  • Iodine Test for Starch
    Iodine Test for Starch Introduction and Hypothesis: In this experiment, we used iodine to test for starch in certain solutions. Iodine separates starch from polysaccharides, monosaccharides, and disaccharides. Starch is a curled polymer of glucose and iodine interacts with molecules, which changes...
