Investigation – Storage conditions of Bleach & it’s relation with temperature.

Title/Research Question:
‘How does temperature effect the concentration of chlorate ions in bleach?’
Aim:
The aim of this experiment was to investigate the optimum temperature storage conditions of bleach’s stored at different temperatures.
Introduction:
Chlorine bleaches are made by dissolving chlorine in sodium hydroxide solution. They have a number of uses as they are used to remove colors, whiten or disinfectant via oxidation. Many bleaches have strong bactericidal properties, and are used for disinfecting and sterilizing as they contain chlorate ions. Sodium Thiosulphate is used in the pH testing of bleach substances as it neutralizes the color-removing effect of the bleach and makes it feasible to test the pH of the bleach solution.
Data collection and Processing:
In this experiment we have been provided with bleach that has been stored at different temperatures-25, 35, 45, 55 and 650C for 3 weeks (the same volume of bleach and storage conditions have been followed for each sample, except for changing the temperature.)
Data Table:

    Experiment VI: Oxidation of Isoborneol with Bleach Purpose: In this experiment, Green chemical procedures were applied to oxidize isoborneol to camphor using bleach (NaOCl), rather than the tradition chromium-based oxidizing reagents. The camphor was then purified using the process of sublimation. Procedure: Using a 50-mL Erlenmeyer flask, 1.316 g (8.5 mmol) isoborneol and 1.0 mL (17 mmol) glacial acetic acid were stirred vigorously with a magnetic stir plate. A volume of 1.7 mL NaOCl…

    An investigation into the effects of temperature on enzyme action An enzyme is a biological catalyst that speeds up the rate of reaction in certain biological functions. They play a vital role in many aspects of human physiology and are necessary for the functioning of a number of systems, for example in the digestive system to help to break down food. All enzymes have a unique active site that can fit on to a particular molecular arrangement on a target substrate; a substance e.g. carbohydrate…

    Vitamin C Molecule Investigation Thomas Philpott Introduction Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is an essential component of human nutrition, as it is an antioxidant that the body requires. Having a deficiency in Vitamin C can lead to scurvy, a disease characterized by abnormalities in human bones and teeth. Fruits and vegetables are common sources of Vitamin C, notably oranges and citrus fruits. Cooking and the application of heat destroy the vitamin so such fruits must be raw in order to obtain the…

    Introduction. The following is an experiment into temperature change in an exothermic reaction taking place between Sodium hydroxide (NaOH) and Hydrochloric acid (HCl) and also how the concentration of the acid will vary these results. The characteristics of the reaction feature a neutralisation, an energy change (shown as a temperature change) that is usually exothermic (gives out heat). The reaction of neutralisation is exothermic because of the bonds being broken and made in the reaction. When…

    This experiment investigated the effects of bleach and dye on the tensile strength of hair. The hypothesis stated that the healthy, untouched hair would be able to hold the heaviest amount of weight. The dyed hair would hold more weight than the bleached hair, but less than the normal hair. The bleached hair would be the weakest, holding the least amount of weight. The results supported this hypothesis. This is because the strong chemicals that were applied to the hair, penetrated, stripped and changed…
