Chelsea Pinkham CHEM 211 – Section 202 Purpose: The purpose of this experiment is to prepare the coordination compound, potassium trioxalatoferrate (III) trihydrate from potassium oxalate hydrate and ferric chloride, and determine the percent yield. Procedure: 1. Weigh a 150 mL beaker, then weigh about 10 grams of K 2 C 2 O 4 H 2 O into it. Add 17 mL of distilled water, and warm gently on a hot plate. Stir until completely dissolved. Remove from heat. 2. Add 4 mL of ferric chloride solution to beaker containing the solution. Stir and cool the beaker in ice bath to 0ºC until crystallization is complete. Record the molarity of the ferric chloride solution. 3. Decant the solution, reserving all solid material. Keep liquid just incase crystallization was not complete. 4. Add 17 mL of warm distilled water to the solid material. Stir to dissolve. Allow product to precipitate out of solution by cooling it at 0ºC.
