Azeotropic Distillation | With Two Examples and Applications

Azeotropic Distillation

You might have gone through different types of distillation techniques. Of them azeotropic distillation is quite interesting one. This method is used to separate azeotropic solutions. As per Wikipedia, an azeotrope is a mixture which cannot be separated by simple distillation. In general, most liquid mixtures can be separated by fractional distillation (FD). During the […]

Redox Titrations | The Experimental steps and Applications

Redox Titrations

Redox titrations involve oxidative reduction reactions. This types of titrations are quite common in usage next to acid-base titrations. As the name indicates, these redox titrations are used to analyze the reducing agents or oxidizing agent. The reaction involves the transfer of electrons, hydrogen or oxygen. The principle of redox titration: The test substance if […]

Do Cells Respond to Every Signal | No Not at All

Cells, in general, are designed to respond to specific signals. They can do so because of receptors on their surfaces. In general, cells respond to bio-molecules like hormones, ions, vitamins, etc. They also respond to drugs, heavy metals and poisons. But, all the body cells do not respond to all the chemical signals. To put […]
