Reducing Silver Ions With Dextrose

Good Essays
The goal for our lab activity was to make a silver mirror by reducing silver ions with dextrose. The materials that we used were acetone, 5 mL of 1.5 M ammonium nitrate solution (NH4NO3), 5 mL of 0.5 silver nitrate solution (AgNO3), 10 mL of 5% dextrose solution (C6H12O6), 10mL of 10% sodium hydroxide solution (NaOH), a 50 mL beaker, a 250 mL Florence flask with a rubber stopper, a 10 mL graduated cylinder, a waste beaker, and distilled water.
The first thing we did was rinsed the beaker, cylinder, and flask with acetone. To start, we poured the 10 mL of 5% dextrose solution into the flask. Next, we measured 5 mL of 1.5 M ammonium nitrate solution and poured it in the 10 mL beaker. Then we measured 5 mL of 0.5 M silver nitrate solution and

    1. Obtain a 30 cm length of bare copper wire, stirring rod, and 18 x 150 mm test tube. Coil the copper wire by wrapping it around a glass-stirring rod. Stretch the coiled wire until it is about 2 cm longer than the test tube. Leave wire tightly coiled near one end and stretched out and straighten toward the other. Weigh the wire and record it in the data table to the nearest 0.01 grams.…

    In this experiment an alloy of silver will be analyzed to determine its silver content. The silver-copper alloy will be dissolved in nitric acid, the silver will be precipitated as silver chloride, and the silver chloride will be filtered, washed, dried and its mass determined. From the mass of the silver chloride formed and the mass of the original sample, you will be able to calculate the percent of silver in the alloy. Because the results are based on the mass of a product, this procedure is classified as a gravimetric analysis.…

    First, label 6 test tubes a-f. Next, place the 100 mL beaker on the digital scale and zero the scale. Measure 17.1 g of table sugar by putting it in the beaker. Then measure a total of 50 mL of distilled water by using a 25-mL graduated cylinder. Using the stirring rod, slowly add the 50 mL and stir until the sugar is completely dissolved. This is now a 1.0 M (molarity) solution. Label a short stem pipet “DW” (distilled water), which will be used throughout the experiments. Use the 25 mL graduated cylinder to measure 5 mL of distilled water and add that to test tube “a”. Dry the graduated cylinder and wash with distilled water after each step after this. Use the graduated cylinder to measure 1 mL of the 1.0 M sucrose solution and use the “DW” pipet to add 4 mL of distilled water to test tube “b”, which is now a .2 M solution. Then use the graduated cylinder to measure 2 mL of 1.0 M sucrose solution and add 3 mL of distilled water to test tube “c”, which this creates a .4 M solution. Measure 3 mL of 1.0 M sucrose and 2 mL of distilled water to test tube “d”, which then creates the .6 M solution. Measure 4 mL of the 1.0 M sucrose solution and 1 mL of distilled water to test tube “e”, which creates the .8 M solution. Finally, measure 5 mL of the 1.0 M sucrose solution and add to test tube “f”, creating the 1.0 M…

    In the experiment, Silver nanoparticles is used as it has low absorption losses, compared to other metals. The formation of silver nanoparticles is done by depositing of various mass thickness of uniform layer of silver at the rate approximately 2 Å/ s at 1x10−5 Torr. After this, the sample were annealed in nitrogen for 50 min at 200 °C. The particle coalesce together to formed island due to surface tension.…
