Synthesis and Analysis of a Ferric Oxalate Salt

Introduction The purpose of this lab is as follows: 1) to learn about coordination compounds through the synthesis and analysis of a potassium ferrioxalate hydrate salt and 2) to use the techniques developed in previous labs to determine the empirical formula of the ferrioxalate salt. The ferrioxalate salt has the empirical formula Kx[Fey(C2O4)z]•nH2O. The values of x, y, z, and n are ascertained through determining the percentages of K, Fe, C­2O42-, and H2O; converting these percentages to grams and then […]
