The Effect Of Acids And Base On The Pigments Of Red Cabbage

- Introduction This lab experiment, explored the different levels of the ph scale by mixing red cabbage water with vinegar, ammonia, lemon juice, coffee, bleach, and baking soda. Objectives The purpose of this lab is to study the effect of acids and base (pH) on the pigment of red cabbage (anthocyanins). Food Science Principles pH is a measure of how acidic/basic water is. The range goes from 0 - 14, with 7 being neutral. pHs of less than 7 indicate acidity, whereas a pH of greater than 7 indicates a base....   [tags: Acid, PH, Base, PH indicator]

An Experiment On Acid Base Extraction

- Performing this experiment, we used the technique called Acid-Base extraction to isolate Eugenol, which is one of the main ingredients of clove oil. Acid-Base extraction is the most efficient method for isolating organic component; it is efficient because it purifies the acid and base mixture based on their chemical identities. We have seen throughout this experiment that acid and base play an important role, when it comes to solubility in water. Our basic knowledge of acid and base is acid is a proton donor and base is a proton acceptor....   [tags: Chemistry, Water, Acid dissociation constant]

Description Of A Secure Base

- Another rather consistent observation I saw was the indication that most children used their parent as a secure base. A secure base is provided through a relationship that harbors one or more responsive caregivers who meets the child’s needs and to whom the child can turn to as a safe haven, when upset or distraught. This relationship can be seen in many of the observations I made. The one that stands out the most and that clearly depicts how a child uses a secure base is Susy.

Disturbances of Acid-Base Balance

- Disturbances of Acid-Base Balance If an acid-base disturbance shifts the pH outside of the physiologic range, various control measures are activated to resist the change in pH. Compensatory mechanisms try to preserve the normal 20:1 ratio of bicarbonate to carbonic acid to keep the pH at normal range. The body works to maintain normal ratios through a compensation mechanism using renal and respiratory methods (Crowley, 2010). Metabolic Alkalosis Metabolic alkalosis is seen by an increase in the concentration of plasma bicarbonate relative to the concentration of carbonic acid, which shifts the pH to the alkaline side of the physiologic range (case study- pH 7.5)....   [tags: Scientific Research ]

Chemical Makeup And Acid Base Reactions

- Exaction is where a solute is transfer from solvent A to solvent B (Ketcha, 47). A possible method to do this is changing the chemical makeup by using acid-base reactions (Ketcha, 42). The acid-base reactions change the solubility of the solute. If the original solute is ionic and is dissolvable is solvent A but not B, then adding the acid HCl would change the solute to its conjugate acid. The resulting acid would then be soluble in B but not A. To revert the change, just add the base NaOH to the solution....   [tags: Solvent, Solubility, Chemistry, Solution]

The Extraction Procedure For Separate The Acid, Base And Neutral Components Of The Solution Into Separate Phases

- The extraction procedure was undertaken in order to separate the acid, base and neutral components of the solution into separate phases. This procedure was executed using different solvents with different polarities in order to extract the different solutes. The recrystallization procedure was undertaken in order to purify the solutes further by removing any contaminants. This was done by using hot solvent and then allowing it to cool, which causes the compound to precipitate out. This creates purified crystals that have less other associated compounds....   [tags: Solubility, Solvent, Solution, Acetic acid]
