The neutralization reaction between an acid and a base usually releases heat. With the help of a high-resolution thermal imaging technique, the team at Beauty of Science captured the dynamic “heat wave” generated when droplets of a hydrochloride acid solution and a sodium hydroxide solution merged with one another. To see the full video and more demonstrations using thermal cameras, visit www.envisioningchemistry.com/getting-hot
