test-glucose, sucrose starch,carbohy.proteins quantitatively

Postby snezka18 » Sat Apr 03, 2010 3:59 pm

Hello!

Its Me again, what a nag am I hehe.

I done more research and now I found out that you can do titration to test how much glucose is in the solution, i get this part now. But i need to test starch, carbohydrates and proteins quantitatively as well, so i am not sure, are there other tests for that?
and if i get it right you just basically time how long it takes for the solution to decolourise. and put the results in a graph but how can the graph tell u the concentration if you are just timing it? this is very complicated topic indeed!!!
hope someone can help me, i would very much appreciate it!!

hey m no scientist but one question...why cant u just do colorimetry or use a spectrophotometer for quantitative analysis?? is it coz its like not accurate or is it coz titration is easier?? n how does titration work here??

for proteins there are plenty of measurements (look for Bradford e.g.), for starch you could use colorimetric determination with iodine

Cis or trans? That's what matters.
