    Discussion By using acid-base extraction techniques, a three-component mixture was separated into its individual components which included an acidic, basic, and neutral component as previously mentioned. A separatory funnel was the mechanism used to carry out this procedure. Its easy handling allowed for thorough mixing of the solution. It was equipped with a stopper which was opened to release pressure from inside the funnel caused by the heat from one’s hands and also the reactions taking place

    Acid Base Extraction The purpose of this laboratory assignment was two-fold, first, we were to demonstrate the extraction of acids and bases, finally, determining what unknowns were present. Second, we were to extract caffeine from tea. These two assignment will be documented in two separate entities. Introduction: Acid/base extraction involves carrying out simple acid/base reactions in order to separate strong organic acids, weak organic acids neutral organic compounds and basic organic substances

    Acid-Base Extraction Lab Experimental: Three grams of a mixture containing Benzoic Acid and Naphthalene was obtained and placed in 100 ml beaker and added 30 ml of ethyl acetate for dissolving the mixture. A small amount (1-2 drops) of this mixture was separated into a test tube. This test tube was covered and labelled as “M” (mixture). This was set to the side and used the following week for the second part of lab. The content in the beaker was then transferred into separatory funnel. 10 ml of

    Introduction Acid-base extraction is a very useful technique in organic chemistry. It is used to separate organic compounds from each other. The idea is that most of organic compounds will be more soluble in organic solvents than they are in water (1). The extraction, in its most basic form, will result in unequal distribution of solute between two immiscible (not forming one mixture when added together) solvents (2). Since both of the solvents are immiscible, two separate layers will be formed

    Figure. 7. Effect of pH solution of feed phase on the removal efficiency of citric acid Transport conditions: Feed phase: citric acid 10-2 M, pH 2-12. Stripping phase: deionized water, pH=6.8. Membrane: 12.60 cm2 of surface area, Calix[4]resorcinarene (0.15 g/g mixture of polymers), 0.03 ml 2-NPOE/g mixture of polymers. Values obtained after 5 days of experimentation. 3.8 Stability of PIMs In this study, one PIM was reused, whereas the feed and strip phases were replaced after one cycle with

    Acid-Base Imbalance Janet J Memoli Grand Canyon University NUR 641E September 30, 2015 Acid- Base Imbalance One of the basic concepts that new nurses need to learn is that homeostasis in the body is maintained by the acid base balance in the body. That concept is critical when looking at arterial blood gases. This can help guide the nurse to anticipate what the doctor will order and the education that she needs to give the patient and the family. This case study should help to illustrate

    molecules containing a group of atoms called an ester can be hydrolyzed by water to form a –COOH group (carboxylic acid) and an HO-- group (alcohol) as follows: RCOOR’ + H2O ( RCOOH + HOR’ This reaction is spontaneous for almost all esters but can be very slow under typical conditions of temperature and pressure. The reaction occurs at a much faster rate if there is a significant amount of base (OH-) in the solution. In this lab experiment, the rate of this reaction will be studied using an ester called

    a condition in which the blood pH is below 7.35 and alkalosis is a condition in which the blood pH is higher than 7.45. Significant changes in pH range can affect cellular function and possibly lead to death. “Your blood needs the right balance of acid and basic (alkaline) compounds to function properly”. (George, K., 2013) Respiratory acidosis is a condition that happens when there is too much carbon dioxide in the lungs. When this happens, the blood becomes too acidic. People with respiratory

    School of Nursing, Midwifery and Interprofessional Studies. With reference to acid-base balance explore the role of the respiratory system in maintaining blood pH? ‘We live and die at the cellular level’ (Reid, 2011). Homeostasis is crucial for normal cellular function. Acid-base homeostasis is the part of human homeostasis and refers to the balance between the production and elimination of H+ hydrogen ions (pH) within the body fluids (William, Simpkins, 2001, p.236). Metabolic reactions

    produces. This causes body fluids, mainly the blood to become too acidic. Respiratory Alkalosis is an acid imbalance due to a condition called hyperventilation which is where you take in too much oxygen and it decreases the carbon dioxide being produced in your body. Metabolic Acidosis is a condition that occurs when the body produces excessive quantities of acid or when the kidneys are not removing enough acid from the body. Metabolic alkalosis is a metabolic condition in which the pH of tissue is elevated
