Boiling chips better known as boiling stones or anti-bumping granules basically are minute, unevenly shaped stones added to liquids so that they can boil easily.

They offer nucleation sites so that the fluids can boil quickly without turning superheated. Without boiling chips, a liquid which is heated in a horizontal container might become superheated and "bump' all of a sudden, and occasionally discharges vapour. This sudden discharge of gas might result in the solution as well as the reagents to be spilled out of the container all of a sudden.

Boiling chips generally are made from absorbent matter like alumina, calcium carbonate or carbon, and normally come with non-reactive glaze of Teflon, which makes sure that the boiling chips will offer effective nucleation spots.

The boiling chips help heat up the solution quicker to create vapors to rise quicker and in conclusion allows the distillation process run quicker, opposed to not having the boiling chips present during distillation.
