In part 1 of this experiment [Co(NH 3 ) 6 ]Cl 3 was synthesized. This was done by adding 1.013g of CoCl 2 6H 2 O to .702g of NH 4 Cl. 1 ml of H 2 O was then added and 3 ml of NH 4 OH. Charcoal was added as a catalyst and then 3 ml of 10% H 2 O 2 . The final mass of the product was .204g. The limiting reagent for this experiment was the CoCl 2 6H 2 O. The theoretical yield was 1.069g and percent yield was 19%. This large difference may have been due to loss of product due to filtering and spilling. In part 2 of this experiment [Co(NH 3 ) 5 Cl]Cl 2 was synthesized. This was done using 1.01g of CoCl 2 6H 2 O, .701g of NH 4 Cl, 3 ml of NH 4 OH, 3 ml of H 2 O 2 , and 3 ml of HCl. The mass of product yielded was .818g. The limiting reagent was the CoCl 2 6H 2 O. The theoretical yield was 1.073g. The percent yield was 76.23%. Some sources of error for this experiment could have been due to loss of product due to bubbling and from filtering. In part 3 of this experiment trans-[Co(en)

Unformatted text preview: 2 Cl 2 ]Cl was synthesized. This was done using 1.5g of CoCl 2 • 6H 2 O, 5 ml of 10% ethylenediamine, 5 ml of 10% H 2 O 2 , and 6 ml of concentrated HCl as well as 5 ml of methanol. The mass of product yielded was .682g. The limiting reagent was CoCl 2 • 6H 2 O. The theoretical yield was 1.043g. The percent yield was 65%. Possible sources of error for this part were improper airing, over heating, and improper filtering. In part 4 of this experiment cis-[Co(en) 2 Cl 2 ]Cl was synthesized from trans-[Co(en) 2 Cl 2 ]Cl. This was done by adding water to .341g of cis product and heating until it isomerized. The theoretical yield was .341g while the actual yield was .282g. The percent yield was 82.69%. The loss of product could have been due to evaporation and spillage. In part 5 of this experiment the cis and trans products were observed using a spectrometer....

    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.
