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 weight percentage recovery of this experiment was 14.7%.

They are five artificial sweeteners available in the United States: saccharin, aspartame, sucralose, neotame, and acesulfame potassium. Along with these five artificial sweeteners, there are other herbal/natural sweeteners on the market like stevia, sorbitol, lactitol, and xylitol. Saccharin is a derivative of the basic substance, benzoic sulfinide. It has no food energy and is 300 times sweeter than sucrose, but has an unpleasant bitter aftertaste, especially at high concentrations. In many cases it is used to sweeten products such as drinks, candies, medicines, and toothpaste.
This is when therapies include changes in the diet, the practice of yoga, and a strong emphasis on the connection of mind, body, and spirit (Ellis-Christensen, 2011). There are very little negative side effects associated with alternative medicine as many people are able to purchase herbs, vitamins, and other dietary supplements over-the-counter.

In this report I will test whether it will take more or less baking powder to neutralize lemon juice compared to vinegar. Lemon juice and vinegar are examples of acids, and baking powder is a base. Citric acid gives lemons their sharp or sour taste. After you mix lemon juice and baking powder together, they will produce CO2. The pH level of vinegar varies from 2.40 - 3.40, when the pH level of lemon juice is 2.00-2.60.6 The pH level of baking powder is 9.7 pH paper reacts chemically with acids or bases.

It helps me, there’s no denying it. I just wish that could be acknowledged. Interesting enough, there are actual studies of cannabis and the benefitting effects that it places among people. In 2006, the Scripps Research Institute in California discovered that THC, the active ingredient in cannabis, happens to slow the acceleration of Alzheimer’s disease more effectively than commercial drugs. Dr Robert J. DeLorenzo along with other researchers at Virginia Commonwealth University discovered that natural cannabis “plays a critical role in controlling spontaneous seizures in epilepsy.” That’s only two studies that I’m naming, there happens to be a wealth out there showing that cannabis is linked to beneficial occurrences to those in need.
Some of its characteristics are that it has large green leaves, hollow square stems, and white flowers with purple calyces, which similarly characterizes the sage plant. Recently, this unique plant has become popular among people, especially young adults and adolescents ("Salvia divinorum”, 2008). Since Salvia divinorum is an ethnobotanical plant, it can produce changes in perception, hallucinations, and other psychologically induced changes, therefore engaging people’s attention for its recreational use. The psychoactive component (the element that produces hallucinogenic effects) of Salvia divinorum is Salvinorin A and is currently the most potent naturally occurring hallucinogen in the world (Salvia divinorum, 2006). Salvinorin A induces an intense, short lived hallucinogenic experience qualitatively distinct from that induced by the classical hallucinogens lysergic acid diethylamide, psilocybin, and mescaline (Chavkin, 2004).
Urinary Tract Infection in men are not as common as in women but can be very serious when they do occur. This research project shows that we can produce a herbal medicine out of Bignay fruits for Urinary Tract Infections. That we can produce this particular medicine with limited financial cost and little of our time. Because this particular remedy are made of natural fruit extract from Bignay “antidesma bunius,” it is safe to use. The fruit extract of this fruit has cytotoxic properties, which could help for person with urinary tract infections and other intestinal problems.
