Testing For Carbohydrates 20/09/21

The Year 12 AS Biology students carried out their first PAG (Practical Activity Group) to test for reducing and non-reducing sugars. This practical activity was conducted to concretise content taught about Biological Molecule-testing for carbohydrates. 

Students tested three unknown samples for both reducing and non-reducing sugars using the Benedict’s reagent solution, hydrochloric acid and sodium hydrogen carbonate. Following this, students recorded their results and made their conclusions. This was a fun activity enjoyed by all.
