Then 200 µl of the solution phenol/chloroform/isoamyl alcohol (25:24:1) was added to the tubes under the fume hood and tubes were placed on rotator and left to mix for 3 min. 200 µl of TE buffer was added and spun for 5 min at maximum speed, the water phase was transferred to new tubes. 1 ml of cold 96 % ethanol was added, mixed and then spun for 5 min at maximum speed at 4°C. the supernatant was discarded and the pellet re-suspended in 400 µl of TE buffer (40 mM Tris-Base, 20 mM acetic acid, 1 mM EDTA, pH 8.0). 6 µl of 7.5 M ammonium acetate was added and the pervious step was repeated.
In the round-bottom flask (100 mL), we placed p-aminobenzoic acid (1.2 g) and ethanol (12 mL). We swirled the mixture until the solid dissolved completely. We used Pasteur pipet to add concentrated sulfuric acid (1.0 mL) to the flask. We added boiling stone and assembled the reflux. Then, we did reflux for 75 minutes.
The cola drinks were titrated using the following method: Prepare the beverage in a 250ml volumetric flask. Use a funnel to facilitate the process. Place the beaker on a hot plate so that it boils and place a watch glass on top to prevent the carbon dioxide from the atmosphere getting dissolved in the cola. Once the cola starts to boil, continue to boil it for another 10 minutes so that the carbon dioxide is removed.
The aqueous extract was prepared by dissolving 1g of dry extract with 20 ml of sterilized distilled water, so the final concentration of extract would be 0.05 g/ml, from this solution other concentration were prepared (0.1-0.2) g/ml. the solutions were shaken for 30 min. The extract was centrifuged (30,000 rpm; 15 min) and the supernatant was Separated. To hydroalcoholic extract, 80 g of the powder was extracted with aqueous methanol (75%). The other two concentrations were prepared from soaking sixfold aqueous methanol (75%) with different amounts of powder.
We then added 10cm3 ethanoic anhydride to the salicylic acid and swirled the contents, this mixes together the two chemicals. We then added 5 drops of concentrated sulphuric acid to the flask and thoroughly swirled the mixture, this creates the solution that makes the aspirin. We then warmed the flask for 20 minutes in a 400cm3 beaker of hot water which was approximately 60°C, we made sure the flask did not go above 65°C because this could have caused the contents to evaporate. Part 2: Using a 25cm3 measuring cylinder we measured out 15cm3 of ethanol into a boiling tube and then prepared a beaker half filled with hot water at approx. 75°C, we got this temperature by filling the beaker with cold water and slowly adding boiling water from a kettle until we reached the right temperature.
Ligation The objective of this experiment was to ligate EGFP DNA inserts into pET41a(+) plasmids. A total of five ligations were performed, two actual ligations and three control ligations. The following reagents were utilized: Nco I/Not I cut pET-41a(+) DNA 50 ng/μL, EGFP cDNA insert 7 ng/μL, uncut pET-41a(+) DNA/EGFP recombinant plasmid DNA 25 ng/μL, ligase buffer 10X, and ligase.
The molecular weight of CaCl2 was 111 g/mole. Weighed 11.1g CaCl2 and dissolved into 100ml distilled water. The final CaCl2 concentration would be 1M. CaCl2 solution was used to make bottom agar and initiate the infection cycle. 3.4 Selection of most sensitive strain to bacteriophages to make new stock culture Starting culture was prepared by inoculating 1ml (1×109 CFU/ml) stock Lactococcus lactis ssp.
5-aminotetrazole monohydrate: In a 250 ml round-bottom flask equipped with a condenser for refluxing (90 °C) and a magnetic stirring bar, 5.00 g (5.95 mmol) dicyandiamide (three times crystallized), 7.47 g (11.9 mmol) sodium azide and 11.00 g (17.8 mmol) boric acid and 100 ml of water is added and allowed to reflux for 24 hours, after the completion of the reaction, until the solution pH to about 2 to 3 as hydrochloric acid 37% is added (about 12 ml) Then the reaction mixture was cooled in a refrigerator for 18 hours and the white crystals formed. The mixture was filtered and washed three times with 10 ml of water and and dried in 60 °C for 5 hours and finally 45.8 g of product by it will be obtained. 5-Aminotetrazol monohydrate:
The tube was placed back in incubation for 96 more hours to observe any more positives. 2.10 Catalase Test A trypticase soy agar plate was used and after incubation, four drops of 3% Hydrogen Peroxide was added to the plate to flow over the bacterial growth. A presence of bubbling was observed. 2.11 Starch Hydrolysis
2-Preparation of nutrient agar plates: Cup –plate method was used for screening the antibacterial activity of pure and dried 100 % ethanol extract .A commercial sample of amoxicillin was used as a standard and nutrient agar was used as culture medium. The natural agar consist of Yeast Extract, Tryptone , Lactose , Manniiol, Sodium Chloride , Dip otassium Hydrogen Phosphate ,Gelatin and Agar .Then , in a conical flask 14g of nutrient agar was mixed into 500 ml of distilled water and , The mixture was stirred and dissolved until most of the agar dissolve. By non-absorbent cotton wool plug the mouth of the flask was closed. By using the autoclave the agar was sterilized for 15 minutes.
The cuvettes were retrieved from their respected conditions. 100 micro liters of solution C was added to cuvette 1b, 2b, 3b and 4busing a micropipette, the cuvette was covered with Para film in order to be mixed, then removed and was placed in the spectrophotometer. The absorbance was recorded immediately, then every thirty seconds for five minutes. Different volumes of solution C were added to cuvettes 1a-4a. 100 micro liters to 1a, 400 microliters to 2a, 200 micro liters to 3a and 500 micro liters to 4a.
50 μL of these dilution solutions were separated on the TLC plate coated with SNISG. The plate was developed with petroleum ether: ethyl acetate (4:1) and the movement of solvent was usually controlled at 1 cm from the upper edge. After completion, the plate was dried until no solvent smell remained. It was sprayed with an ethanol solution containing 10% sulfuric acid, and heated at an infra-red drier until obvious color came up, as shown in Fig.2 (B.ab). Simultaneously, the amount of silver nitrate in the impact of isolative effect was investigated with the sample procedure, as shown in Fig.2
Then, the pipet was rinsed with distilled water. The bulbs were then attached to the pipette; filling and dispensing water were practiced using both bulbs. Furthermore, the 250-mL beaker was weighed, and its mass was recorded. After that, the Erlenmeyer flask was filled with 100 mL of distilled water. The temperature was recorded.
Then carefully measure 25ml of methanol and 25ml of ethyl acetate using a measuring beaker 12. Pour each solvent into its respective labelled mortar 13. Stir each sample for 10 minutes using a stirring rod 14. Leave solutions in the sun for 12 hours, this is to allow for the active ingredients bond with the solvent and form a solution and to allow some of the Methanol and Ethyl acetate to evaporate. 15.
The objective of this experiment was to create synthesize methyl eugenol from eugenol, dimethyl carbonate, and tetrabutylammonium bromide. To start off the experiment, a heating under reflux apparatus was used and the parts included: a water jacketed condenser, ring stand, tubes, flowing water, 25-mL round bottom flask, heating block, and a hot plate. There were two parts to the water condenser, entry and exit ways for water. The bottom opening was connected to the sink through one tube and the top opening was connected with a loose end, which was needed to get rid of the flowing water. To create the solution needed to synthesize methyl eugenol, approximately 0.200 g of eugenol (note: the measured g was converted to mg for later calculations) was measured, alongside approximately 1.2 g of TBAB and was added to the 25-mL round bottom flask.
