Biginelli Reaction – Lab Report

Biginelli Reaction By: Mark Roberto   Postlab Questions Questions 1, 3, and 4 on separate paper. 2) 3,4-dihydropyrimidones are calcium channel blockers. This means that they block calcium ion flow through membrane channels in cells.[1] Results Using the Bignelli reaction, acetoacetamide, benzaldehyde, and urea were reacted in a 1:1:1 ratio to synthesize a 3,4-dihydropyrimidinone that will be called “product”. The limiting reagent was determined to be the acetoacetamide, which was 3.936 mM (0.3979g/101.10g/mol). For the urea, 3.996 mM were used […]

Measuring Respiration of Germinating and Non-germinating Peas

Measuring Respiration of Germinating and Non-germinating Peas By: Krunal Patel Introduction           Living cells require transfusions of energy from outside sources to perform their many tasks – for example, assembling polymers, pumping substances across membranes, moving, and reproducing (Campbell, and Reece 162). Heterotrophs obtains its energy for its cells by eating plants that makes it own food (Autotrophs); some animals feed on other organisms that eat plants. The most beneficial catabolic pathway in an organism is cellular respiration, in which oxygen […]
