This isnt the usual question that gets asked here, more of a simple thing than the norm! Im conducting an experiment into the effect of temperature on enzymes. I am wondering if i had a starch solution and added some IKI to it, obviously it will become purple/black. Now is it the end of the test?? I mean if i now add some amylase to turn the starch to glucose will the colour begin to fade and become the usually iodine yellow? If that won't work I assume a sample will need to be taken every few seconds and mixed with a seperate drop of iodine each time and when the drops no longer turn purple the reaction is complete. Thanks for some advice Best Regards Lee Bales
