Working with Immobilized Enzymes or Microscopic Organisms
9th - 12th
New ReviewLet the lab be a catalyst to learn about enzymes. Scholars create alginate beads filled with yeast. As part of an investigation into enzymes, they see how these beads provide a catalyst to the reaction of glucose into ethanol.
Lab 2: Nanocatalysts Clean Your Car Emissions
9th - 12th
New ReviewSurface area certainly surfaces as a variable for chemical reaction rates. Scholars perform an experiment to discover how the size of catalysts affect the rate of a chemical reaction. They record their results in tables and graphs to...
