Many companies introduce varieties of household cleaner and disinfectant that eliminate microorganisms effectively. Oxalic acid and Phenol acid are commonly found in household cleaner and disinfectant because they are the main ingredients in the elimination of the said microorganisms. Household cleaner and disinfectant nowadays are really expensive and contain many chemicals that might cause irritation to sensitive people.
Eggplant (Solarium melange) is a species of nightshade commonly known in British English as barbering and also known Sebastian, bribing eggplant, melange, or Guiana squash. It bears a fruit of the same name that is widely used in cooking, most notably as an important ingredient in dishes such as mousse’s and ratatouille. As a member of the genus Solarium, it is related to both the tomato and the potato. It was originally domesticated in India from the wild nightshade, the thorn or bitter apple, S. Incant. Oxalic acid and phenol acid occurs naturally in some plants including eggplant.
Since eggplant contains Oxalic acid and Phenol acid which are the main ingredients in producing household disinfectant and cleaner the researchers name up with the idea on producing organic household cleaner and disinfectant out of eggplant. This product will help people that are sensitive in some products that contain high chemicals that irritate them. It will be cheaper than other commercially manufactured household cleaner and disinfectant that are sold in the market today. Background of the Study Nowadays, people have using different household disinfectant and cleaner that are expensive and less effective.
This study aims to determine whether the Eggplant (Solarium melange) has the ability to be a good source of oxalic and phenol acid which are commonly used components for making household disinfectants and cleaners. Eggplant (Solarium melange) is rich in different vitamins that are useful in fighting diseases. Aside from being useful in fighting diseases, eggplants are also a rich sources of phenol acid that function as antioxidants which also contains a so-called chlorine acid. This is responsible for the eggplants’ bitter taste when their flesh is cut.
This is an enzyme called polyphony oxides that triggers a phenol acid that produces brown pigments. Eggplant s among a small number of foods that contain measurable amounts of oxalate’s, a naturally occurring substances found in plants, animals, and human beings. When oxalate’s become too concentrated in body fluids, they can crystallize and cause health problems. But this oxalate’s is can also be used as cleaning purposes having a bleach-like quality that is perfect for making household disinfectant or control bacteria and germs.
Overall, using eggplant in making household disinfectants and cleaners has benefits since it contain properties that can be used as an agent for cleaning. Research Problem: The study aims to determine the anti-bacterial properties of Oxalic acid and Phenol acid of eggplant (Solarium melange) . Sub- Problem: What is the zone of inhibition of the Blended and Boiled eggplant extract? Which is more feasible to use as a disinfectant? Blended or Boiled eggplant extract? Is the eggplant extract feasible to use as a Household Cleaner? Why?
Hypothesis: Alternative: The oxalic acid and phenol acid of eggplants are effective disinfectants and cleaning agents. Null: The oxalic acid and phenol acid of eggplants are not effective disinfectants and cleaning agents. Significance of the Study This study wants to determine the feasibility of eggplant (Solarium melange) as cleaner and disinfectant. The results that would be gathered would be beneficiary to both the consumers and producers of products. The producers of products won’t have to look for an expensive material, thus saving them money in production.
The consumers would be able to have a product in a lower price and something produced out of a material they normally use only for food consumption. The rarity of such product could also boost its standing in the market nowadays. There would also be little to no harm to the environment and to anyone who will use the product. Eggplant (Solarium melange) also known as barbering in British English is a species of nightshade, it is contains vitamins, minerals and Photosynthesis which aids in antioxidant activity. It contains 0. 9 g/grammas of Oxalic acid, an odorless, white crystalline solid that exists in its natural state in many plants ,a component of metal cleaning agents and a scouring agent in textile cleaning, striping and finishing, if inhaled or absorbed through skin can caused kidney damage among other things. Eggplants also contain phenol acid Plants form these compounds to protect against oxidative stress, as well as infection by bacteria and fungi. One of the active ingredients of some household disinfectant, is Phenols.
Both of these compounds are contained by Eggplant (Solarium melange), which makes it an even better candidate for finding out it’s possible usage as cleaner and disinfectant. It is cheap, abundant and environment-friendly. It could also be potentially good in terms of being in commercial market because of its unique ensues. Scope and Delimitation Scope The coverage of this study is to know about the effectiveness of an eggplant (Solarium melange) as cleaner and disinfectant. The objective of this study is to produce a cheaper disinfectant that is effective for household cleaning.
The product is used to clean tight and dirty places and users of the product must be 7 years of age or above. Materials used for the disinfectant are body of the eggplant, water, Sodium Beneath (for durability), etc. That are mixed together by a blender. The study and the experimentation will be finished within a week. The purpose of the product is for cleaning and disinfecting. Delimitation The study does not cover the comparison of the effectiveness of the eggplant from other plants that can also be used as cleaner and disinfectant (such as calamines, etc. ).
The study is not allowed to be conducted by any person below 1 0 years of age. The study does not include other dirty objects but only limited to tight and dirty places such as bathroom, etc. Definition of terms Conceptual Definition Blender – It is a kitchen and laboratory appliance used to mix,puree, or emulsify food and other substances. Boiling Method – It is the method of rapid vaporization of a liquid, which occurs when a liquid is heated to its boiling point, the temperature at which the vapor pressure of the liquid is equal to the pressure exerted on the liquid by the surrounding environmental pressure.
Chemicals – It is a form Of matter that has constant chemical composition and characteristic properties. Alt cannot be separated into components by physical separation methods. Cleaner – It is a type of industrial or domestic worker who cleans homes or commercial premises for payment. Unlike other servants, their primary task is cleaning. Disinfectant – It is a substance that is applied to non-living objects to destroy microorganisms that are living on the objects. Eggplant – It is a species of nightshade commonly known in British English as barbering.
It bears a fruit of the same name that is widely used in cooking, most notably as an important ingredient in dishes such as mousse’s and ratatouille. Extraction – It is the process of obtaining something from a mixture or compound by physical or chemical means. Microorganisms – It is an organism that is microscopic. It includes bacteria, fungi, and prisons. Night shade – It is n economically important family of flowering plants. The family ranges from herbs to trees, and includes a number of important agricultural crops, medicinal plants, spices, weeds, and ornamental.
Many members of the family contain potent alkaloids, and some are highly toxic, but many cultures eat nightshades, in some cases as a staple food. Oxalic – It is an organic compound with the formula HECTIC. It is a colorless crystalline solid that dissolves in water to give colorless solutions. It is classified as a diacritically acid. In terms of acid strength, it is much stronger than acetic acid. Oxalic acid is a reducing and its conjugate base, known as oxalate (CACHE-?), is a chelating agent for metal actions.
Phenol- It is any analogous hydroxyl derivative of benzene. Shelf life – the length of time that a commodity may be stored without becoming unfit for use Sodium Beneath – It has the chemical formula Nachos; it is a widely used food preservative, with E number EYE 1 . It is the sodium salt of benzene acid and exists in this form when dissolved in water. It can be produced by reacting sodium hydroxide hedonistic acid. Benzene acid occurs naturally at low levels n cranberries, prunes, greengage plums, cinnamon, ripe cloves, and apples.
