Step 1

Given,

Molar mass of tetraphenyl phosphonium chloride = 342.39 g/mol

Percentage of purity of tetraphenyl phosphonium chloride = 98.0 %

Molarity = 41.0 mM = 0.041 M

Volume = 0.50 L

Number of moles of tetraphenyl phosphonium chloride needed to prepare 0.50 L of a 0.041 M(mol/L) solution, can be calculated as: help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseNo. of moles Molarity olume of solution No. of moles Molarity x Volume of solution No. of moles 0.041mol/L x 0.50 L No. of moles 0.0205 mol fullscreen
Step 2

Grams of tetraphenyl phosphonium chloride can be calculated as: help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseMass No. of moles Molar mass Mass No. of moles x Molar mass Mass 0.0205 mol x 342.39 g/mol Mass 7.02 g fullscreen
Step 3

The calculated mass (7.02 g) is the pure mass of tetraphenyl phosphonium chloride required.
