This is part of the HSC Chemistry course under the topic of Solution Equilibria. In this post, we explore an investigation into the use of solubility equilibria by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples when removing toxicity from foods, for example, toxins in cycad fruit.
The following video explores the solubility of the toxins in cycads and how the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples detoxified their foods.
