The copper atoms of biuret solution (cuso 4 and naoh) will react with several peptide bonds on polypeptides, producing a color change from blue to a deep violet or blue color oftentimes a light pink color may result in the presence of small peptide chains. Lugol's solution can be used to test for the presence of polysaccharides or starch in the presence of starch, lugol's solution will change color from amber to a dark blue. Determine the macromolecules present in an unknown solution essay sample every living thing is dependent on large complex molecules, known as macromolecules the objective of this lab was to correctly identify which macromolecules the unknown solution was comprised of using various substances as experimental controls. The resulting states and colors of the test tubes were as follows: the negative control water was clear and blue in color coconut milk was opaque with a dark orange precipitate in the bottom and orange through the rest of its solution karo syrup was opaque with a dark orange precipitate in the bottom and orange throughout its solution potato.
Biological molecules of life jessica leonard biology lab april 5, 2012 abstract this lab was done to test for macromolecules consisting of carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, and nucleic acids by using specific reagents to test for each. 1 macromolecules abstract: there are four broad classes of macromolecules that can be found in living systems each type of macromolecule has a characteristic structure and function in living organisms. The benedict's solution which tested for reducing sugar contains copper ions, reducing sugars reduce these copper ions in nature to cuprous oxide, and thus color change occurred for the solutions that tested positively.
Biological macromolecules lab report for later save and the iki solution is used to find the starch present a black color indicates the presence of starch. Starch reacts with iodine to make a purplish-black color. Starch macromolecules bring one food or drink to lab that you think benedict's solution is a blue solution that will change color in the presence of.
After observing the color change in the presence of each different macromolecule, students make predictions on the presence of each of these macromolecules in a solution then test for their presence grade levels 9-12 learning objectives 1. The iodine solution creates a blue-black color in the presence of starch, and when reacted with glycogen it gives a brown-blue color (last, 2004) other monosaccharaides and polysaccharides yield no color, as they do not have any presence of starch or glycogen in them when reacted with other solutions the color stays the same as the reagent. So the water's reaction with the indicators can represent the other solutions which didn't have the four macromolecules dissolved in them also it was to show the most natural reaction and colour change with the indicators without any other chemicals affecting the results.
All living things contain organic macromolecules: lipids, proteins, carbohydrates and nucleic acids characteristic for these organic molecules is that they are made up of only a small number of elements: carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, and to smaller amounts nitrogen, phosphorus and sulfur. Solutions with a ph less than 7 are said to be acidic and solutions with a ph greater than 7 are basic or alkaline ph measurements are important in medicine, biology, chemistry, food science, environmental science, oceanography, civil engineering and many other applications. 1 has a color change with benedict's solution 2 has a color change with iodine 3 its monomer is a monosaccharide 4 its monomer is an amino acid. See all macromolecules acs editors'' choice articles view one new peer-reviewed research article from any acs journal, selected daily, and made open access based on recommendations by acs journal scientific editors from around the world.

Honors biology students experiment with different unknown solutions to figure out what nutrients they are made out of using indicator tests for glucose, starch, protein and lipid, this can serve as a good introduction to living organisms and their functions and characteristics in real life. Put different food solutions in each cup, eg corn starch in water, flour in water, milk, and water using the dropper, add a drop or two of the iodine solution to each cup place a slice of a potato on a paper towel atop a paper plate and add a drop of the iodine solution to the potato slice. 6+ml 1% glucose solution 1 bottle 6 macromolecule has a characteristic structure and function in living organisms you can use your transmits a brown color.
Macromolecule reagent color change sugar biuret reagent green, orange, or red color protein sudan iii blue-black color lipid iodine red or orange color starch benedict's solution blue-violet color 2. Macromolecules bcm261/bcm262 anonymous student #2 aim the purpose of this lab was to use the scientific method to identify an unknown solution, based on the reactions (ie color changes) of known solutions with indicator solutions.
Table 1: solutions and color reactions for benedict's test and iodine test tube solution benedict's color reaction iodine color reaction a 10 drops of onion juice. When this solution is added to a substance and boiled, it will turn orange if monosaccharides are present lugol's iodine solution this solution will turn an indigo color when in the presence of polysaccharides, such as starch. 3 test for the presence of starch: 1 clean the four test tubes thoroughly and prepare them as listed above 2 add 3 drops of iodine 3 in the presence of starch, iodine changes to a navy blue/black color.
