Fractional Crystallization of KNO 3 with (NH 4 ) 2 Fe(SO 4 ) 2 .6H 2 O Impurity II. The Solubility Curve of KNO 3 DATA, CALCULATIONS AND GRAPHS Part I: Fractional Crystallization of KNO 3 with (NH 4 ) 2 Fe(SO 4 ) 2 . 6H 2 O Impurity PURPOSE AND METHOD Part I We wanted to verify that fractional crystallization is an effective method of isolating a large amount of target compound from a small amount of impurity. We dissolved a large amount of KNO 3 and a small amount of (NH 4 ) 2 Fe(SO 4 ) 2 . 6H 2 O in near-boiling water, then cooled the solution. The majority of the KNO 3 formed nearly pure crystals, which we extracted and recrystallized again. We calculated the % impurity after each step from the absorbance at 510nm and the molar absorbtivity of Fe. We also calculated the % of original KNO 3 remaining after each step....
