Purpose: Week one: synthesize one of two unknown cobalt complexes. Week two: purify and measure wavelengths for five cobalt complexes synthesized. Use these data and the spectrochemical series to determine the identities of the five complexes. Observations: 1. When the NH CL was combined with the cobalt complex, the resulting solution was black. 2. When the aqueous ammonia was combined, the solution produced gas (oxygen). 3. During the heating of the resulting solution, the solution remained black for the majority of the time until suddenly it took on a rust-red color. 4. After approximately 30 minutes of heating, the solution began to precipitate, then after another 7 minutes it became and paste, then in another 7, it dried to a powder. 5. When the powder was added to the hot HCL, the acid took on the color of the powder. 6. Filtration rendered the mixture an orange color.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
