i need to conduct a project on sweetener, any interesting experiments can be conduct on this topics??
You could start with heating the different sweeteners in an oven at a certain temperature and note the differences before and after: do they look burnt? No need to taste then. Do they look the same as before? You might try and taste if they still taste sweet. Beware: I don't know anything about whether these organic compounds will decompose into any toxic products... :yuck: I can hardly imagine that sugars and sweeteners would become toxic after visually unnoticeable decomposition but maybe you should wait until someone confirms that nothing toxic will remain (I'm more into inorganic chemistry ).real said:if i conduct the experiment of thermal stability, any special apparatus need to use?
