IB Chemistry: Hydrolysis of starch

This is a relatively simple practical that can be used to illustrate some of the chemistry covered in the Option B: Biochemistry sub-topic B.4 Carbohydrates. It is suitable for both Standard and Higher Level students, and gives some good chemistry to explain involving the structure and hydrolysis of starch and the redox reactions associated with the test for reducing sugars. Many chemists may be more familiar with Fehling’s...
