the draw. It involves the hydrolysis of sucrose to glucose and fructose. The liquid is not pure, and they have the different boiling point. The liquid will be vapor out in order. Burn out the liquid on the watch glass to see how pure the liquid is. The difference came out in order of boiling point. It became more and more pure liquid as the longer period. Introduction: The fermentation reaction is used for Biosynthesis of Ethanol. In this reaction, enzymes in yeast convert sugar to carbon dioxide and ethanol by first catalyzing the hydrolysis of sucrose into the monosaccharides fructose and glucose. After conversion to their phosphates, the monosaccharides undergo glycolysis leading to ethanol and
