Abstract. A simple yet challenging exercise that reviews many fundamental chemical concepts and laboratory techniques from first semester general chemistry is offered for use in the first laboratory period of the second semester general chemistry course. This exercise is easy to do and involves a minimal amount of equipment and reagents. Students at the author's school like this exercise because they get good results, yet feel challenged because they have to think for themselves.
