The objective of this research is to extract essential oils from M. koenigii leaves by using ultrasonic-assisted solvent extraction method. The major constituent of M. koenigii has been reported as caryophyllene and 3-carene which is responsible for the aroma and flavor. This research has focused on the influence of ultrasonic, various natures of solvents, sonication times and also drying method towards the extraction of M.koenigii essential oil. Two types of solvents are used in this research which is ethanol and hexane. In this research, the methods of drying, grinding, extraction, separation and analysis are used and the sample is separated from solvents by using a rotary evaporator to get the essential oil. The sample was analyzed by using a GC-MS to identify the component of M. koenigii essential oil. In this research, the most suitable solvent to produce higher percentage yield is by using ethanol (ultrasonic-assisted solvent extraction of fresh leaves for 30 minutes) and the percentage of oil yield also increased with increasing the time. The major component in M. koenigii leaves is caryophyllene and hexane on the other hand is the best solvent to be used to extract caryophyllene

...EXTRACTION Reyes, Chaia Alyssa M., Suelo, Bernadette Ann A., Velches, Manna Angelica F., Vicente, Calvin Jaron B. ABSTRACT Caffeine was extracted from coffee beans by multiple extraction technique. 5.0009 grams of coffee beans was boiled in a solution of 4.4 g. anhydrous sodium carbonate and 100ml distilled water and was extracted three times using 20 ml of dichloromethane. The residue was collected by decanting the mixture of organic extract and anhydrous sodium sulfate and evaporating it to dryness. The percentage yield was computed by getting the ratio of the weight of the crude caffeine (residue) and weight of the coffee beans used. The percentage yield was 0.25%. I. INTRODUCTION Extractions are a way to separate a desired substance when it is mixed with others. The mixture is brought into contact with a solvent in which the substance of interest is soluble, but the other substances present are insoluble. There are two main types of extraction in chemistry namely: Liquid-liquid extraction (also known as Solvent extraction or Partitioning), which is further divided into two types (simple and multiple), and Solid-liquid extraction.

Dna Extraction

...Extraction of DNA from an Onion Molecular biologists and biochemists are involved with research in finding out as much as possible about the DNA in plants and animals. Although DNA was discovered in the 1950’s, there still remains a lot to be known about it, especially how it is used to determine the physical traits that we all have, and how it regulates the workings of the body. We should always remember that DNA is just a chemical named deoxyribonucleic acid. Because it is a chemical, we can do reactions with it just like we can work with any other chemical. In this lab, we will use the chemical properties of DNA to extract it from the cells of onions. Experiment: Note: You should write all observations from this lab in the observation section on the third page of this lab. These observations will account for a large part of your grade, so be neat and complete! 1) Prepare a buffer solution by pouring the following into a clean 250 mL Erlenmeyer flask: - 120 mL of water (distilled water, if available) - 1.5 grams of sodium chloride (table salt) - 5.0 grams of baking soda (sodium hydrogen carbonate) - 5.0 mL of shampoo or liquid laundry detergent What buffer solutions are used for: This buffer solution is used in this lab for several reasons.

The Process of Metal Extraction from Ore

...The Process of Metal Extraction from Ore Metals are produced when metal oxides have their oxygen removed. The process of metal extraction from ore is dependent on the reactivity of the metal. Highly reactive metals are extracted by electrolysis. In order of decreasing reactivity, these metals are potassium, sodium, calcium, magnesium and aluminum. These metals are higher in the reactivity series than carbon. Electrolysis is costly as it requires a great amount of energy. The ore must have high melting points allowing ions to move in oxidation and reduction. Electrolysis is a way of splitting up the compound using electrical energy. A direct current is used. Electricity flows through a conducting liquid containing the compound to be broken down such as aluminum oxide. There is a reduction at the negative cathode electrode and an oxidation at the positive anode electrode. Aluminum forms at the negative cathode (metal) and sinks to the bottom of the electrolysis tank where it is collected and run into moulds to cool down before use. Oxygen gas is formed at the anode (non-metal) as a waste gas and burned away. Less reactive metals such as zinc, iron, tin and lead are extracted from ore by reduction of the oxide with carbon or carbon monoxide. A blast furnace with continuous, high temperatures is used. As with iron, carbon monoxide reduces the iron oxide. Silica in the iron ore is removed by reacting with lime from limestone. Calcium silicate,......

Caffeine Extraction

...possibly causing addiction, insomnia, and headaches. Using the proper extraction methods, the caffeine within a tea bag could potentially be isolated to yield a pure solid; the mass of this solid would reflect the actual yield of caffeine in the tea. Introduction Caffeine belongs to a large class of organic compounds called alkaloids, which vary widely in structure and reactivity. These nitrogen based compounds are found in plants and often taste bitter 2. Alkaloids can be found in different forms such as nicotine, morphine, or cocaine. The structure of caffeine is shown below along with the purine ring. Figure 1: Structure of purine and caffeine Caffeine is found in a number of foods and beverages. Such has chocolate, soda, and over the counter medication. The purpose of this experiment was to isolate caffeine that is found in tea by using the techniques of extracting, separating, drying, and sublimation. To do so, caffeine must be introduced to a solvent that is both volatile and insoluble to water; a perfect example is dichloromethane. Caffeine has a greater affinity for dichloromethane and will easily dissolve in this solvent over water; however, caffeine is not the only organic substance found in tea that is capable of reacting with dichloromethane. Along with caffeine, tea contains another substance, tannins, which are capable of dissolving in water as well 2. This is due to dipole-dipole interactions that result from the greater polarity of caffeine and......

Pepper Seed Dna Extraction

...Pepper Seed DNA Extraction Biochem lab: CHE 452L marisol gomez Pepper Seed DNA Extraction Biochem lab: CHE 452L marisol gomez 2015 2015 INTRODUCTION The jalapeno is a member of the capsicum family, along with many other peppers. The usual methods for characterization of different pepper species are based on their morphological and physiological traits, however this many not always be enough. For peppers, their traits are influenced by things like their genotype or their specific environment. Genomic markers can allow for a more direct comparison of closely related individuals (Ansari and Khan, 2012). In our case we focus on DNA extraction. The two basic parts of a DNA extraction procedure include the breaking of the cell walls to expose the DNA and the use of enzymes to remove contaminants. The DNA is analyzed for purity by taking the absorbance. The pure DNA is then visualized by gel electrophoresis. The DNA extraction of plant seeds is difficult because of their cell wall. The method used to break the cell wall includes grinding the seeds with liquid nitrogen. The addition of DNAzol is used to isolate genomic DNA (Chomczynski et al. 1997). Restriction enzymes are necessary to fragment patterns of the DNA and in turn making it easier to analyze the DNA through gel electrophoresis. BACKGROUND The purpose of our experiment is to extract the DNA from pepper seeds to be able to compare and contrast the similarities in their DNA. The extraction of DNA from a plant......

Acid and Base Extraction

...Acid and Base Extraction Finding the unknown compound by extraction using their conjugate acid and base. Huda Introduction The purpose of the acid and base extraction lab is to determine the unknown mixture that contains three compounds which is made of an organic acid, an organic base and an organic neutral. To find out what the unknown compounds are found in the mixture, a series of techniques are done. To extract the compounds from the given unknown mixture, they were changed back to their conjugate acids by adding a strong acid and back to their conjugate bases by adding a strong base. The first technique is called extraction in which organic Bases and organic acids are separated from neutral compounds and from each other by using an aqueous solution of different PH values. Compounds that contain less than six carbons are not affected by changing the pH value. The compounds are extracted based on the solubility properties of the acid, bases and salts. The unknown compound will be dissolved in dichloromethane and HCl will be added and extraction will occur by mixing the solution and removing the aqueous layer. The extracted aqueous layer will be isolated by adding NaOH which will make the solution basic that will lead it to precipitate. The organic acid will be extracted NaOH to the dichloromethane solution and separating the aqueous solution. The majority of organic carboxylic acids are highly soluble in dilute NaOH since the acid gets deprotonated by the base......

The Analysis of Lipids Determination of Fat by Soxhlet Extraction

... The analysis of Lipids Determination of fat by Soxhlet Extraction and Determination of fat content in milk by Gerber method Introduction Lipids are molecular organic compounds, composed largely of carbon, oxygen and hydrogen and are essential for cell growth. Lipids are non-soluble in water and combine with carbohydrates and proteins to form the majority of all plant and animal cells. Lipids are transported through the body attached to protein and are an important element of food. Lipids are the third major micronutrient required for the body after carbohydrates and protein. Lipids are also a medical term for ‘fat’ and though all fats are lipids, not all lipids are fats. Lipids have many roles within the body, one of its main duties is to transport, absorb and digest the fat soluble vitamins A,D,E and K. They provide the most energy to the body, are used for energy storage, cell membrane development, and they protect vital organs. Other major purposes are that they insulate layers under the skin, provide vitamins, essential nutrients and fatty acids in the body. Fatty acids cannot be made by the body and are therefore fat is essential in the diet. In many foods the lipid components add to flavor perception, texture, mouth feel and appearance. (Intro to food Nutrition handout, 15/02/11) It is important to remember that although fat is essential, the body only requires 30% of daily calorie intake to come from fat. Over consumption of fats can lead to weight gain and...
