    Since there are more than 50 million chemical compounds on Earth and even more being discovered or synthesized each year, it is increasingly difficult to identify compounds.1 However, with the help of physical and chemical properties of the atoms or molecules that make up a compound, identifying a chemical compound is not as daunting as it may seem. There are three main types of chemical compounds: metallic, covalent, and ionic compounds.2 In this experiment, however, the unknown compounds are specifically ionic. An ionic compound is made up of a metal atom and a nonmetal atom. When a metal atom ionically bonds to a nonmetal atom, the metal atom transfers one or more of its electrons to the nonmetal atom, causing the metal atom to become a…

    weight. The modification of these properties pave the way for future research in inhibitor technology. Introduction The inherent protection of metals and their alloys used in industry are of the upmost importance when it comes to longevity and reliability of structures. Many chemical compounds have been developed over the years that can inhibit the corrosion rate of metal alloys but cost effectiveness, toxicity, processibility and other factors limit the applications1. The need for new,…

    Green chemistry principles were applied to multi-step synthesis reactions; these reactions included the bromination of trans-diphenylethylene, bromination of ethyl trans-cinnamate, and debromination of 1, 2-dibromo-1, 2-diphenylethane. These reactions featured a reflux set-up, which allowed the reactions to occur at higher temperatures and aided in the prevention of the evaporation of the solvent and the loss of product thereby increasing the efficiency of the reactions. Furthermore, the…

    We were employed by the Environmental Protection Agency as chemists. Our task is to identify an unknown compound that was found in a nearby landfill. In this laboratory, the unknown compound was given to us by our TA. The main goal of this experiment was to correctly identify the unknown compound. We also wanted to discover as many chemical and physical properties as possible. Physical properties are those that can be determined without performing any changes to the identity of the substance.…

    Benzalknoium salts are acknowledged as benzalknoium chloride, also known as BZK, BKC, BAC, alkyldimethylbenzylammonium chloride and ADBAC. These salts are known to have several names and are also considered as cationic surfactants. Surfactants are compounds that subordinate the surface tension among two liquids or among a liquid and a solid. Surfactants have the availability to act as detergents, wetting agents, emulsifiers, foaming agents, and dispersants. Benzalknoium salts are used in…

    parts. The main goal of the experiment is to identify the unknown compound the lab group was given. Along with this, the group is to discover the compounds many physical or chemical properties. Lastly, the group is supposed to create and preform two syntheses of the compound and see how they compare and contrast in different areas like costs effectiveness, safety, and potential yield of the compound. Through all of these different goals, the underlying key goal is to learn more about this…

    As briefly mentioned before, atropine acts as an antagonist on acetylcholine because its chemical structure is similar to acetylcholine. Thus, structure is an important feature of the atropine molecule that is imperative to understanding its effects on the body. Although today’s chemists know the chemical structure of atropine, the conformational flexibility of the molecule is still poorly understood. A conformation is any three-dimensional arrangement of atoms within a molecule that results…
