1: Extraction of Caffeine from Tea The primary objective of the experiment is to separate the caffeine from tea leaves. The mixture of tea and the calcium carbonate is separated from tea leaves by vacuum filtration. The solvent used in extraction of caffeine is dichloromethane. Anhydrous magnesium sulfate is added to the dichloromethane solution to dehydrate the mixture. The dichloromethane is then separated from the mixture in the rotary evaporator. Figure 1: The structure of caffeine is very
RGP Introduction An extraction in the technique used to remove certain substance from a mixture of substances. This is a useful technique to remove the caffeine from coffee, teas, etc. making them de-caffeinated, which is a good for people who can’t have caffeine. Aim: This investigation aims to extract caffeine from tea leaves Equipment/Chemicals • 3 Tea bags • 500 ml separating funnel • Beaker (250ml) • 2x 100ml beakers • Distilled water • Sodium sulphate • Spatula • Measuring
Experiment 11B: Isolation of Caffeine from a Tea Bag Abstract The objective of this experiment is to successfully extract pure caffeine from tea leaves. This experiment isolates the tea leaves within the Lipton tea bag and the mass of the caffeine within the leaves. Using isolation, extraction, and sublimation techniques, it is possible to obtain pure caffeine. The amount of pure caffeine recovered from this experiment was .0081g. Because the tea bag original weight was 55mg or .055g, the
ability to isolate caffeine from tea leaves was questioned and was found to be successful in this experiment. This was achieved by extracting caffeine, separating other natural substances and sublimating the existing caffeine. The weight of the caffeine isolated from the tea leaves was .0186g; which is a 33.8% recovery of the original material of caffeinated tea leaves. Introduction: This experiment’s purpose is to extract the caffeine that consists in a small portion of tea leaves. The theory
Isolating Caffeine from Tea Oct. 23, 2012 Abstract The purpose of this lab was to determine the concentration of caffeine from tea leaves through a simple extraction and sublimation process. With added ingredients including dichloromethane (DCM) and sodium carbonate to help separate and extract caffeine, the mass of the caffeine isolated was determined and compared to other products containing the same ingredient. Introduction Caffeine is found in many dietary products
measure the caffeine in a tea bag by isolating caffeine from the tea bag and to know the amount of caffeine present in a tea bag by using extraction technique, centrifugation techniques, and by purifying caffeine by sublimation.

Isolation of Caffeine from Teabags by: Ma. Jessa Princess T. Romero John Jezreel Pardinas Submitted to: Mrs. Georgina Diopenes Abstract In this experiment, Caffeine was isolated from Tea, using hot water, sodium carbonate, dichloromethane, and was then purified using sublimation. The crude weight of caffeine was 0.048 grams. The experimental melting point in the 1st trial was 210 0C – 218 0C, in the 2nd trial was 212 0C – 220 0C. Introduction Caffeine is a molecule that is similar to the purine
Tea leaves and coffee contain a number of components in which caffeine is one. The extraction procedure used to isolate caffeine takes into consideration the physical and chemical properties of these components in determining an appropriate method. Our first step uses hot water extraction which is quite similar to the idea behind brewing coffee. A cup of coffee contains more caffeine than a cup of tea because coffee is grounded up increasing the surface area. The increased surface area and filtration
Organic Chem. Lab EXPERIMENT 11: ISOLATION OF CAFFEINE FROM TEA LEAVES COMPOUND PROCEDURE Preparation of Tea Solution: We started out experiment by weighing out 5.023g of tealeaves and 2.008g of calcium carbonate powder. These two substances were mixed with 50ml of water and heated under gentle reflux in a round-bottom flask using a condenser apparatus. The hot solution was then filtered and the filtrate was collected and cooled. Extraction and Drying: Using a separatory funnel, the
