Hydrolysis & How It Is Used To Make Soaps | Organic Chemistry | Chemistry | FuseSchool

In this video we are going to learn how soap is made by a process called hydrolysis and how we can control whether the soap produced is ‘hard’ or ‘soft.’ Soap is a detergent and has been around for thousands of years. Traditionally, ash from wood fires acted on animal fat in the first soap Read more…

The Extraction Of Plant Oils | Organic Chemistry | Chemistry | FuseSchool

In this lesson, we will learn about plant oils – where they come from, how to extract them, and their generic structure. Plant oils are obtained from plants. These oils are found in all parts of a plant – seeds, nuts, fruit, leaves, flowers, bark, and even roots. However, these oils must extracted before they Read more…

Hardening Vegetable Oils Through Hydrogenation | Organic Chemistry | Chemistry | FuseSchool

We have previously learned that an emulsion is a mixture of two immiscible liquids stabilized by an emulsifier. Margarine is a very good example of an emulsion. In this lesson, we will learn about margarine – what it is, how it is made, and a few key properties. Vegetable oils are polyunsaturated fats. You may Read more…

Hydrocarbon Cracking & Why It Is Done | Organic Chemistry | Chemistry | FuseSchool

In this video you will learn about the process of cracking, how it is carried out and why it is done. From our video on fractional distillation, you should know that crude oil is a mixture of hydrocarbons with different carbon chain lengths. Smaller hydrocarbons have a lower boiling point and are more volatile, making Read more…

Fractional Distillation | Organic Chemistry | Chemistry | FuseSchool

In this video you will learn how fractional distillation separates crude oil into useful fractions. Crude oil is the term used to describe unprocessed oil. That is oil that has been taken directly out of the ground either on land or under the sea. It is an exceptionally valuable resource. It provides us with a Read more…
