  • Dehydration Of Sulfuric Acid And Phosphoric Acid

    1275 Words  | 6 Pages

    3-methylcyclohexene is simple distillation where dehydration was used to prepare the final product. The results of the experiment showed that the 3-methylcyclohexene was formed via an E1 reaction from 2-methylcyclohexanol with a 1:1 ratio of sulfuric acid and phosphoric acid. However, some H2O was left over, which was seen when we look at the IR and see a small water peak. This could be due to the fact that not enough sodium sulfate was added and not for long enough. These results were confirmed by the quality

  • Dimethoxybenzene Using Tert-Butanol And Sulfuric Acid

    434 Words  | 2 Pages

    In this experiment, we alkylated P-dimethoxybenzene using tert-butanol and sulfuric acid in order to find the major product of the reaction. Through this experiment, we obtained about 390.2 mg product which equates to about 88.85 percent yield. This yield is very high, even in comparison to alkylations conducted by other undergraduate students such as Jonathan Melville who had a yield of 62% (1). Furthermore, the melting range was 76-85°C, differing from the reference melting point of 102-104°C by

  • The Festering Odor Of Sulfuric Acid

    1711 Words  | 7 Pages

    Upon entering the village of DePue, IL, one may ponder about the festering odor of sulfuric acid in the air that clashes with the scenic view of a serene lake surrounded by wooded land. The main street of DePue is lined with locally owned businesses, along with abandoned, crumbling buildings. The community members of this village may either smile and wave at a passer-by, or glare at you with an off-putting facial expression. Despite the confusing impression a non-resident or visitor might form, DePue

  • Lab Report: Chemical Reactions Of Copper

    603 Words  | 3 Pages

    After going through multiple reactions with nitric acid, sodium hydroxide, heat, sulfuric acid, and magnesium, the metallic copper was regenerated. The starting 0.021g of copper changed from solid to liquid to solid to liquid, and finally ended at a solid state. The original copper was 0.021g and the ending copper was 0.008g creating a 38.10% recovery. Results + Calculations: During the lab the staring copper reacted with 10 drops of nitric acid, creating a dark green liquid. Distilled water was

  • Acidic Environment

    Acidic Environment Oxides of non-metals which act as acids Non-metals burn in air or oxygen to produce acidic oxides. The addition of water to soluble oxides produces acidic solutions. Oxides of non-metals which act as acids include: * Carbon reacts with oxygen when burnt to form carbon dioxide which is acidic in nature. When dissolved in water, it becomes H2CO3 (carbonic acid). CO2 (g) + H2O (l) →H2CO3 (aq) * Sulfur burns in oxygen to

    elemental form after a chain of reactions. This experiment is very dangerous because of the reactions between the strong acids and bases. In this experiment I performed a series of reactions starting with copper metal and nitric acid to form copper (II) nitrate. Then I reacted copper and several other solutions such as, sodium hydroxide, sulfuric acid, ammonium hydroxide, and hydrochloric acid to form precipitates. In conclusion my percent recovery

  • The Effect Of Superphosphate On The Local Community And The Environment Surrounding It

    1380 Words  | 6 Pages

    will be explaining the use of ‘superphosphate’ in our local community and how it helps in the process of fertilising. The fertiliser made by using local rock containing fluorapatite( referenced from instruction sheet ) which is combined with sulphuric acid resulting in the solution of ‘superphosphate’ being formed. Also we will be discussing how ‘superphosphate’ affects the community and the environment surrounding it, alongside how is produced and the by-products formed and the effects of these by-products

    positive charge. Stage two Figure 2. Stage 2 of the nitration mechanism The second stage involved a hydrogensulphate ion, HSO4-, which was produced at the same time as the NO2+ ion. This removed a hydrogen from the ring to form sulphuric acid - the catalyst had therefore been regenerated. The electrons which originally joined the hydrogen to the ring were now used to re-establish the delocalised system. Table 1. Observations from the experiment proper Observations: 89 mL conc. H2SO4

    disposable pipettes, a stirring rod, a filter flask, filter paper, a Büchner funnel, distilled water, a watch glass, and litmus paper. The chemicals used in this experiment include 6M of HNO_3 (Nitric Acid), 6M of NaOH (Sodium Hydroxide), 3M of H_2 SO_4(Sulfuric acid), 6M of HCl (Hydrochloric Acid), Zinc, and Copper turnings. The experiment began with setting up the first apparatus by placing the 50 mL beaker on the hot plate and attaching the beaker to the ring stand. Then a fume hood was
