1 “substrate” and another “ enzyme.” Instead of using the distilled water, this time you are going to use different pH buffer in the enzyme test tube. In the substrate tube, add 7 mL of distilled water, 0.3 mL of hydrogen peroxide, and 0.2 mL of guaiacol for a total volume of 7.5 mL. For the enzyme tube, instead of distilled water add the pH solution (3) and 1.5 mL of peroxidase which equals a total volume of 7.5 mL. Use the dH2O syringe for our pH solution. To clean the syringe, flush it by drawing 6 mL of distilled water.
However, the enzyme will only deteriorate if there is a high concentration of sodium chloride and not if S3odium chloride is simply present. Therefore, by increasing the sodium chloride concentrations it is expected that the rate of change in absorbance, and therefore rate of reaction of amylase, will decrease exponentially as illustrated in the graph
What will happen if the temperatures are not right on the day we investigate the investigation? 7. Will the temperature effect the pH Scale? Hypothesis: The hypothesis of this experiment is that the rate of reaction will increases well as the hydrogen peroxide concentration. If the temperature, pH and enzyme concentration is kept constant then the rate of reaction will start to decrease as well as the hydrogen peroxide concentration.
Literature review Research question is how different temperatures affect the catalase enzyme. What is an enzyme? Enzymes are macromolecular biological catalysts. Enzymes speed up chemical reactions. Substrates are molecules that enzymes could act upon and the enzyme converts the substrates into different molecules known as products.
The goal of the experiment is to synthesize a bromohexane compound from 1-hexene and HBr(aq) under reflux conditions and use the silver nitrate and sodium iodide tests to determine if the product is a primary or secondary hydrocarbon. The heterogeneous reaction mixture contains 1-hexene, 48% HBr(aq), and tetrabutylammonium bromide and was heated to under reflux conditions. Heating under reflux means that the reaction mixture is heated at its boiling point so that the reaction can proceed at a faster rate. The attached reflux condenser allows volatile substances to return to the reaction flask so that no material is lost. Since alkenes are immiscible with concentrated HBr, tetrabutylammonium bromide is used as a phase-transfer catalyst.

According to the collision theory, a reaction can only occur if particles collide with sufficient energy to overcome the activation energy and with correct geometrical orientation (3). Increasing temperature increases the kinetic energy of the particles which means that an increase in temperature will increase the speed of the hydrogen peroxide and the catalase molecules which

The activity of an enzyme is affected by its environmental factors, and any change results in an alteration in the rate of the reaction caused by the enzyme (2). Naturally, the enzymes are adjusted by producing optimum rates of reaction or they adapt to function well in extreme conditions (2). Temperature, pH, and enzyme and substrate concentration all affect enzyme activity. The rate of reaction of an enzyme catalyzed reaction is affected by the difference in enzyme and substrate concentration. Increasing substrate and enzyme concentration will increase the rate of the reaction because more substrate molecules will be colliding with enzyme molecules, resulting in products being formed (1).
It measures the flow of heat in the phase transitions. It is used widely in most of the industry include foods, agriculture and etc. If the samples tested undergoes endothermic process which absorb energy, the temperature of the sample pan will decrease, so more amount of heat is required to ensure the temperature to reach equilibrium. This extra amount of heat is same as the amount of heart absorbed in endothermic process (Figura and Teixeira, 2007). (Slideshare.net, 2016) The peak is associated with the onset temperature, which the substances starts to melt.
