Objectives: To develop a familiarity with spectrophotometry and operations of spectrophotometer. - Beer-Lambert Law - Operate the spectrophotometer To construct two standard curves (using linear regression model) - The importance of a standard curve - Standard curve for o-NP - Standard curve for Bradford protein assay Spectrophotometric Quantification

Principle of Spectrophotometer 1. White light separated by prism to different wavelengths. 2. Wavelength at which absorbance is at a maximum is selected. 3. Transmitted light is collected by a photoelectric tube. 4. Transmitted light energy is converted to electricity. 5. A galvanometer reads the electricity.

%T = light intensity transmitted by sample (I 1 ) x 100 light intensity transmitted by blank (I o ) %T is NOT directly proportional to the concentration of absorbing substances. Absorbance is directly proportional to absorbing substances. The relationship between absorbance (A) and %T is given by: A = log(100/%T) or A = 2 – log(%T) Relationship between %T and Absorbance (A)

The concentration of a solution is determined using the relationship known as Beer’s Law : A = ε l c A: absorbance (no unit) : extinction coefficient (L/mole*cm) l: path length (1 cm) c: concentration (mole/L) This relationship states that the absorbance of light at a
