* In the above RB, a calculated amount of 1.2 equivalent amount of PTSH was added during continous stirring. * To the RB a condenser was attached and it was put on refluxing for a time period of 18 hours at a temperature of 80 degrees in an oil bath. * Post refluxing, the condenser was removed and it was left undisturbed for 1 day and then cooled to a temperature of -20 degrees by keeping in the freezer for setting of hydrazone crystals. * Once the crystals were formed, the supernatant was decanted and the crystals were transferred to a beaker where they were washed with cold methanol and then dried. * These dried hydrazone crystals were used in the subsequent steps.
5 mL of 3M sodium hydroxide, 5 mL of de-ionized water, and 15 mL of hexane were added to the reaction flask and stirred. The mixture was transferred to a separatory funnel, separated into an organic layer and water layer, and then drained. The water layer was washed twice with 10 mL of hexane. The organic layer was dried
Abstract In this experiment, the reaction kinetics of the hydrolysis of t-butyl chloride, (CH3)3CCl, was studied. The experiment was to determine the rate constant of the reaction, as well as the effects of solvent composition on the rate of reaction. A 50/50 V/V isopropanol/water solvent mixture was prepared and 1cm3 of (CH3)3CCl was added. At specific instances, aliquots of the reaction mixture were withdrawn and quenched with acetone. In addition, phenolphthalein was added as an indicator.
The experiment began by setting up the LabQuest and preparing a 2M solution of HCl and a 2M solution of NaOH. This was called “Part A”. Two general rules were noted throughout the experiment: add acid to water and pour stock solution into beaker before graduated cylinder. This prevented flash-boiling of the solution, chemical burns, and spills. To make the 2M HCl solution, 200mL deionized water was added to a 600mL beaker labelled “2M HCl” by using a graduated cylinder.
Estimation of superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity 246 SOD activity was estimated by its ability to catalyse NBT to formazan at 560nm 247 according to the method of Beyer and Fridovich (40). Five ml of reaction mixture 248 containing 50 mm phosphate buffer (pH 7.8), 13 mm methionine, 75 mm NBT, 2 mm 249 riboflavin, 0.1 mm EDTA and the enzyme extract. Absorbance of sample was read at 560 250 nm. The difference of percentage reduction of colour development in blank and the 251 sample was calculated. Fifty percent reduction in the colour was taken as one unit of 252 enzyme activity and was expressed in enzyme units per milligram protein (U mg-1 253 protein).
Once AMD reached the coveted pH level, it was filtered using filter paper (0.45 μm) to obtain the precipitate. The filtrates were then measured for the EC level using conductivity meter, TDS level using TDS meter, and concentration of Cu2+ using PerkinElmer Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy (AAS) Analyst 400. All analyses were conducted in Analytical Chemistry Laboratory, University of Mataram. Filtrates (with several pH levels) found to still contain Cu2+, would be treated to the sulfidization treatment. Sulfidization treatment using SNW from Sebau This experiment was conducted by adding pure SNW from three sampling points (T1, T2, and T3) to the AMD with three different pH levels in 1:1 ratio reaction.
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.
The 10.00 mL graduated cylinder was refilled with deionized water and was poured into the same 500 mL plastic bottle. Using a 50 mL graduated cylinder, the remaining 480.0 mL of deionized water was added to the 500 mL plastic bottle. The lid was secured over the bottle and the contents were then shaken thoroughly. A piece of tape was placed onto the bottle with the groups names, and space for the concentration of NaOH and standard deviation to be written at the end of the experiment. After 0.1 M NaOH solution was prepared, the next step is to standardize the NaOH solution by using titration.
Wash ether layer with saturated sodium chloride solution and retain ether layer. In a small 125ml Erlenmeyer flask, dry the ether solution over anhydrous calcium chloride. Add sufficient calcium chloride so that it no longer clumps to pellets added earlier on the bottom of the flask. Remove the solvent using a rotary evaporator and weigh product. Results 1 mole of benzoic acid (C6H5COOH = 122.12grams) reacts with 1 mole of methanol (CH3OH = 32grams/mole) to produce 1 mole of methyl benzoate (C6H5COOCH3 = 136.15grams) and 1 mole of water.
SDS-Polyacrylamide gels were prepared and the glass plates were washed with 70% ethanol and water. After drying the plates, water was used for test leakages. Two SDS-Polyacrylamide gels were prepared according to the following recipe. These all above components of the running gel were added in a 50 ml tube and solutions were mixed and pipetted into the prepared gel chambers. Glass plates were filled ¾ and the gel was covered with 100-500 µl Isopropanol in order to achieve an even surface.
