Qualitative analysis of ionic compounds


prelab assignment  [20 points]

1.  copy the below table.  if a precipitate forms by mixing the salts in the corresponding column and row, then place a "ppt" in the below table.

sodium hydroxide
sodium phosphate
sodium carbonate
sodium   iodide
sodium sulfate
silver nitrate
lead II nitrate
cobalt nitrate
copper II nitrate
barium nitrate
iron II nitrate
magnesium nitrate

2.  msds information on sodium hydroxide and silver nitrate



 to observe various precipitation reactions

compare experimental observations to predictions based upon solubility rules

evaluate the reliability of the solubility rules


aqueous solutions of various ionic compounds

microplate wells  [to view reaction]


student design

if a precipitate does not form within a second or so upon adding the 2nd solution, consider it to be not forming a precipitate.
