    heat fixing the organism to a slide from a slant. Then there is a process of staining the slide first with violet, then with decolorizer, then with safranin. After the precise and delicate process of gram stain, a microscope will be utilized to view the color and morphology of the stained organism present. Viewing this slide, it is found that the organism present turned out purple, making it gram positive. This is meaningful because gram positive tells us that this organism has a thick…

    representative phenol compounds: phenol, 2-chloro- and 2-nitrophenol. The batch experiments were carried out with the phenol solution in the absence of light, unbuffered solutions, varying the doses of hydrogen peroxide from 0.2 to 3.5mM per 1 mM of phenolic compound. The initial concentrations of phenol compounds were 2.66 mM phenol, 1.95mM 2-chlorophenol and 1.8 mM 2- nitrophenol. The molar ratio of [ferrous ion: phenolic contaminant] was kept at 0.01:1. And, for the anions, 20mM of NaCl and…

    In addition to acting as a super antioxidant, catalase also has the ability to use hydrogen peroxide to oxidize toxins including methanol, ethanol, formic acid, formaldehyde, and nitrite. This type of dual activity makes it a crucial cellular enzyme. The Health Benefits of Catalase 1. Powerful Antioxidant Support Catalases are perhaps the single most efficient enzymes found in the cells of the human body. Catalase has been shown to create a speedy reaction against hydrogen peroxide free…

    In this study, multiwalled carbon nanotubes@poly(p-phenylenediamine)-prussian blue (MWCNTs@PpPD-PB) nanocomposites were synthesized and used for the nonenzymatic electrochemical detection of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). The PpPD layer also helps the MWCNTs to be dispersed in the water together with the PB formation and fixing on the surface of the MWCNTs. Moreover, PpPD, a conductive polymer, increases the electronic conductivity and stability of MWCNTs. By combining the selectivity and catalytic…

    The experiment began with a reaction of a 1cm3 cube of lamb liver and 5mL of hydrogen peroxide solution being put in test tubes in a beaker filled with 10℃ water until the temperatures of the liver and hydrogen peroxide were 10℃ also. The liver was put into a 100mL measuring cylinder and the hydrogen peroxide was also poured in as the timer was started. After twenty seconds, several millilitres of froth had been produced from the chemical concoction. This froth was recorded into a results table,…

    Hydrogen Peroxide makes it shoot up into the sky. Most of the time when you use really scalding water you will not be able to touch it or it will literally burn the individual’s flesh off their hand. Many people have tried to touch this and has either got lucky or had to be rushed to the emergency room. Theses procedures must be followed precisely you will only need a cup of hydrogen peroxide a smaller amount will not activate this experiment and to too much will have you cleaning up the science…
