CHAPTER 1

THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND

We all know that ethanol or ethyl alcohol has a very good contribution to our life. Ethyl alcohol is an important industrial chemical. It is used as a solvent, in the synthesis of other organic chemicals, and as an additive to automotive gasoline (forming a mixture known as a gasohol). Ethyl

Therefore, it will be limited only to the production of ethyl alcohol using dried malunggay (Moringa oleifera) leaves. Thus, the application or testing to various kinds of bacteria and the acceptability of the people to the alcohol is not covered. The period of the study will be from June 2011 to April 2012. The place of the study will be on Carmona National High School, Carmona, Cavite. The study is guided through information taken from different citations and the methodology given.

CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK In this paradigm are ideas made for the materials used in making ethyl alcohol, the processes and the output of the study.

Fig. 1.1: Conceptual Paradigm

Malunggay (Moringa oleifera) is a plant of the family Moringaceae. It is a fast growing plant and can live up to 20 years. It is common all over the tropics (Ed Lagman, What is Malunggay?). This ÔÇ£Miracle TreeÔÇØ has many uses. Aside from having more nutritional values than other plants, its parts can be used as disinfectant, antiseptic and antibacterial. Ethanol, having a chemical composition of C2H5OH, is often called as ethyl alcohol. This will be the output for the study. The study needs dried malunggay (Moringa oleifera) leaves, yeast, sugar and water as its main inputs or ingredients in ethanol production. Using conversion, liquefaction, fermentation, distillation, filtration…
