blacklight giving rise to blue light). With luminescence, chemical energy gives rise to the photons. This is the same process by which glowsticks work, although they use hydrogen peroxide and a chemical called luminol to provide the light.</p>
<p>Good to know there's someone with a background :-) My chemical background is mostly from science shows (I'm an IT guy else). IIRC the reaction in the glow worms is started by two molecules: luciferine and luciferase which start the chemo-luminescent reaction similar to the glow sticks which also mix two different &quot;things&quot;.</p>
<p>I admire your adventurousness and generosity in sharing the results. Thanks.</p>
yes wow just wow. The chemistry behind this is gonna be complex. No one can just give the answer on the spot
<p>wow just wow</p>
cool man cool
Oh! Never mind! I looked closer at the container! Laundry! Sorry! Thanks!!!
Is it dish or laundry detergent. I have both that look identical.
