Unformatted text preview: ALLOWING THE PRECIPITATE TO FORM. Acetic acid was used in the synthesis of zinc iodide because it does not react with any substances in the main reaction, and since it is volatile, it can be easily removed from the mixture by heating when it is not needed anymore. One positive reason for not allowing the precipitate to form would be to allow maximum reaction. A drawback of not allowing the precipitate to form would be weakening of the reaction between the base reagents and affecting solubility....
