    The purposes of this experiment were to model a bimolecular nucleophilic substitution reaction between potassium hydroxide (KOH) with 1-bromopropane and determine whether it follows a second-order rate law mechanism. A rate constant of 0.0684 M-1 min-1 was obtained for this reaction at 45.1°C, which was determined through equilibrating the reaction and performing titrations of 0.390 M KOH with 0.1000 M hydrochloric acid (HCl). The activation energy calculated from class data was 50.188 kJ/mol, which

    water purification, etc. The negative ionic charge of alum of potassium and its molecular structure makes this compound unable to be absorbed by the skin, therefore, it is sometimes used as antiperspirants by deodorant industries. The energy needed to produce new aluminum from the secondary aluminum product through recycling s is less energy than creating brand new products of aluminum. The main purpose is to synthesize alum, potassium aluminum

    huge increase in energy savings and costs, and that is aluminum. Using aluminum can pieces with KOH (potassium hydroxide) and other reactants will eventually lead to the production of alum. Materials and Methods Starting the experiment, 1.0184 g of aluminum pieces were weighed out on an analytical balance. The aluminum was then placed in a 250 mL beaker containing 50.1 mL of 1.4M potassium hydroxide. The solution was then heated on a hot plate set at 80ºC for approximately 35 minutes with a spin of

    Synthesis of benzilic acid from benzoin utilizing a multi-step reaction. Names: Arian Karim TA Name: Sayantan Das Lab Day & Time: Thursday 7:30-11:40 Lab Section #: Abstract The main purpose of this experiment was to synthesize benzilic acid from benzoin. This requires a multistep synthesis with benzyl as an intermediate product. The first step required HNO3 as an oxidizing agent and the second step required KOH and HCl. The percentage yields of benzil and benzilic acid were 59.5%

    acid to form benzil. The percent yield of benzil was 59.26% and the melting point range was 94.1-95.5°C. The literature melting point of pure benzil is 95°C, which indicates the correct product was obtained. Benzil was then rearranged using potassium hydroxide to form benzilic acid. The percent yield of benzilic acid was 57.94% and the melting point range was 147.9-149.8°C. The literature melting point of pure benzilic acid is 150°C; this also indicates that the correct product was isolated. Crude

    skin scraping and potassium hydroxide preparation test. The test is to assess if fungal or dermatophytic spores and hyphae are present from the skin lesion (Dains et al., 2016). Carefully scrape the skin lesion with scalpel. It is important to collect the cells from active area of the lesion like the outer are of the lesion. A drop of 20% potassium hydroxide is applied. The sample is then warmed and left for a few minutes. Add 40% of dimethyl sulfoxide to the potassium hydroxide solution for faster

    triglyceride in a fat or oil with an aqueous alkali, sodium hydroxide, results in hydrolysis of the triglyceride esters forming soap. (Ausetute, 2014) A visual aid is presented in figure 1. (Chem La Tech, 2003) To create soap, two major raw materials are needed, fat and alkali. The alkali most commonly used today in soap making is sodium hydroxide. Potassium hydroxide can also be used. The alkali used in this lab was sodium hydroxide; sodium hydroxide was used as a reagent which is a substance that is used

    1. Purpose of potassium within the plant To begin the process, potassium is a vital nutrient to productively grow many plants, although potassium isn’t an active ingredient of the chemical structure it still plays several significantly high roles in the development. There are several roles potassium does such as enzyme activation, photosynthesis, stomatal activity, transportation of sugars, water and nutrient transportation, starch synthesis, and improving the quality of the desired crop. 2.
