Q1: What is the aim of the experiment?
To produce pure Potassium Ferric Oxalate crystals from oxalic acid dihydrate, potassium monohydrate, and ferric chloride.
Q2: What is Potassium Ferric Oxalate?
Potassium Ferric Oxalate crystal is a light green inorganic complex made from ferric sulphate and barium oxalate in the presence of oxalic acid. One example of an Oxidation-Reduction reaction is this.
Potassium ferrioxalate, Potassium Trioxalatoferrate (III), Potassium tris (oxalato) ferrate(III), and Potassium iron(3+) oxalate are all names for potassium ferric oxalate.
Q3: What is the colour of Potassium ferric oxalate and what is its melting point
Potassium ferric oxalate has a green colour and a melting point of 230°C.
Q4: Define crystallisation.
The process of crystallisation is the formation of a solid form in which the atoms or molecules are strongly arranged into a structure known as a crystal.
Q5: What is called “seeding”?
When a crystal of the same substance is put into a saturated solution, crystallisation might not occur in some instances. This is referred to as seeding.
Q6: What are the precautions needed for the experiment?
- Do not overconcentrate the solution.
- To get large crystals, don’t disturb the solution during crystallisation.
- To dissolve unwanted salt, wash the crystals with hot water.
Q7: Why is the hot saturated solution not cooled suddenly?
Crystals of smaller sizes form when a solution is rapidly cooled. Crystals grow in size as a saturated solution cools slowly.
Q8: What is the formula of potassium ferric oxalate?
Q9: What is potassium Ferrioxalate used for?
The ferrioxalate anion is relatively stable in the dark, but light and high-energy electromagnetic radiation decompose it. Chemical actinometry, the measurement of luminous flux, and blueprint preparation use this photo-sensitive characteristic.
Q10: What is the geometry of complex potassium ferric oxalate?
The chemical compound potassium ferrioxalate has the formula K3[Fe(C2O4)3], where iron is in the +3 oxidation state. It is an octahedral transition metal complex in which three bidentate oxalate ions are linked to an iron core.
Q11: What is meant by Equilar proportions?
The ratio of the substances’ molecules to their moles is a 1:1 mole ratio.
Q12: What do you mean by Coordination Compounds?
Coordination compounds contain complex ions and have a central metal atom or ion linked to several ions or neutral molecules by coordinate bonds. K4[Fe(CN)6], [Cu(NH3)4]SO4, and Ni(CO)4 are other examples.
