In Part A, you will run qualitative, confirmatory tests on the individual ions to determine their behavior in the presence of iodide ions. In Part B, you will run qualitative tests on the individual ions to determine their solubilities in the presence of HCl, hot water and NH3. In Part C, you will use your results to develop a scheme to separate and identify the ions in a mixture where all three ions are together. In Part D, you will use your scheme to separate and identify the cations in an unknown mixture. Completion of all four parts of this lab during the allotted lab period is difficult for one student pair. It is recommended that one student pair complete portions A and B; another student pair should complete portions C and D. The student groups can then exchange observations.

They can attack the skin and cause permanent damage to the eyes. If either solution splashes into your eyes, use the eyewash immediately. Hold your eyes open and flush with water. If contact with skin or clothing occurs, flush the affected area with water. Have your lab partner notify your instructor about the spill. The solutions also have irritating vapors. They should be used in a fume hood; avoid inhaling the vapors. Lead and mercury are toxic if ingested. You will be working with very small quantities of these materials, so the hazard is minimal. Nonetheless, be aware of small splashes and spills. Cle...
