My investigation is vitamin c content in different fruit juices. I am doing this by titrations it against iodine solution. I did my underlying chemistry but my teacher said it was irrelevant and rubbish so I don’t know what to include. Any ideas of what I need to include as it needs to be at advanced higher level. Thank you

Moved to the Scottish qualifications forum- hopefully there will be someone here who did vit c and can let you know what types of things they included As a general point, you can still include all of the Nat 5/higher knowledge you have, you'll just need to go beyond that do it's at AH level.

I suppose you need to explain the chemistry behind your experiment and what is happening and why. Then you could go on and talk about properties, extra stuff that you find in online research papers. Your underlying chemistry is basically there for you to explain the chemistry behind it so SQA can see that you understand what is happening and why.

Haven’t started my project yet so I don’t really know what to do for underlying chemistry just yet.

Hope this helps

Yeah well that’s what I did but my teacher said it wasn’t at advanced higher level so I am not sure what to write about since you do like vitamin C in national 5. But good luck with your project x
