Chapter 27 - Gravimetric Methods of Analysis Gravimetric methods of analysis are based on: weighing some form of the analyte after it precipitates weighing the analyte after evolution of a gas weighing the gas evolved from a sample (evolved gas analysis) s aq aq AgCl Cl Ag → + - + (g) 2 (g) (s) Δ (s) 4 2 CO CO CaO O CaC + + → For good results, precipitating reagents should be selective , reacting with only a small number of analytes. For best results, precipitating reagents should be specific , reacting with only a single analyte.

Procedure Requirements for Precipitates used in Gravimetry: - Readily filterable and washed free of contaminants - Low solubility to ensure no significant loss during filtration and washing - Chemically inert to the atmosphere - Of known composition after it is dried or ignited CaC 2 O 4 CaCO 3 CaO PRECIPITATE FILTER DRY or IGNITE WEIGH PREPARE THE SOLUTION DIGEST WASH CALCULATE

Obtaining the Right Particle Size for Filtration When the supersaturation is large, precipitate tends to be colloidal. When it is small, precipitate tends to be crystalline. S S Q (SS) ation Supersatur Relative - = Analyte concentration at any instant Equilibrium solubility Given by K sp S S S

Precipitate under the right conditions. Obtaining the Right Particle Size Keep relative supersaturation low! Increase S (precipitate at low pH (anion is protonated and then precipitate is more soluble), precipitate from hot solution). Decrease Q (slow addition of precipitating reagent,
