Glow sticks are the novelty items which are commonly seen in parties, night clubs, recreational events, and other celebrations. Glow sticks are made of plastic tubes that contain a glass vial. The plastic tubes contain two different chemicals which are separated by the glass vial. When you bend the plastic tube, the glass vial breaks and combines the two chemicals. A chemical reaction between them creates a glow and this is termed as chemiluminescence. Some fluorescent dyes are added in the tubes to give a colored glow.
