RESEARCH CAPSTONEScientific Literature Part 1(EXPLORE)D. Discussing new concepts and practicing new skills # 12.3. Formulating Scientific LiteratureLiterature Review WorksheetAuthor (s)Machindra Jadhav, Nitin Taur, Sagar Sapkal, Shubham Tathe, FarhaQuadriArticle / Journal TitleStudy on Effect of Caffeine on Growth of Vigna radiata L.Publication NameInternational Journal of Advanced ResearchDate2016Volume4Issue3Pages596 - 6021. What is/are the research problem/s in the journal?- The purpose of this experiment was to observe how caffeine would affect germination andgrowth ofVigna radiata L.- Will the caffeine have a positive impact on the growth ofVigna radiata L.?- Will the addition of caffeine would make the growth ofVigna radiata L.faster?2. In 40 to 50 words, describe the background of the study.- Caffeine is a bitter crystalline alkaloid which is often used as mild stimulants, and has achemical formula of C8H10N4O2. The Mung bean(Vigna radiata L.)is a legume cultivated forits edible seeds and sprouts across Asia. In the current study,Vigna radiata L. seeds were givenvarious doses of caffeine to observe how it affected plant growth and to evaluate its impact.3. Describe the methodology used in the study.- The methodology of the study shows the testing of the seed sample collected, sterilizationof soil, and the preparation of the concentration range of caffeine. Caffeine was applied toVignaradiata L.seeds at various concentrations to examine how it affected the plant growth. Then, theheight was daily examined with geometric scale. Then, the dry weight weigh of plant roots andshoot was performed. According to Gomez and Gomez (1984), the experimental data werestatistically analyzed using the analysis of variance techniques. Finally, grinding the samplewere filtered and the final volume (6ml) was transferred to graduate tubes and characterizedusing a dual-beam spectrophotometer at A663, A646, A470 as described by Lichtenthaler(1987).
RESEARCH CAPSTONE4. In 40 to 50 words, write the findings/results in the study.- The seedlings were harvested 12 days after germination to assess fresh/dry weight andspectrophotometric readings for chlorophyll content. Height, weight, Chl a, b, and carotenoidsestimations all show that 0.5-1.25 percent caffeine produces the optimum benefits. Statisticalanalysis is used to eliminate experimental errors. Caffeine has a favorable effect on Vignaradiata L. growth, according to the findings.5. Cite 5 journals or articles used as a reference for the study.- Arnon.D.I. (1949).
