By definition a colligative property is a solution property (a property of mixtures) If colligative properties depend on the amount of the solute in the solvent, then. Colligative properties. CH General Chemistry, Spring , Boston University . There are four colligative properties. • vapor-pressure lowering. • boiling-point. Chapter 16 Colligative properties of solutions. In the last chapter we dealt with pure solids and liquids. In this chapter we will deal with what happens to a liquid .

The purpose of this Activity is to determine which of the ions in a series of ionic compounds the cation or the anion is responsible for the colors in a simple flame test. Students will perform flame test experiments using cotton swabs and a Bunsen In this note an attempt is made to bring into an integrated system the several colligative properties of importance to physiology and biochemistry.

The writer of this letter submits a direct and practical approach for the removal of an assumption in deriving freezing-point depression and boiling-point elevation formulas.

Among the properties of solutions such as boiling point elevation is a little-known colligative property described in by Walther Nernst and called "reduction of solubility". In common with the other colligative properties, it can be used for This simple lab demonstrates chemical transformations in and the conservation of copper. A laboratory experiment is presented in which the freezing point depression is analyzed using milk as solution. The nature of milk as a mixture of different solutes makes it a suitable probe to learn about colligative properties.

For younger audiences, students were asked what differences they observed in color, how easy the solution was to stir, etc. Depending on the education level of the group, chemical structures for salt and sugar could be provided and students could be asked to compare the sizes of these molecules.

Alternatively, structures for different sugars sucrose, fructose, etc.

Prior to performing the experiments, students could be asked to make hypotheses regarding their expectations on the experimental outcomes. Is it the size of the molecule or the concentration of the molecule that impacts the properties we observe as an outcome? Although salt solutions are not relevant to caramel sauce, including this as a control or experimental comparison could be useful.


This observation contributed to a discussion regarding colligative properties. In this example, the solution with increasing concentrations of sugar required higher temperatures to achieve boiling. That was because the solute decreases the vapor pressure of the solution compared to the pure solvent.

Boiling point elevation and freezing point depression were compared and contrasted. Students were familiar with the concept of adding salt to ice on roads, and the concept of freezing point depression was reviewed again during the ice cream portion of Activity 3.

The use of either salt or sugar in these examples illustrated the nature of colligative properties—that the number of dissolved particles, but not their identity influenced the observed effect. This point could be extended with physical models or images which illustrate how molecules in solution change colligative properties like boiling point. The students also learned that sweetness is not always the sole reason for adding sugar to food products; it is also required for caramelization.

Including equations that relate the boiling point to other properties such as vapor pressure and solute concentration would be a great way of comparing properties of real solutions to those of ideal solutions and the ideal gas law Salzman ; Bodner Activity 2 Maraschino cherries: how salt and sugar solutions extended the shelf life Materials: Fresh fruit grapes, cherries, etc.

Sugar concentration of fresh fruit juice, brines, and syrups were conveniently measured by a handheld refractometer. The refractive index of an aqueous sugar solution increases linearly with the concentration of sugar. As an introductory activity, participants first sorted various food items into categories based on shelf life and proper storage per manufacturer's guidelines, then measured and recorded the amount of soluble solids in those products.

After data collection, students learned that many preserved items have a higher sugar or salt concentration than their corresponding fresh product and that the increased levels of soluble solids lowers the solution's water activity and increases the osmotic pressure on microbial cells. The instructor may deem in necessary before introducing this experiment to offer a description of water activity for the students.

In this context, water activity described qualitatively as the amount of water in the food available to support the growth microorganisms. Instructors are not limited to using cherries; the activity works well with any fresh juicy fruit and the produce's corresponding preserved or brined form.

Grapes, raspberries, and blueberries, along with their analogous jams or preserves, all produce juicy samples that are easy to analyze and clean up. Instructors may also find helpful to sample other food products with low water activity such as honey to show a spectrum of sugar concentration, water activity and microbial inhibition.

Students should also compare the collected Brix data with the standard water activity data of food products and note which microorganisms are supported and can proliferate on water activity ranges Figure 2. Figure 2 Water activity ranges of food products that support microbial proliferation. Solid gray bars denote bacteria, double lined bars denote yeast and triple lined bars denote molds.

This activity afforded participants a chance to better understand the interactions between a solution's colligative properties and its ability to inhibit microbial growth.

This allowed individuals to recognize the proper storage of products and identify possible food spoilage opportunities. After going through the different stations, students were asked questions to reinforce the concepts they learned. These included: What is water activity? What ingredients reduce water activity?

What products have a low water activity? As a general trend, when a solution's level of soluble solids Brix increase, what happens to the solution's water activity?

What are reasons other than sweetness to add sugar to food? Using various food products, instructors explained that limiting the available water restricts microbial growth in and on the products Ray and Bhunia Although water activity was not measured directly, Brix soluble solids was used in these exercises because of the availability and cost effectiveness of a refractometer compared to a water activity meter.

Osmotic pressure, it was explained, may kill cells as a consequence of the concentration of solute that is sugar in the sugar brined cherries.

Water in the system would move across the permeable cell membrane to restore equilibrium and lyse the cell. Students were also asked about the differences in shelf life between several of the products they saw and if they could tell by sight, smell, or touch if a food was safe to eat that is if pathogens may be present. Activity 3 Ice cream: Solutions and mixtures that define the standard of identity. Materials: Images of ice cream products or empty containers, carrageenan, milk.

Expected learning outcomes At the completion of the activity, students will be able to: 1 explain the concept of standard of identity for a food product, 2 determine the source of nutrients from the ingredients list that is protein from skim milk, fat from cream, etc. Activity overview Students were given a package of various frozen desserts including a commercially available vanilla ice cream and a chocolate, no sugar added, reduced fat frozen dairy dessert. The standard of identity for ice cream was presented to students, who were then asked to determine if either of these products met the standard US FDA For the vanilla ice cream, which did meet the standard, students were asked to match the ingredients listed to the standard and to identify the functional properties they provided.

Some additives which provided a textural benefit were not recognized by students who did not initially know the function of these additives e. A small amount of carrageenan and milk was given to students to mix.

Depends only on number of particles of a

After a few minutes of mixing, the students compared the texture of the milk with carrageenan to milk without carrageenan. The students were prompted to draw carrageenan long chain of sugars and link it to another chain with calcium in the middle Figure 3 a.

This could be made more complex Figure 3 b depending on the student's level of understanding of chemical structures. Figure 3 a Simple illustration of carrageenan as two carbohydrate chains with linking calcium ions.

Discussion points The students were asked to list some of the sensorial attributes of ice cream creamy, frozen, vanilla, etc. After being given the two frozen food packages, the students were asked the following: What are the differences between the two?

The discussion started with the obvious: one is chocolate and one is vanilla, after which students were prompted to further investigate the labels.

After a student pointed out that one was not labeled as ice cream, students were asked to consider what they would feel like as consumers if they bought a product that did not possess the quality attributes they listed at the start of the exercise. From there, standard of identity was explained and students were provided with a list of attributes required by the standard. Students were asked why the chocolate product could not be sold as ice cream and why they felt standards of identity existed.

Students were then asked to describe the functional roles of the various ingredients on the ice cream label.

Why are both skim milk and cream on the ingredients list? What is the role of carrageenan? In addition to these, the students were asked to describe the differences between ice cream mix prior to freezing and the finished ice cream.

11.4 Colligative Properties

The idea was to help them understand that air is incorporated into the ice cream in order to make it smooth and increase volume. Depending on the focus of the course, instructors may elect to make comparisons between frozen yogurt and simply freezing yogurt.

Additionally, instructors should remind students of freezing point depression as a colligative property and relate it to ice cream. Less ice is formed at a given temperature because sugars and soluble minerals in the milk depress the freezing point.

Consequently, a softer texture is imparted to the ice cream Ebbing and Gammon Depending on the instructor and their familiarity with the ice cream making process, an online video demonstrating the process may be useful for students to help them conceptualize the production. The calcium from the milk interacts with the carrageenan and, together with the milk proteins, forms a complex network that traps the air within the ice cream when mixing.Solid gray bars denote bacteria, double lined bars denote yeast and triple lined bars denote molds.

Extrapolation from the cooling curves for ethyl alcohol Figures 3 resulted in freezing point temperatures of 1. These included: What is a solution? Remove the solid from the cold water and allow it to warm until the entire solid melted.

Freezing point of the following system is: What will be the ratio of observed lowering of freezing point in two cases for A and B.
