Set aside. 3.2. Immerse strips in 1% solution of ascorbic acid in an open petri plate. Set aside. 3.3. Boil water in a 250-ml beaker. Place strips of apple/potato and cucumber/tu rnip in boiling water for 3 minutes and then with the use of forceps, transfer the strips in an open petri plate. Set aside. 3.4. Get 2 test tubes and add 6 ml of 3% guaiacol. Place strips of fruit in one test tube and strips of vegetable in another test tube. Set aside. 3.5. Place strips in boiling water for 3 minutes. Use boiled water in # 3.3. Then, put in a test tube with 6 ml of 3% guaiacol. Set aside 4. After the treatments, allow the set- ups to stand for 20 minutes. Record the results in Table 5 of your worksheet. 5. Additional tests . Certain fruits and vegetables do not have the enzyme systems which are necessary for oxidations that cause the browning observed above. 6. Cut 6 strips more of cucumber. Expose 3 strips under condition 3.1 and 3 strips under condition 3.4. However, this time, add 10 drops of 3% hydrogen peroxide to the strips under both conditions. 7. Record your results. The peroxide acts as a source of oxygen for enzyme systems in these tissues. E2. Catalase 1. Get 2 test tubes and label A and B. Place 5 ml of 3% hydrogen peroxide in each tube. 2. Cut 6 strips (2 cm long, 0.5 cm wide and 0.5 cm thick) of freshly peeled potato tuber. 3. Place 3 freshly prepared strips in tube A. Boil the 3 remaining strips for 3 minutes and place these in tube B. 4. Observe the reaction after 10 minutes. References 1. Balbach, M. and L. C. Bliss. 1991.
