Vitamin C titration is needed to perform this task in addition to standardizing of Iodine solution. This titration method is a redox reaction with potassium iodate in the presence of potassium iodide (Helmenstine, n.d.). The end point of the titration can be understood by the color change during titration. In this experiment, the addition of iodine to vitamin C in acidic solution with the presence of starch was stopped once color of solution started to change dark purple color from colorless
The temperature of the water was then recorded to the nearest 0.1⁰C. Then the melting points of phenylacetic acid, o-anisic acid, and benzilic acid were determined by the use of a Mel-Temp. The unknown sample was obtained from the chemical stockroom. A small scale of crystals from unknown was placed in a test tube with the following solvents: cyclohexane, hexane, toluene, diethyl ether, ethyl acetate, isopropyl alcohol, methanol, or water, to determine the appropriate solvent for the unknown. If the solute was wholly dissolved in the solvent before heating, it was recorded as a bad solvent.
For Fehling Test, the presence of aldehydes is detected by reduction of the deep blue solution of copper(II) to a red precipitate of insoluble copper oxide. The test is commonly used for reducing sugars but is known to be NOT specific for aldehydes. A positive test is indicated by a green suspension and a red precipitate. Benedict
Write this down when you start the titration. Next, you must determine the volume of the solution delivered to reach the equivalence point. Next, you will find the moles of base used in the titration: *Note that the volume of base is in L, not in mL Determine number of moles of HCl in flask: If you write the balanced reaction for the neutralization of sodium hydroxide and hydrochloric acid, you will see that the reaction proceeds in a 1:1 fashion. That is, for every hydroxide (OH‐) ion added, it can neutralize exactly one hydronium (H+) ion. This is not always the case for neutralization reactions, and is thus not always the case for acid‐base titrations.
3.2.1 Ferric Chloride Test The sample extraction will be dissolved in 2 ml ethanol. A few drops of 10% ferric chloride solution will be added in test tube F. A green-blue coloration indicates the presence of a phenolic hydroxyl group (Bhatt et. al., 2011) 3.2.2 Sodium Hydroxide Test Few drops of 10% aqueous sodium hydroxide solution will be added in a test tube E with 2-3 ml of the extract. Formation of intense yellow color that became colorless on the addition of few drops of diluted HCl indicates the presence of flavonoids (Bello et. al.,
This causes the indicator to change colour due to the colour difference from the undissociate molecules. Strong acids and strong bases are strong electrolytes and are assumed to ionize completely in the presence of water. Weak acids however, only ionize to a limited extend in water. Any weak or strong acids when in contact with any weak or strong alkali will start to undergo neutralization regardless of their volume. When an indicator which is present in the acid-base mixture and have experienced colour change, it indicates that the mixture is in right proportions to neutralize each other and is also known as the equivalence point.
Hence, a calcium chloride and cotton were filled inside a drying tube. The condenser was wrapped with parafilm and a paper towel to avoid moistures from entering. The reagent will act as nucleophilic addition to acetone and work up with hydrochloride acid to synthesize 2-methylhexanol. Throughout this process, the solution turns dark grey and develop white precipitates. This step indicate that Grignard reagent was generated, and the extra white precipitates were magnesium.
For example a simple resolution for the enantiomers of trans-1,2-cyclohexanediol by diastereomeric complex formation with tartaric acid and subsequent supercritical fluid extraction is developed. (7) Solid-phase Extraction (SPE) Principle SPE is a selective extraction technique where the compounds of interest are partitioned between a sorbent phase and a sample liquid in a cartridge, where these compounds must have greater affinity for the sorbent phase than for the sample liquid. The choice of sorbents depends on the interaction of compounds of interest and the chosen sorbent through the functional groups of the compounds. Typically, sorbents used in SPE consists of 40μm diameter silica gel with approximately 60 Aº pore diameters. The steps in SPE is described in
The technique utilized in this experiment was titration and is used to determine the concentration of an unknown solution by reaction with a known concentration of solution. In a titration, the titrant is placed into the burette and the analyte poured into the conical flask using a pipette. Titration involves adding a small amount of titrant slowly to the analyte to achieve the equivalence point. The equivalence point is when the moles of standard soluton are same as the solution of unknown concentration and is produced at a pH of 7. The indicator used in this experiment was Phenolphthalein which determined the end point, which was shown as a form of colour change.
