Ethanol To Acetyldehydee Lab Report

Amazing Essays
6. The first step in metabolism of ethanol in humans is the oxidation of ethanol to acetyldehyde by the enzyme alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH). At 298 K and pH=7.0, ethanol is incubated with ADH and the concentration of ethanol and acetyldehydee is measured over time.
a. Using the results above, calculate the standard free energy change (ΔGº’) for this reaction. Explain your calculations.
The standard free energy change can be expressed through the formula ΔGº’=-R(gas constant) T(temp in Kelvin) lnK’eq. K’eq is equal to the products of a reaction over the reactants of a reaction, or Products/Reactants. So, K equilibrium of this question would be 3.5 (Acetaldehyde)/6512.3 (Ethanol) because this is where equilibrium is reached. So the K’eq=5.37x10-4. So to determine the ΔGº’, -R= -1.987 cal/mol K, T=298 K, and lnK’eq=-7.53. This would make the equation= -1.987(298)ln(7.53). ΔGº’ comes out to equal ~-1195.
b. After dinner and a few drinks, the concentration of ethanol in a cell is measured to be 3412 mol/L and the concentration of acetaldehyde is measured to be 1.4 mol/L. Calculate ΔG’ and explain

This is a form of fermentation and occurs because an oxygen supply is not readily available. Fermentation occurs after glycolysis after pyruvate has been formed. In the pathway of ethanol metabolism, first, PDC (Pyruvate Decarboxylase) must catalyze a reaction in which Carbon Dioxide will be released, and pyruvate is converted to Acetaldehyde. Then, Alcohol Dehydrogenase comes in and reduces NADH+H+ to NAD+, and Acetaldehyde is converted into Ethanol. The body converts Pyruvate to Ethanol because not enough oxygen is in supply to go through Aerobic Respiration; therefore the body must obtain energy from somewhere. This fermentation process regenerates NAD+ which powers glycolysis. From glycolysis, the body gains about 2 molecules of ATP, so not a lot of energy comes from the consumption of

    Abstract: Fermentation of sucrose with brewer yeast catalyst was successfully conducted to yield ethanol with 70.2 % conversion of sucrose. Based on the graph of Refractive Index vs % ethanol (v/v), 32.8% of ethanol was determined to be in the distillate solution with corresponding Refractive Index of 1.3555 Statement and purpose The purpose of this experiment was to determine the % of ethanol (v/v) in the resulting solution and the % conversion of sucrose Introduction The fermentation 17.1 g of sucrose was successfully conducted by added 5.0 g of brewer yeast, 17.1 g sucrose and 100mL deionized water in a flask. After 1 week, the ethanol solution was distilled and collected. The reaction was demonstrated as below: C12H22O11 (s) + H2O (l)…

    Introduction: The purpose for this experiment is to carry out the dehydration of 2-methylcyclohexanol, which undergoes an E1 mechanism by following Saytzev’s rule to form different product such as 1-methylcyclohexanol, 3-methylcyclohexanol and methylenecyclohexane. The reaction can be dehydrated using sulfuric acid and H3PO4. The dehydration mechanism occurs in several steps like – 1. Converting the OH group into a better leaving group that is deprotonating with H3PO4. 2.…

    The separatory funnel was used to separate glucose, ethyl cinnamate, and cinnamic acid. The purity of ethyl cinnamate and glucose were tested through IR spectroscopy, and the purity of cinnamic acid was tested by finding the melting point. Experimental Methods 0.604 grams the starting mixture of cinnamic acid, ethyl cinnamate, and glucose was weighed out then was placed into a separatory funnel. Diethyl ether (10 mL, 0.134916 mol) was then swirled into the mixture. Then DI water (10 mL) was added to form the aqueous layer.…

    For this purpose, the condensation of benzaldehyde (1 mmol) with dimedone (2 mmol) (Scheme 3) was optimized in terms of the catalyst amount and temperature, under solvent-free conditions; the results are summarized in Table 5. The logical results were obtained when 15 mol% of tartaric acid was utilized at 70°C (Table 5, entry 4). In another study, when the reaction was carried out at 80ºC, the product was obtained in 92% yield at 10 min in comparison with 70ºC (Table 5, entry 8). Nevertheless, 70ºC was selected as optimal reaction temperature, because one aim of this work was performing the reaction in milder reaction conditions with respect to the reported works, and this was more logical. The efficiency and the generality of the catalyst were examined by the reaction of different arylaldehydes (having electron-withdrawing substituents, electrondonating substituents) with dimedone.…

    The preparations yielded consistent results, with an average maximum NAD+ photoreduction rate of 354.85 38.71 (mean S.E.) nmol min-1 mg CMI-1(Fig. 3,A). Comparing the production rates of H+ to NADH, it is possible to calculate the coupling efficiency of the two enzymes using the reaction stoichiometry of 5H+ to produce a one NADH molecule. During the reaction PSII produces H+ at 4.36 0.79 nmol min-1 (16), whereas CMI is responsible for their consumption at -1.77 0.19 nmol min-1 yielding a coupling efficiency of 38.32% 10.80%.…
