  • The Importance Of Acids And Bases

    Acids and Bases All substances have properties like color, smell, density, etc. (Carboni…). But substances also have a property of being either acidic or basic. A substance is determined to be an acid or a base based on its pH level. Both acids and bases undergo a process known as dissociation. Dissociation is the freeing of ions. Substances that free hydroxide ions are bases, and substances that free hydrogen ions are acids, but only when they are mixed with water. Acids are rich and plentiful in hydrogen ions. However, bases are low in hydrogen ions. Sometimes, there are strong acids that have a higher concentration of ions than other acidic substances, and the same goes for bases. At other times though, there are acids and bases…

  • The Basics Of Acids And Bases

    amount of acidity they are tasting. Acids and bases can usually be defined by your senses. For example, edible acids usually have a sour taste(4). Bases are more bitter-tasting and unstable(4). But, your senses are not the only ways you could detect acids. Sometimes you have to use measurements like the pH scale to detect if a substance is a acid or a base. Since, acids and bases surround us, it is important know information about them and how to detect them. Before we start measuring acid we…

  • Benzoic Acid And Acid-Base Reaction

    Ferhan Abdullah Thursday, 09 November 2016 Experiment 7 The Separation of Three Organic Compounds by Acid-Base Reactions and Liquid-Liquid Extractions Abstract: The purpose of the experiment was to isolate the three mixtures 9-fluorenone , benzoic acid and benzocaine by the liquid-liquid extraction method and the acid-base reaction technique. Using the acid-base reaction technique, the acid and base are neutralized, producing salt and water. By using the liquid-liquid extraction method, two…

  • Sulphamic Acid Case Study

    Company manufactures the sulphamic acid. During the process scrubber through SO3 gas liberate the atmosphere. So these SO3 undesirable gases are reducing. The SO3 gas is hazards and it is pollute the atmosphere. In this project we can solve the possible solution then apply to the plant scale. 1.2 Objective Of Projects In these manufacturing process of sulphamic acid first raw material put at the batch reactor and after some time hot discharge solution in put the dumping…

  • Sulphuric Acid Case Study

    3. SAFETY AND ENVIRONMENTAL ASPECTS OF SULPHURIC ACID PRODUCTION 1. Safety Aspects 1. Basic Safety Aspects due to Physical properties and behaviour of Sulfuric acid. Basically, we know attention is paramount when adding water to a highly concentrated acid and this is the case with sulphuric acid which is highly risky. Sulfuric acid can have serious adverse effects like burns if it contacts the skin. This is due to the dehydrating properties of the acid on organic materials. Also, when the…

  • Analysis Of Acid Base Titration

    Introduction Acid-base titrations are used to calculate properties of an acid or a base by titrating them with a strong Acid or base. In a titration, certain amount of volume of one substance usually a strong acid or base, a titrant, is added to another substance, an acid or base of some kind, until a change in properties are observed. Strong acids and bases are used because they allow the neutralization reaction between the acid and base into salt to go to completion. By titrating an unknown…

  • Phytic Acid Case Study

    RESULTS Phytic Acid The concentration of phytic acid was determined spectrophotometrically in three tested plant materials of Gishta as shown in table 2. The concentrations of phytic acid were obtained from 5 g dried leafy material. All the leaf samples contained phytic acid (detection limit 0.025 mg/ml) in this study. This may have been due to the fact that there was a limitation in terms of the detection concentration since concentrations less than mg was not tested. Seed extracts was found…

  • Consequences Of Acid Rain

    What is acid rain? Acid rain is a form of deposition in which chemicals with an acidic pH level are taken out of the atmosphere through precipitation. When we pollute the air by burning fossil fuels, we create different chemicals that end up in our atmosphere. A few of these have chemical reactions with the water in clouds, and form (depending on the chemical) sulfurous and nitrous acids. When it rains, this acid is taken back to the ground. While pure water has a neutral pH level of 7,…

  • Acid Titration

    Title: To what extent does strong and weak acids differ in affecting the course of titrations. Introduction: The real life application that comes from this experiment links to agriculture. In the past decade, industrial dumping has become a controversial topic. Dumping hazardous wastes into river, ocean, and soil has resulted in a dramatic change in pH of the non-renewable resources and leads to a destruction in the ecosystem. Specially in agriculture, crops cannot grow in acidic soil, so it is…

  • Malic Acid And Acidity In Wine

    Malic acid is one of the primary contributors of acidity in the grape. Its concentration tends to decrease as the grape ripe and it is mostly due to metabolic respiration. The vine and grape are depend on the Malic acid as a fuel in respiration. During warmer days, the metabolic respiration will be higher and thus decrease the total amount of Malic acid. However when in a cooler climates, the concentration of mMlic acid will remain at initial levels or slightly decrease only. Malic acid is very…
