Light induced substitution of Bromine on hexane

Hello.

I need new light bulbs that will work for this experiment. Has anyone tried non-incandescent bulbs and what would your recommendations be?

Thank you.

Morning all,

Regarding this experiment, what molarity of bromine water works well?
(My notes say to use neat bromine, but I'm hoping to reduce the risk..)

Thanks

We use it neat - if you dilute it, you get a different reaction.
 
We also use it neat, I do the dispensing. I barely trust myself with Bromine, let alone a teacher!
