Other sources of starch e. Procedure for Fermentation only parts 1 and 2including a diagram of the fermentation apparatus. If you do not have 10 mL of distillate from the fractional distillation, use a smaller volume and note what that volume is.

As the yeast cells died and the fermentation process stopped, to make a more concentrated substance, the fermented solution was purified by both simple and fractional distillation techniques.

The condenser just needs to be resting on the second utility clamp, or you can also use an iron ring for this pupose. During batch fermentation, the rate of ethanol production per milligram of cell protein is maximal for a brief period early in this process and declines progressively as ethanol accumulates in the surrounding broth.

Each boldfaced section name should be included in the report. Mass of empty 10 mL Beaker: The biggest source of error in this lab is probably the incorrect measurement of the volumes used to determine the densities that are, in turn, used to determine the percentage of ethanol present.

Appropriate physical and hazard data for all of the substances used and produced in the lab including sucrose, calcium hydroxide, and ethanol. The difference between the ethanol concentration of the simple distillation product and the first fraction product shows how the fractional distillation was able to increase the ethanol concentration significantly through the use of the column.

Calculated or determined items go in the Calculation section with their associated calculation. The dominant ethanol feedstock in warmer regions is sugarcane. In all cases, fermentation must take place in a vessel that allows carbon dioxide to escape but prevents outside air from coming in.

Brandy and eaux de vie e.

Synthesis of Ethanol by Simple and Fractional Distillation

Circle and identify the portions of your fractional distillation curve that correspond to the collection of the water-ethanol azeotrope and of essentially pure water. The starchy crop with highest energy content per acre is cassavawhich grows in tropical countries. Note whether or not the trend is in the expected direction.

Azeotrope, which means that the two compounds are miscible and boil at a constant temperature.

Ethanol fermentation

Do this neatly and give it enough room--crammed into the margin is not good enough. Lab Notes Please take care with the condensers.

The yeast used for processing cassava is Endomycopsis fibuligera, sometimes used together with bacterium Zymomonas mobilis. Whenever possible use the heating mantle size that matches the flask size.Synthesis of Ethanol by Fermentation of Sucrose Name: Nazanin Ahmadieh Lab Partner: Yasaman Ahmadieh Date: 11/15/10 Purpose: Using the biochemical %(2).

The distillate contained mostly ethanol, but it also contained water because ethanol and water form an azeotropic mixture consisting of 95% ethanol and 5% water by weight.

This experiment was a moderate success since ethanol was produced from the fermentation of sugar. history of fermentation, whereby sugar (sucrose) is converted to ethanol by the action of yeast, is also a history of chemistry.

The word "gas" was coined by van Helmont in to describe the bubbles produced in fermentation. Leeuwenhoek observed yeast cells with his microscope in The chemical equations below summarize the fermentation of sucrose into ethanol ().

Alcoholic fermentation converts one mole of glucose into two moles of ethanol and two moles of carbon dioxide, producing two moles of ATP in the process. Abstract Lactic acid is an important product arising from the anaerobic fermentation of sugars.

It is used in the pharmaceutical, cosmetic, chemical, and food industries as well as. Appropriate physical and hazard data for all of the substances used and produced in the lab including sucrose, calcium hydroxide, and ethanol.
