Abstract :

A laboratory experiment wherein students can learn to measure the activity of amylase, use a smartphone to perform colorimetry, observe the effect of light scattering and gain a better understanding of UV-vis spectroscopy is presented. The smartphone colorimetry can effectively quantify the concentration of a colored compound in opaque samples.
