What did you do today?
- We finished the first experiment and extracted caffeine from black tea. We used many different separation methods to do so and it was interesting to enhance our own experiences.
What did you learn today?
- I learnt how to use many different ways to separate liquids and solids such as filtration or using a separation funnel. Also, I learnt how to use many different equipment that are not available in SST and also learnt about the safety procedures to use them.
How did you feel about today's activities?
- I think the use of separation techniques can also be used in separating dangerous chemicals, oil or pollutants from sea water so that it will no longer contaminate the ocean. I think that today was a very enjoyable and fruitful experience and is one that I may or may not get the chance to experience again.
