    Thanks davymid, one can learn interesting things here on IAB
    Wikipedia says:

    Tabletop volcanoes and thermal decomposition
    The volcano demonstration involves igniting a pile of the salt, which initiates the following exothermic conversion:
    (NH4)2Cr2O7 (s) → Cr2O3 (s) + N2 (g) + 4 H2O (g) (ΔH=−429.1 ± 3 kcal/mol)

    When I was a kid, Christmas indoor fireworks used to include something like this.

    Now, health and safety + the `I will sue you` brigade have made sure that nothing like this will be enjoyed by kids any more.
