Ethanol, used in alcoholic beverages, can be produced by the fermentation of sucrose, which is found in sugar cane and other plants. The balanced equation for the fermentation process is
(a) What mass of ethanol, , would be produced when sucrose reacts by this process?
(b) What mass of would also be produced?
Production of alcohol from glucose (fermentation):
CHO 2CHCHOH + 2CO
This way, only about 13-15% of alcohol can be produced because the yeast, that is responsible for fermentation, can no longer survive those conditions. In order to get higher percentage of alcohol, process of distillation is the only way to to that.
