Some sees contain lipids. Describe how you could use emulsion test to show that a seed contains lipids (3marks)

someone please correct me if am wrong !
Here is my attempt:

1) Place the seeds into a test tube containing ethanol -shake the test tube
2) lipids dissolves in ethanol- Pour the lipid-ethanol mixture into a clean test tube with a equivalent volume of water
3) White cloudy emulsion is formed. lipid comes out the mixture solution and forms a emulsion of top of the water

Not 100% sure, but wouldn't you have to crush the seeds first before they can react with the ethanol?

It says here to crush the sample: http://www.brilliantbiologystudent.c...sion_test.html

It doesn't say how you should do it, but I remember my biology teacher saying to use a flat knife

Was this in the AQA exam? I remember this question from the paper and the generally accepted answer was that you had to crush the seeds first.

I remember this question... I have a feeling it was the very first one on the AQA exam of this year. Am I right? I wrote pretty much what you posted, except I wrote that you need to crush the seeds first.

You could probably also use a mortar + pestle too (given the seeds are small enough)

One can think AQA doesnt have enough question so it steals from other boards..or maybe they both have problems and using each others

It would be the other way around (OCR telling AQA that they have daft questions )

they dont react with the ethanol, just dissolve. and in the water it doesnt dissolve so a white precipitate forms.
