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....
