My Saturday Office Hours (Tomorrow, October 17, 10am-12pm) will be in my office, 228 Cogswell, because of the open house event. Please go in the front door of Cogswell (it will be open) to enter the building. If there are more people at office hours than I have chairs in my office, we will move around the corner to a conference room on the same floor and I will leave a note on my office door. Regular Saturday office hours (10am- 12pm, DCC 330) will resume on Saturday October 24.

We saw in Chapter 6 that some reactions release energy in the form of heat – we will see in Chapter 7 that some reactions release energy in the form of light. When luminol is oxidized in the presence of a metal catalyst (in this case Cu 2+ ) it emits light. Luminol is used to detect blood at a crime scene that has been “cleaned up” – the iron in the hemoglobin of blood serves as the metal catalyst in the luminol oxidation reaction. http://www.life.uiuc.edu/biochem/FSL/about.htm
