Oil Saturation Lab

An informative introduction and 16 pre-lab questions prepare biologists and biochemists to analyze the double bonds in fatty acids. Using an iodine absorption test, they will be able to order a series of four oils by the amount of hydrogen bonds contained in the molecules. A complete lab sheet provides a place to record and review the data. Each lab group shares their findings with the rest of the class in order to find the class average.
