Michael Miller Biology 1208 Lab Section 19 11-27-07 Abstract The length of time for solutions of ethylene, diethylene, and triethylene to undergo hemolysis was measured in this experiment. Hemolysis time was based on the effect of lipid solubility and molecular size on the capability of particular molecules to pass through the red blood cell membrane. Solutions of 2% whole bowvine blood were used to provide the red blood cells. Ethylene experienced the shortest

Unformatted text preview: time until hemolysis, while diethylene took a little longer, thus leaving triethylene with the longest time until hemolysis. The experiment was repeated three times with each glycol to ensure precise measurements, and the standard deviation of each trial run was very small. This data suggests that bigger glycols with large weights will take longer to pass through the red blood cells membrane as compared to lighter, more undersized glycols....
