Ludwigshafen (ots) - If you glance at yourself in a looking glass and notice that you are beginning to look a little dull around the edges - or have maybe even developed black spots - there is a scientific reason for the phenomenon. A mirror can be robbed of its reflective power by the chemical reaction known as oxidation. In entertaining episodes our Chemical Reporter answers questions of our Podcast listeners on Chemistry in our everyday life.
