Substrate concentration basically means the amount used for the substrate. The substrate in our experiment was 0.1% hydrogen peroxide. The 0.1% is the concentration amount. Just like temperature and pH, substrate concentration can speed the reaction only up to a certain limit. When we mixed pH 3 enzyme tube with substrate tube, we used 0.3 mL of hydrogen peroxide, but if we were to increase the amount, then the experiment would have been faster.
TLC was used to identify the actual unknown product as well as other products/reactants present in the filtered solution. The procedure was conducted by placing a TLC plate in a developing chamber that is filled with a small amount of solvent. The solvent cannot be too polar because it will cause spotted compounds on the TLC plate to rise up too fast, while a very non-polar solvent will not allow the spots to move. The polarity of the spots also determines how far it moves on the plate; non-polar spots are higher than polar ones. After spots on the TLC form, the Rf values are calculated and used to analyze the similarity of the compounds.
Introduction:- In organic chemistry the substitution reactions is the most important reactions, especially Nucleophilic aromatic substitution reactions where nucleophile attacks positive charge or partially positive charge As it does so, it replaces a weaker nucleophile which then becomes a leaving group. The remaining positive or partially positive atom becomes an electrophile. The general form of the reaction is: Nuc: + R-LG → R-Nuc + LG: The electron pair (:) from the nucleophile (Nuc :) attacks the substrate (R-LG) forming a new covalent bond Nuc-R-LG. The prior state of charge is restored when the leaving group (LG) departs with an electron pair. The principal product in this case is R-Nuc.
Tertiary alkyl halides tend to give a mixture with both inverted and retained configurations at reaction centers. This is because this reaction proceeds through a stable carbocation intermediate and the carbon at the reaction center goes to sp2 hybridized state (planar geometry). The incoming nucleophile can attack from both sides of the plane and can give two products with retained and inverted configuration. If there is a partial interaction with the leaving group (nucleofuge) with carbocation there will be more product with inverted configuration and if there is no interaction with leaving group racemic mixture can be obtained. The rate of the reaction depends on the formation of a carbocation (which is the slow step) and there is one molecule
This aqueous solution was then heated until all the dichloromethane evaporated off. An error could have occurred at this point in the experiment if the hot plate was too hot. If the hot plate was set above the boiling point of the ketone, the ketone could have evaporated of along with the dichloromethane. This would result in a lower percent yield of the ketone. To prevent this from happening, the hot plate should not exceed 130˚C, so no matter what ketone was isolated, it would not evaporated off.
Since the solution became a dark red, the concentration of FeNCS2+ had increased. The darker solution means that the products are more favored at equilibrium which is called product favored and a lighter solution means that the reactants are more favored at equilibrium which is called reactant favored. When the group added more Fe(NO3)3 or NH4NCS to the second experiment, the system reacted by
This is because the the lower member is a very polar molecule therefore the very polar alcohol/carboxylic acid would react with the very polar water molecules. In this experiment, 1-butanol is slightly soluble in water but ethanoic acid is very soluble in water. The reason why the higher members which is 1-butanol in this case have non-polar and polar bond and they are only slightly soluble in water is because the non-polar 1-butanol is dominant to the very polar water molecule, hence making it a non-polar
Comparatively, Halothane will increase CBF. Theoretically due to the known drawbacks of N2O increases ICP, especially when it is used in conjunction with volatile agents, and it can inactivate Vitamin B-12 in prolonged use. air was use instead of N2O. Clinically, both Enflurane and Isoflurane have weaker cerebrovasodilatory actions than Halothane, but Isoflurane is preferred because of Enflurane’s potential adverse proconvulsant action and adverse effects on CSF dynamics. Hyperventilation attenuates or prevents the cerebral blood flow, enhancing effects of potent inhalation anaesthetics.
Hypothesis If three beakers are filled with sodium thiosulfate and differing concentration levels of hydrochloric acid then, the rate of reaction will occur quicker using a higher concentration of hydrochloric acid. This is because an increased concentration means there are more reactants which leads to more successful collisions in a set time period. Therefore, reactants with a higher concentration will have a faster rate of reaction and the cross will disappear
Production of powerful oxidant, peroxynitrite (ONOO–) is considered as ‘reactive nitrogen species’ (RNS). Further this may further produce other reactive species similar to hydroxyl radical (•OH) however not always interaction between superoxide radical (•O2–) and nitric oxide (NO•) results in biologically harmful effect. During many enzymatic reaction, SOD-catalysed dismutation form O2 and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) or it is formed by spontaneously reduction of two molecules of (•O2–). Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) & superoxide radical (•O2–) enters into the cells in the same way as H2O enters. In the presence of transition metal ions like low molecular mass iron or copper,
