Decomposition of Aspirin Studied with UV/Visible Absorption Spectroscopy Aims: To determine the concentration of salicylic acid, formed from the hydrolysis of Aspirin, at regular intervals using the UV/Visible Absorption Spectroscopy From the concentration of salicylic acid, concentration of Aspirin to be determined using an equation Calculate the rate constant of this reaction and its order from a plot of graph of ln(aspirin) vs time Discuss the overall flaws and improvements to the experiment Results: As per schedule1, 0.212g of aspirin was added to 50 ml boiling water to form salicylic acid in a 100 ml flask, of which 1 ml was then pipetted to a 50 ml volumetric flask at the 5th min. Following an ice bath, the solution was mixed
This solution was diluted with diluents to gae a concentration of 0.1 mg/ml solution each of Amoxicillin trihydrate. The HPLC method was applied to the solutions and the results obtained were shown in table 4.6.11. System suitability solution: 25.0 µg/mL each of of USP Amoxicillin RS in Diluent. Precision
A total of 0.1 ml of supernatant was added to cuvette containing 1.9 ml of 50mM phosphate buffer (pH 7). The reaction was started by the addition of 1 ml freshly prepared 30mM H2O2. The rate of decomposition of H2O2 was measured spectrophotometrically at 240 nm. Catalase values were expressed as n moles H2O2 consumed/min/mg protein. Measurement of lipid peroxidation TBARS, a measure of lipid per oxidation, was measured as described by Ohkawa .
In beaker put 10ml of 2mole Hydrochloric acid, which is measured by beaker. In beaker from step 17, put 10 ml of distilled water, which is measured by cylinder. With the glass rod stir beaker in step 18. Repeat step 4 to 9. Repeat step 17 to 20 for 5 times.
Another 5-mL test tube, labelled as B, was filled with 1 mL of distilled water. A drop of methyl red was added. Also, a 0.01M hydrochloric acid (HCl) was added in a dropwise manner from a syringe until the color of the solution matches that of the first test tube setup. The volume of the HCl used was recorded for the determination of the ionization constant of
• If no agglutnation seen test is –ve. B. SEMI-QUANTITATIVE SLIDE TEST: • Clean the glass slide. • Place drops of undiluted serum in 1st ,2nd ,3rd ,4th and 5th circles respt. on the slide. • Add one drop of the appropriate Ag solution which showed agglutionation in slide test in each of the circle.
The setup for the cation exchange chromatography is shown in Figure 3. This was done by plugging the bottom of a burette with a small amount of glass wool. The wool was lightly packed using a thermometer. Approximately 5 mL of Dowex 50 cation exchange resin was obtained in a small beaker, and the resin was mixed with 5 mL of pH 3 citrate buffer. This mixture was poured into the burette with the stopcock closed.
Next, a basic stock solution was used to prepare various concentrations ranging from 1.0 x 10-8M to 1.0 x 10-1M by serial dilution. The tissue was washed by overflow with reservoir’s solution for 5 seconds to obtain baseline before adding 0.1ml, 0.3ml and 0.5ml for each concentration respectively into the tissue bath.The tissue’s peak response for each final bath concentration(FBC) was measured and recorded. Rmax and EC50 of histamine were recorded. Later, 5ml of 1 x 10-6 M of mepyramine was added into the reservoir containing 1000ml of Krebs-Henssleit solution to produce a FBC of 5.0 x 10-9M. It was equilibrated with tissue for 10 minutes by flushing into the organ bath.
Standard solution The standard solution was tested for its value and was used in the calculation of the patient's urea and creatinine value. ii. Running patient's specimen a. Creatinine 1ml of creatinine reagent 1 and 200ml of creatinine reagent 2 was pipetted into the same 1ml cuvette. Following that, 40ml of patient's sample was transferred into the cuvette. The absorbance of the mixture was measured at 30s (A1), 5min and 6min intervals.
Subsequently, the Erlenmeyer flask was filled with 100 mL of distilled water. Using the thermometer, the temperature was measured and recorded. Then, the 25-mL graduated cylinder was filled with 25 mL of distilled water, and its mass was measured and recorded. The density of the water was found using the temperature and the Density of water index. Moreover, the calculated volume of water was calculated using the formula of density, and the difference between observed volume and calculated volume was found.
If the color changes, then it is known that monosaccharides are present in the solution. Next, one will test for starches. Starch solution is then placed into the test tube at a quantity of 5 mL. 5 drops of Lugol’s Iodine solution is added to the test tube. If the color changes, then it is known that starches are present in the solution.
