  • Electrolytes: Magnesium - 4128 Words
    Electrolyte is a scientific term for salts, specifically ions. The term electrolyte means that this ion is electrically-charged and moves to either a negative or positive electrode. Ions that move to the negative which are called cations are positively charged and Ions that move to the positive which are called anions are negatively charged. They can be divided into acids, bases, and salts, because they all give ions when dissolved in water. Electrolytes are present in the human body, and the...

    Abstract This report presents the synthesis of triphenylmethanol from magnesium, bromobenzene, and benzophenone. A reflux apparatus was used to carry out most of the experiment. A great deal of color changes were noted throughout this process. Triphenylmethanol was successfully synthesized, as can be verified by the IR that was obtained. The melting point was found to be 98.30°C- 146.2°C and the percent yield of triphenylmethanol was calculated to be 61.2%. Introduction One of the most...

    The Magnesium Oxide Lab In a compound the atoms of different elements are present in numbers whose ratio is usually an integer or a simple fraction. The simplest (or empirical) formula of the compound expresses that ratio. Simplest formulas are determined by establishing the mass of each element present in a sample of the compound. From those masses one finds the number of moles of each element present. The mole ratio is also the atom ratio in the compound and that ratio provides the...

    Abstract: The purpose of this lab is to prepare phenylmagnesium bromide, a Grignard reagent, and react it with benzophenone to give triphenylmethanol. Once made, the Grignard reagent will do a nucleophilic attack on the carbonyl carbon of the ketone, benzophenone. The result is an alkoxide that is then protonated to give the alcohol, triphenylmethanol. The purity of the final product will then be considered by melting point and IR spectroscopy. Final purified triphenylmethanol weighed 8.02...
