Homework Help: science

Posted by Pegs on Tuesday, June 1, 2010 at 8:26pm.

How would I scale down an experiment?

For example a procedure states that 5.0 g will be made (53% yield) but we want to propose a microscale procedure that would synthesize .120 g.

Do I simply divide desired amount of product by the one given in the procedure (.120/5) and take that ratio and multiply it to all reagents? Assuming the mole ratio is the same.
