A.Research Questionsa.What are the components of soap?b.With which salt(s) does soap form a precipitate? Observations of Procedures Step in the Synthesis Observation Combined Reactants in Beaker The addition of ethyl alcohol made coconut oil clump up. NaOH caused it to slightly mix. Began Heating Reactants Mixture became thin, clear and slightly brown with lots of bubbles. Completed Heating Reactants Mixture became cream looking with a slightly thick consistency NaCl Added The addition of NaCl caused mixture to solidify Solution is Vacuum Filtered The solid component form the addition of NaCl was left behind DI Water Added When soap solid used with DI water, hands felt soft and slightly sticky after drying. B. Observations a. Tables Observation and Analyses of Soap and Salts Reaction with… NaCl Observation Slightly opaque with white color Equation for Chemical Reaction N/A FeCl 3 Observation Transparent yellow Equation for Chemical Reaction 3RCOONa(aq) + FeCl 3 (aq) (RCOO) 3 Fe(aq) + 3NaCl(aq) CaCl 2
