Detection of Biological Molecules
Detection of Biological Molecules Introduction: Without carbon, nitrogen, hydrogen, sulfur, oxygen and phosphorus, life wouldn\'t exist. These are the most abundant elements in living organisms. These elements are held together by covalent bonds, ionic bonds, hydrogen bonds, and disulfide bonds. Covalent bonds are especially strong, thus, are present in monomers, the building blocks of life. These monomers combine to make polymers, which is a long chain of monomers strung together. Biological mo
Diverrsity of Plants
Diverrsity of Plants
Diverrsity of Plants Plants evolved more than 430 million years ago from multicellular green algae. By 300 million years ago, trees had evolved and formed forests, within which the diversification of vertebrates, insects, and fungi occurred. Roughly 266,000 species of plants are now living. The two major groups of plants are the bryophytes and the vascular plants; the latter group consists of nine divisions that have living members. Bryophytes and ferns require free water so that sperm can swim

Acetylation of Ferrocene 17. October 1996 Experiment #7 Introduction In this lab we will be utilizing the Friedel Crafts process of acetylation of ferrocene. Ferrocene is an atom of iron bounded by two aromatic rings. We will use some reagents that will cause the ferrocene to add either one acetyl group to an aromatic ring or add two acetyl groups to each of the aromatic rings. In order to determine how well this process had worked we employed: IR spectra analysis, column chromatography, and a l

Before long we will be forced to turn somewhere else for energy. There are many possibilities such as hydroelectric energy, nuclear energy, wind energy, solar energy and geothermal energy to name a few. Each one of these choices has its pros and cons. Hydroelectric power tends to upset the ecosystems in rivers and lakes. It affects the fish and

Gaia and Plate Tectonics
Gaia and Plate Tectonics Geologists and biologists have traditionally thought of life as having adapted to changes in the environmental conditions over time, but a new view of the earth derived from the Gaia theory has emerged. Many scientists now look at the entire earth as an organism, where living and nonliving matter evolve together maintaining an environment nearly ideal for life. The Gaia theory maintains that soon after the formation of life, and organisms began to change the environment,

WATER: IT MOVES THE WORLD Water does move the world, but not always in a noticeable or dramatic way. Erosion is a key element in making the world possible to live in. Erosion forms the valleys, literally dissolves solid rock, moves 3 ton boulders, and builds bridges. Water is the most abundant and therefore most powerful resource on the planet. Although water creates landmarks the size of the Grand Canyon, man cannot see the process, only the result. RAIN EROSION According to Rain Erosion: graph

A group of ranges closely related in form, origin, and alignment is a mountain system; an elongated group of systems is a chain; and a complex of ranges, systems, and chains continental in extent is a cordillera, zone, or belt.(MsBs95W32).
