Cool compounds
 
I'm doing a science project on compounds and I'm trying to think of a cool but not obvious compound. Any suggestions?

note: Not C02

Polyvinyl. Quite an interesting yet fairly simple compound. If you can get your hands on the precursors (not sure if you can raid a school for it) you can even make some yourself really easily.

Ooh thats a good one!

An early (failed!) attempt at a synthetic rubber to replace latex during the war.

Sounds like its relatively easy to make too.

non newtonian fluid. http://www.instructables.com/id/Oobleck/

iirc it's a mixture, not a solution, so it's probably fit for a "compound"

CaC2- Calcium Carbide (miner's carbide)

When it gets wet it creates acetylene gas. I use it to blacken my sights for high power.

heinous - I beat you to the punch . . . silly putty is a non-newtonian fluid also

;)

and when struck firmly it shatters instead of splattering
