    the action of an enzyme-catalysed reaction. A change in concentration will only affect the rate of reaction is it is a limiting factor and once the concentration has increased to the point that it can no longer affect the rate of reaction, then it no longer a limiting factor. This point is called the saturation point as seen in figure 6. (Alevelnotes, 2016) This experiment supported the hypothesis that the stronger the concentration, the more efficient the enzyme catalysed chemical reactions. .As

  • Kinetics Of Acid Catalysed Propanone / Iodine Reaction

    Alexander Unsworth - Tomlinson Candidate Number: 9133 Kinetics of Acid-Catalysed Propanone/Iodine Reaction Equation for the reaction : CH3COCH3(aq) + I2(aq) ——> CH3COCH2I(aq) + H+(aq) + I–(aq) Iodine + Propanone —> Iodopropanone + Hydrogen (cation) + Iodine (anion) Introduction: Aims: To vary the concentrations of each reactant along with the sulphuric acid in order to observe and measure its effect on the overall rate of reaction in absorbance using colourimetry. 2) Calculate

  • Determination of the Activation Energy of an Enzyme Catalysed Reaction

    963 Words  | 4 Pages

    Determination of the activation energy of an enzyme catalysed reaction Introduction In this practical the aim for this experiment was to find out the catalytic power of alkaline phosphate, as well as the rate of reaction and the activation energy of p-nitrophenol phosphate. Enzymes are biological molecules that catalyse a chemical reaction. ‘Enzymes work by lowering the activation energy of a chemical reaction making it easier to proceed’ [1]. This allows molecules to have more energy therefore

  • Advantages Of Lipirani

    Oils, Transesterification, Esterification, Biocatalysts, Lipase Introduction Biodiesel is a biofuels very important and a clean energy source as an alternative to petroleum fuels. Biodiesel can be produced through transesterification reaction catalysed by chemically or enzymatically. There are certain advantages of Enzymatic transesterification over the chemical catalysis of transesterification as it is a “green” process. Biodiesel has some advantages and disadvantages. Transportability, high combustion

  • Personal Statement For My Passion For Chemistry

    Through out life had taught me many things. I have found that the true happiness cannot be only achieved by hard work and acumen, but also by immense audacity for pursuing my aspirations. The profound crave for learning, invention and teaching in me lead me to continue my education for a PhD degree. My temper for science become discernible when I had sudden realization during my senior secondary school. Throughout the school I was never certain for which career path is fine for me. At that tie have

  • Electrophilic Aromatic Substitution Reaction Lab Report

    Cl2SO+--AlCl3 (Sun, Haas, Sayre, & Weller, p.1). What has not been performed yet is a similar reaction involving iron(III) chloride (FeCl3). The FeCl3-catalysed Friedel-Crafts (EAS) reactions with thionyl chloride and benzene will optimistically produce different yield percentages of diphenyl sulfoxides and diphenyl sulfides than that of the AlCl3-catalysed reactions. Hopefully, the study of these reactions will lead to better knowledge of how Lewis-acid catalysts play a role in electrophilic aromatic

  • Why Does The Concentration Of An Enzyme Formed Increase With Time

    the substrate and catalyse its chemical transformation. Enzyme reduced the activation energy of this reaction. This enzyme-catalysed reaction takes a different 'route'. The enzyme and substrate form a reaction intermediate. Its formation has a lower activation energy than the reaction between reactants without a catalyst. Therefore more PNP formed. The rate of an enzyme-catalysed

  • Effects Of Concentration On The Rate Of Reaction

    et al , 2011 ) Enzyme substances bind at the active cite which contains amino acid chains. Without catalysis reactions the process would take place slowly to produce products , enzymes are most effective catalyst (Campbell and Farrell, 2011) .A catalysed reaction is obtained by the production of a complex between e and the reactants (Montgomery et al ., 1990).The reversible reaction can be seen below: E + S ⇄ ES ⇄ EP ⇄ E + P Inhibitors Competitive inhibitors bind to the active site of the enzyme

  • Protease Lab

    1563 Words  | 7 Pages

    Title: Reactions Catalysed by a Protease What is Proteases? It is an enzyme which conducts proteolysis, which then starts the catabolism of proteins through hydrolysis, which then later on links bonds of amino acids together in a chain known as the polypeptide chain. Proteases are categorised in six different groups. The first one is known as Serine Proteases which help digest food in the body and kill unwanted bacteria, they also assist the sperm penetrate the egg. The Second one is known as Threonine
