What sounds interesting about this project ?
What I think is interesting about this project is how we can extract caffeine from tea. I do not think that the chance to see caffeine in its pure form is common and easily accessible. I am also curious on how the caffeine would look like in its pure form as it is normally found mixed with water and other solvents.
What do you think you can learn from this project?
I think I can learn about the different methods to separate solutes/solvents and perhaps expose myself to some new terms that we would not have previously seen in Biology lessons in SST
Any immediate questions regarding the project?
I would like to know how the caffeine is produced by the tea leaves.
