Unformatted text preview: Experimental Procedure Summary Name: Niraj Patel ID# 20387356 TA: Chris Goudy Date: October 8 th , 2010 Experiment #1: The chemistry of copper compounds Procedure: Part 1: Synthesis of Copper (I I) Nitrate and Copper (I I) Hydroxide Pick up copper wire and piece of sandpaper from the side bench Sand the wire Weigh the copper wire on analytical balance (masses quoted to 4 decimal place) Place copper wire in a 250 ml beaker, and place in fume hood In fume hood add 20ml of concentrated nitric acid, HNO 3 to the beaker Let nitric acid and copper wire sit in the fume hood until the reaction is complete Observe and record a description of this reaction After the wire has dissolved swirl reaction mixture in fume food to remove gases trapped in the solution before taking the beaker to your desk Keep in fume hood until solution is bright blue After dissolution, dilute with 25ml of deionized water( water from grey taps located beside the fume hoods) While stirring slowly add 25ml of 20 percent NaOH. Adding 25ml of 20 percent NaOH should make the solution alkaline. Observe and record a description of this reaction. Part 2 Synthesis of Copper (I I) Oxide Set up a heating apparatus. In this heating apparatus Cu (OH) 2 is put in a beaker, which is on a wire gauze supported by a ring clamp, that is heated...
