Three Coloured Liquid

Imagine a drink that changes colour, or texture, or even flavour as you drink it!? The flavour one has already been done and unfortunately the reaction above, as amazing as it looks, is also quite poisonous although very easy to do. It will be a while still before we have drinks that change colour as we drink them.

The affect is called Briggs-Rauscher reaction and is a combination of 3 different solutions

1. Potassium Iodate, Sulfuric Acid, and Water

2. 30% Hydrogen peroxide solution

3. Malonic Acid, Manganese sulfate monohydrate, starch and water
