Global Warming

In 1950, the matter was entirely peripheral, existing only in the minds of science fiction writers and a few unheralded scientists. In 1990 it was still, to most, utterly implausible. By 2001 a handful of plucky voices were expressing the opinion that it somehow COULD be possible. Then, almost overnight, other voices clamoured to suggest… View Article

Reduce,Reuse and Reclycle

Practicing these three steps (Reduce, Reuse and Recycle) helps us lessen the environmental impact that manufacturing and distributing products have on our environment. Reducing waste is the most effective 3 R practice, because it means not producing unnecessary waste in the first place – So there is zero impact on the environment. If we reduce… View Article

Aldol Synthesis of Dibenzalacetone

The goal of this experiment was to synthesize dibenzalacetone by aldol synthesis. The name ‘Aldol synthesis’ was taken from the words ‘aldehyde and alcohol’. This is because the product of this reaction contains both an aldehyde and alcohol. The carbon-carbon bond-forming reaction is referred to as aldol addition. An aldol condensation yields many species of… View Article
