Qualitative analysis is a branch of analytical chemistry that deals with the separation and identification of the components of matter - what is present, not how much is present. There are many common qualitative analysis schemes that separate the ions into groups based on selective precipitation. Although sophisticated instrumental techniques have replaced much of the traditional wet chemistry analytical methods, qualitative analysis remains an important part of the laboratory experience in general chemistry. In qualitative analysis, the ions in a mixture are separated by selective precipitation. Selective precipitation involves the addition of a carefully selected reagent to an aqueous mixture of ions, resulting in the precipitation of one or more of the ions, while leaving the rest in solution. Once each ion is isolated, its identity can be confirmed by using a chemical reaction specific to that ion. It is important to learn this analysis to know the ions involved in an unknown sample. It helps to solve some environmental problems such as contamination of unknown ions in a body of water, contamination of a toxic chemical in foods, etc.
Introduction. Part A:
The purpose of this laboratory was to follow a classic analytical scheme to separate and identify the ions in an unknown mixture of group I cations, and then apply this scheme to identify the ions in an unknown mixture of group I cations.
Introduction. Part B. Underlying Scientific Theory:
In this experiment we will analyze a solution containing Ag+, Pb2+ and Hg22+. This mixture will be analyzed by separating the two ions, and then confirming the presence of each. By keeping detailed observations for the known analysis, you will then be able to identify an unknown solution containing one or both ions by carrying out the same procedure you did for the knowns and comparing the observations you collected for the unknown with those of the known.
Experimental Details, Computation Procedures, and results:
First, mix equal volumes of ....

Chromatography Lab for Chem AP - Chemistry AP - Assignment

965 words - 4 pages has an Rf closer to Blue #2. Summary: In this experiment, we learned how paper chromatography could be used with various solvents in order to separate various mixtures of unknown substances. By comparing our retention factors to known values for certain molecules, we could identify the components in the mixture. This opens up many real-life applications in many fields. A biologist or ecologist might use chromatography to test the prevalence of certain substances in nature. Doctors could use chromatography to test patients for drugs, toxins, etc. As mentioned on the lab sheet, gas chromatography can be used to test air for traces of explosives, poisons, etc.

Correlation of data and hypothesis: As the DTZA was either diluted or concentrated, the line of best fit will also follow the DTZA to see if it increases or decreases. The ferrate and DTZA went back and forth because when the DTZA increased, ferrate decreased and vice versa. REFLECTION I was the manager of my group for this experiment. I explained them the procedure and got the materials we would need for the lab. My partners

One unique physical property of a substance is the amount of energy it will absorb per unit of mass. This property can be measured quite accurately and is called specific heat (Cp). Specific heat is the amount of energy measured in joules

779 words - 4 pages this by looking at my report in the lab, and Butanol lasted a long time with holding water, it held it for over 600+ seconds! I believe that it held the most because it had the strongest attraction because it had more hydrogens and carbons than any alcohol. Now for an alcohol with the weakest IMF force of attraction I chose Methanol because its formula was C H3 OH. Now as I saw this I noticed that it had the least amount of Carbons and Hydrogens
