Ukrainian scientist deconstructs aluminium can

A Ukrainian scientist shows the layers of an aluminium can as they deconstruct the beverage in a sodium hydroxide solution.

The reaction reveals that within the can there is a plastic film that is untouched by the solution where the juice still remains.

The filmer explained: "Using an example of a can with Fanta, scientists cleaned the varnish and placed it in a solution of sodium hydroxide, after which the aluminium dissolved and a transparent protective film remained."

The experiment took place on May 23.
