    Investigating the Effects Catalyse Has on Hydrogen Peroxide Solution Aim: I am going to investigate the effects which catalyse has on a hydrogen peroxide solution Preliminary work We would use potato to do the experiment because we had done a previous experiment when we put a piece of potato and liver into a hydrogen peroxide solution and the rate of reaction for the liver was too fast to measure and time. But the potato had a slower reaction which will be easier to time and we can

    reactions. Background Information Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is a powerful oxidant; it readily breaks down into water and oxygen. The breakdown can be speeded up by introducing the enzyme, oxidoreductase (commonly known as catalase). [IMAGE] I will investigate the effect of varying hydrogen peroxide concentrations on the rate of reaction. Prediction I believe that the rate of reaction will increase as the concentration of hydrogen peroxide used increases, I do however think that

    Immobilized Enzymes (Yeast) Abstract Catalase is an enzyme found in living cells and is used to break down peroxides. Yeast cells, which contain catalase, are used to catalyse the decomposition of hydrogen peroxide solution into water and oxygen gas. The yeast cells were immobilized in sodium alginate beads in this experiment. Immobilized enzymes are widely used in biotechnology processes. They can be reused and is more stable at extremes of temperature and pH, thus improves the economy

    Investigation Aim To devise and carry out an investigation into how the concentration of hydrogen peroxide in a solution with distilled water will affect the rate of the catalysed reaction between hydrogen peroxide solution and manganese oxide. I will be studying the chemical catalyst manganese and its reaction with different concentrations of hydrogen peroxide. The liquid hydrogen peroxide decomposes according to the equation: 2H202 (l) 2H20 (l) + 02 (g) So to measure the rates

    The Effect of Temperature on the Activity of the Enzyme Catalase Introduction: The catalase is added to hydrogen peroxide (H²0²), a vigorous reaction occurs and oxygen gas is evolved. This experiment investigates the effect of temperature on the rate at which the enzyme works by measuring the amount of oxygen evolved over a period of time. The experiment was carried out varying the temperature and recording the results. It was then repeated but we removed the catalase (potato) and

    learnt that: Catalyse is an enzyme that is found in foods such as potato and liver. Catalyse speeds up the decomposition of hydrogen peroxide into water because the shape of the hydrogen peroxide molecule. This type of where a molecule is broken down into smaller pieces is called an anabolic reaction. This enzyme catalysis is the breakdown of hydrogen peroxide and it forms oxygen gas and water. Enzymes are very large and complex organic molecules that are synthesized by the cell to perform

    down hydrogen peroxide into oxygen and water. Our group developed an experiment to test the rate of reaction of catalase in whole carrots and pinto beans with various concentrations of hydrogen peroxide. Almost all enzymes are proteins and proteins are made up of amino acids. The areas within an enzyme speed up the chemical reactions which are known as the active sites, and are also where the

    Investigating Enzyme Activity Aim: To investigate how the concentration of hydrogen peroxide effects the rate of reaction of an enzyme (catalase) Variables: These factors could effect the rate of reaction on an enzyme: · pH · Concentration · Temperature · Surface Area pH - Enzymes function at different pH values. In neutral conditions the amount of oxygen gas given of in an enzyme-catalysed reaction will increase. An enzyme is affected by how much acid or alkali is

    Investigating the Effect of Substrate Concentration on Catalase Reaction Planning -Aim: The aim of the experiment is to examine how the concentration of the substrate (Hydrogen Peroxide, H2O2) affects the rate of reaction of the enzyme (Catalase). -Background information: Enzyme Enzymes are protein molecules that act as the biological catalysts. A catalyst is a molecule which can speed up chemical reaction but remains unchanged at the end of the reaction. Enzymes catalyze

    of liquid. In this experiment I shall look at the effect of concentration on the rate of reaction between hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and a catalyst- catalase, which is found in potato chips. Hydrogen peroxide is a toxic by product of metabolism. Catalase is one of the fastest acting enzymes known. And when reacted with hydrogen peroxide it catalases the decomposition of hydrogen peroxide giving out oxygen I shall start off with background theory and use it to make a prediction and then plan
