Caffeine Extraction Lab

Mrs. Campbell’s chemistry class are working on extracting caffeine crystals with tea bags, and NoDoz. This process has been going on since last week. The students have  extracted the caffeine using isopropyl alcohol. The next step will be boiling off the alcohol in an oil bath to get the crystals. Here are a few photos of the students at work. 0206181259c_Burst0102061813080206181259b_Burst01
