Abstract: The purpose of this experiment was to prepare a complex iron salt and analyze it to determine its identity. The methods that were used were to obtain necessary amounts of compounds in their required flasks to induce the desired reactions. The results of these experiments were that the solutions turned colors when certain compounds were introduced and heat was added. Introduction: The purpose of this experiment was to prepare a complex iron salt and analyze it to determine its identity. The first part of this experiment consisted of synthesizing the compound potassium ferric oxalate, K 3 Fe(C 2 O 4 ) 3 3H 2 O to produce as great a yield as possible. The first reaction consisted of 5.008 grams of Fe(NH 4 ) 2 (SO 4 ) 2 6H 2 O being added to 5 drops H 2 C 2 O 4 . Heat was added to initiate the reaction. The reaction went: Fe(NH 4 ) 2 (SO 4 ) 2 6H 2 O + H 2 C 2 O 4 FeC 2 O 4 2H 2 O + (NH 4 ) 2 SO 4 + 4H 2 O The desired product, FeC 2 O 4 2H 2 O, (yellow solid) was then decanted from the (NH
