    reaction between peroxomonosulphate with Lactic acid was studied in the presence of Mn(II) at alkaline pH. The reaction followed first order with respect to peroxomonosulphate. The rate of the reaction was studied under pseudo first order condition and found to increases with the [Mn(II)] and lactic acid. Thermodynamic parameters were calculated and reported. Based on the results a rate equation, kinetic scheme and a most probable mechanism has been predicted. Keywords: Alpha hydroxy acid, Lactic acid, Peroxomonosulphate, Manganese (II). I.INTRODUCTION Peroxomonosulphate (PMS) is a versatile oxidant (Lavanya et.al,2015) and is widely used in environmental applications (Edwards et.al., 1989) such as the decontamination (Johnson…

    The activities alcohol fermentation and lactic acid fermentation allowed each group to gain a visual understanding of the way fermentation works. In the unrestricted alcohol fermentation part of the activity, each group had their own glass fermentation chamber to pour a solution in. In my group’s fermentation chamber we used starch solution alone. In the alcohol fermentation groups had a total of eight combinations to put into test tubes. In the lactic acid fermentation groups were able to make…

    respiration produces an oxygen debt that is the amount of oxygen needed to oxidise lactic acid to carbon dioxide and water” (http://www.bbc.co.uk/schools/gcsebitesize/science/add_aqa/respiration/respirationrev4.shtml). “Anaerobic respiration cannot go on for more than a few seconds as the lactic acid builds up in the muscles and is said to cause a cramp or at least fatigue and some soreness. Muscles become tired during…

    that include, agility, anaerobic capacity and muscular power. The dominant energy system that squash players use is the Lactic Acid System. The fitness component Agility is the ability of the body to remain balanced whilst changing direction. It is vital for squash players to be agile. Agility is used in squash when the player changes direction constantly to get close enough to the ball to be able to hit it. The opposition will always hit the ball where the other player is not,…

    mutans lives under acidic conditions and “becomes the dominant bacteria with permanent reduced pH”.6 S. mutans metabolism improves under low pH unlike other species in plaque. With this ability S. mutans can maintain or decrease the pH of the environment which creates a cycle that is favorable for itself and unfavorable for others in the oral mouth.6 Conclusion. We discussed (a) the history of Streptococcus mutans, (b) how S. mutans gets into our mouth, (c) and how S. mutans causes dental…

    to increase and stay neutral, which will in turn address the effects of acidosis, such as thiamin deficiency. Another project that was also focused on rumen acidosis was proposed by S. Roy, J. Qui, and V. Reyes, and was title “Reducing Lactic Acidosis in Cow Rumen”. This group is seeking to introduce the gene lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) into E. coli so that lactate can be broken down to energy source. However, because certain level of lactic acid is needed to help with the overall fermentation…

    In chapter 14 it talks about the training for energy fitness. Your body continuously needs energy to power your muscle. Energy basically comes from the food we eat in order to become fuel for our body and this is distributed all over the body in order to create work. It also talks about ATP. Adenosine triphosphate is the only fuel a cell can use to contract muscle, build new tissue and transports minerals and waste throughout the body. This chapter also talks about the anaerobic system. I talks…

    Mutans begin with an abnormal white spot on the surface of the tooth. The abnormal white spot on the tooth is a sign demineralization of the enamel is starting to develop(S Baron 1996). They feed off of inorganic sugars producing lactic acid that destroys tooth enamel. Eventually, if untreated the tooth will further demineralize and turn brown resulting in a cavity. The tooth will become extremely sensitive to hot and cold…

    Carnosine Supplements

    When beta-alanine is ingested, it turns into the molecule carnosine, which acts as an acid buffer in the body2. Carnosine is stored in cells and released in response to drops in ph2. Increased stores of carnosine can protect against diet-induced drops in pH (which might occur from ketone production in ketosis, for example), as well as offer protection from exercise-induced lactic acid production2. Effectiveness based on scientific evidence shows that beta alanine supplementation did improve…
