The Maillard Reaction is a non-enzymatic chemical reaction between amino acids and reducing sugars that commonly give brown foods their desired flavor. This reaction is also commonly referred to as the browning reaction due to the fact that the products of the chemical reactions have a brown color. As the chemical reaction proceeds, a series of chemical ring structures are formed that reflect brown light, thus providing the color.
The essential chemical reaction in this process occurs between…
Enzymes are biological catalysts. A protein compound Energy can reduce the carbon reaction. Enzymes to accelerate specific types of reactions. And the kind of substance that reacts.
2.1.1 catalysis of enzymes
E is a catalyst (enzyme).
S is a precursor called chop, nitrates and substance P is a product.
E + S ---------------> E S ---------------> E + P.
2.1.2 Factors affecting the enzyme.
1) What type of controlled…
catalyzing a different reaction. Each of the enzyme found are responsible on having a reaction occurring in the cell. In this certain reaction in the cell, the cell will tend to make poisonous chemical that could be harmful to the cell itself, the enzyme job here is to be used to breakdown these poisonous chemical to a harmless substance.
Catalese enzyme is a common enzyme that is found almost in all living organism including liver. This enzyme present in a liver exposed to oxygen…
The Objective was to determine the mass percent composition of the mixture using a chemical reaction and stoichiometry mixture Na2CO3 and NaHCO3. To do the lab by using the constant mass. Constant mass is a quantitative chemistry technique where a single chemical species or group reactants is heated with constant weighing until the mass does not change. After heated the Na2HCO3 will undergo a decomposition and Na2CO3 will not undergo reaction. The balanced equation is…
Carcinogenic Chemical Product:
Fire safety is a vital part of the modern technological society and as responsible citizens it is important to recognise that, with the aid of fire retardants, there is a prolong time frame of escaping from fires. This widely used carcinogenic product is composed of certain chemical elements within numerous everyday products (either inside the polymeric material or as an external layer) that help combat the ignition through chemical reactions at…
Enzymes, which speed up a chemical reaction without being consumed or changing the products of the reaction, are very important because they control the cellular activity of all living organisms. Enzymes are also described as being “catalysts”. In biological systems, specific enzymes catalyze particular cellular reactions. Each enzyme has a unique 3-D shape, and this shape determines which reaction it catalyzes. However, in order for a chemical reaction to move forward, an energy…

2. If the temperature of a reaction is decreased, what effect will this have on the rate of reaction?
A. It will have no effect.
B. The reaction will stop.
C. The rate of reaction will increase.
D. The rate of reaction will decrease.
3. Given the equilibrium reaction in a closed…
metal resulting from reactions with chemicals in its environment. The oxygen oxidizes with the metal, and the sodium help speed up the corrosion process. The presence of oxygen and electrolytes (Sodium – Na) in sample number 2 make it more…
and are known to have many important functions in the area of:
analytical chemistry (environmental),
Coordination compounds has many applications in qualitative and quantitative chemical analysis.
For the detection and estimation by classical and instrumental methods of analysis, the basis are provided by the common colour reactions given by metal ions.
•Examples of such reagents include EDTA, DMG (dimethylglyoxime),…
Determining the Chemical Formula of a Hydrate
Experiment required: copper (II) sulfate hydrate, 2 crucibles, electronic mass balance, bunsen burner, iron ring, crucible tong, clay triangle, wire gauze, retort stand,
1. Individuals should wear goggles on and tied hair back before the experiment started.
2. The mass of an empty crucible cover was measured.
3. Approximately 2.00g of copper (II) sulfate hydrate samples was taken out and put into the crucible.
4. The mass of the crucible…
