Chem 1C Experiment 18: Synthesis of Transition Metal Coordination Complexes Introduction: In this two week lab we synthesized and analyzed the  cis  and  trans  isomers  of [Co(en) 2 Cl 2 ]Cl. We also synthesized a similar substance, [Co(NH 3 ) 6 ]Cl 3  and  [Co(NH 3 ) 5 Cl]Cl . We analyzed the difference between the isomers and their  ligand strengths.  Part I: In this part of the lab we synthesized hexaamminecobalt(III)chloride. We  started with .991g of CoCl 2 *6H 2 O and combined it 1mL DI water, 3mL  ammonium hydroxide, .711g of ammonium chloride and 3mL hydrogen  peroxide to create (using charcoal as a catalyst) a reaction that yields water  and [Co(NH 3 ) 6 ]Cl :                           charcoal 2CoCl*6H 2 O + 2NH 4 Cl + 10NH 3  + H 2 O 2    2[Co(NH 3 ) 6 ]Cl + 14H 2 O Before the main reaction we added charcoal to catalyze the reaction and at  this point our mixture turned dark brown and we saw white precipitate  forming on the bottom. The actual reaction (once we added the hydrogen

    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.
