This question already has an answer here:
The experiment is described in the following link: http://www.sciencekids.co.nz/experiments/invisibleink.html
I carried out a small research but I was unable to find what exactly happens. In other words which particular acids, present in lemon juice, are oxidized (e.g. citric acid, malic acid etc.)? And what causes the brownish colour?
Any kind of help would be appreciated.
