You Searched For: Boiling Stones
Boiling stones are unevenly-shaped substances that are added to liquids to stabilize. Chemically-inert, anti-bumping granules come in a variety of particle sizes. With a porous nature, boiling chips can successfully trap air in cavities to form solvent vapor bubbles continuously as long as the liquid remains at boiling point. Without the stones, liquids have a tendency to superheat then violently boil over. Boiling stones prevent intense reagent splattering, equipment damage, or the experiment being negatively impacted.
