    Question Chemistry Project help

    My son is doing a HS chemistry project based on Chlorine testing of pool water. Must have been all the yelling about stabilized chlorine

    Question - Does anyone have the actual chemical makeup of the standard test kit reagents handy?

    Assuming no top secret info would be released, what is:

    R-0600, R-0014, R-870, R-871, R-0003 and R-0013

    Any info would be appreciated.

    Thanks, Mike.

    Do a search for any chem geek post. I am willing to bet he has written about this before.

    Hello Kimkats-

    No luck so far....

    This thread:
    Pool Water Chemistry

    goes over the chemistry in detail, but I can't find anything where the kit reagents are identified.

    Thanks, Mike.

    It's not likely all that flammable. The warning comes from the isopropanol content (~20-25%). I don't believe the other components are very flammable.
