a) clean wire with 15 M HNO 3 and deionized water b) Heat the wire to make sure there is no flame color c) Using a nichrome wire, make a small loop, insert into the flame. If it produces flame color then clean the loop by dipping in 16M HNO 3 . Re- check and repeat cleaning until no flame color is visible, then finally clean with de-ionized water. d) Moisten loop with de-ionized water, touch unknown, and place into flame. i. No color then there is no Na + , K + present ii. If Orange then Na + is present, but its also possible for NH 4 or K + iii. Purple then K + is present possible NH 4 + Test with water solutions Solution Preparation Dissolve a little bit more than ½ to 2/3of the unknown in 10-15ml of de-ionized water. Save remaining unknown. 2) Colbaltinitre tests a) Combine 6 drops of 6M HAc, 2-3 drops of sodium cobaltnitrite reagent, and 10-15 drops of test solution. b) Allow the mixtures to sit until precipitates form c) Transfer a sample of each mixture to filter paper i. If filter paper is clear of color, K + is present ii. If filter paper is dark yellow, NH 4 + is present iii. If filter paper is light yellow, Na
