Oscar Southbloom
Jon Almen Introduction We are extracting the active ingredient
Diphenhydramine Hydrochloride
from the following medications: Equate Benadryl Liquid Gels Benadryl Pill = 240 mg
Active ingredient = 16.7mg

Active ingredient per pill
is 6.95% of the total mass.

percent error 33%
Pill = 226 mg
Active ingredient = 15.2 mg

Active ingredient per pill
is 6.74% of the total mass.

percent error 39% Pill = 418 mg
Active ingredient = 14.3 mg

Active ingredient per pill
is 3.42% of the total mass. 500 mg 250 mg Equate
240mg Benadryl
226mg Liquid Gels
418mg Mass of the
individual pill 20 mg 10 mg Equate
16.7mg Benadryl
15.2mg Liquid Gels
14.3mg Mass of the Active Ingredients Extracted compared to the Actual Mass of Active Ingredient 15 mg 5 mg Equate
of the total mass of 240 mg Benadryl
6.74% of the total mass of 226mg Liquid Gel
of the total mass of 418mg What could have effected the ending mass of
Diphenhydramine Hydrochloride ? How many times do you need to extract with Ether to get a more exact result? Ether is lighter than water and floats to the top making it easy to pour off the top. Hypothesis Is the amount of Diphenhydramine Hydrochloride stated on the boxes of allergy medication the actual amount of Diphenhydramine Hydrochloride that can be extracted through base extraction? 25mg Actual Amount
