Title: Slime Away: Cross-Linking Poly (Vinyl Alcohol) with Sodium Borate
Url: http://matse1.matse.illinois.edu/polymers/e.html
Publisher: University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Dept. of Materials Science and Engineering
Description: The Materials Science and Technology Teacher's Workshop (MAST) provides this lesson plan for students learning about polymers. The module will "explore the change in physical properties of a polymer as a result of cross-linking. The result of adding more cross-linking agents to a polymer is considered and another model of cross-linking is viewed."

A step by step laboratory procedure is provided. Discussion questions, teacher notes and a link to a video clip are also included.
