4.Transfer all the mixture solution into the funnel. Rinse the empty beaker with 2-3 mL DI water twice and transfer the rinses into the funnel. Rinse the residue and glass wool with 2-3 mL DI water two times. Discard the glass wool and its content into the wasted container. Save the collected clear filtrate in the beaker. 5.Measure 25 mL of 4M H2SO4 into a clean, dry 50 mL graduated cylinder. The clear solution is then made acidic by the slowaddition of H2SO4. The acidification should be accompanied by continuous stirring. (CAUSTION: H2SO4 IS TOXIC AND CORROSIVE. NEVER LEAVE HOT H2SO4 SOLUTION UNATTENDED.)After the sulfuric acid has been added, the solution may contain large lumps of aluminum hydroxide. While constantly stirring it, this reaction mixture is then heated on a hot plate, gently, for about 5 minutes until all solid dissolves. 6.Use hot hand to remove the clear solution from the heat, and cool by first setting the beaker in tap water, then setting it an ice bath while gently stirring for about 10 minutes until granular crystals appear. Scratch the sides of the beaker with a glass rod to help stimulate crystallization. 7.Place a Filtervac adapter on top of the filter flask. Then place the Buchner funnel into the adapter. Attach the side arm of the filter flask to a vacuum with rubber tubing. 8.Weigh and record the mass of a 9-cm filter paper circle. Place the filter paper over the holes of the Buchner funnel. Wet the filter paper with DI water so that the filter paper adheres evenly to the surface of the funnel. Turn on the vacuum to make sure that the filtering apparatus is air tight. 9.While keeping vacuum on, transfer all crystals onto the filter paper with the help of a policeman (a glass stirring rod with rubber on a tip). Wash the crystals with 3 mL of a 95% alcohol mixture (in which alum is not very soluble). Gentlydragging the policeman through damp crystals helps them dry. Continue vacuum until the crystals and filter paper appears dry.

52 10.Turn off the vacuum. Keeping the crystals on the filter paper. Move the filter paper (with the crystals on top) onto a watch glass. Weigh and record the combined mass of the alum crystals and filter paper. 11.Discard your synthesized alum and the filtrate in the filter flask into the proper containers provided by your instructor.
