Copper Iodide Lab Report

Amazing Essays
Pure Copper Iodide were synthesised and the mass percentage of Copper in purified Copper (I) Iodide sample were determined by applying Beer’s Law in UV-Vis spectroscopy. Absorbance value of Cu-cuprizone solution was measured. Using the absorbance value of 0.3576 , the concentration of the Cu-cuprizone solution were obtained at 0.001389g/L with reference to the graph of the standard solution A to D. The graph of absorbance against concentration of the standard solution A to D shows a linear relationship hence absorbance is proportional to the concentration. This concentration obtained would be used for the calculation of the mass percentage of copper in purified CuI. The percentage mass of copper in purified CuI were then compared with the theoretical …show more content…
10g of KI in 15ml of deionised water were warmed. Suction filtration was carried out. Hot KI was used to wash the residue. While stirring the filtrate, 200ml of deionised water were added. The beaker was left in an ice bath for 10 minutes. The solution was then decanted. After weighing a centrifuge tube, add 10ml of ethanol to the suspension in the tube. 2ml of ethanol washings in the beaker were transferred to the centrifuge tube. Centrifugation was carried out once for ethanol and twice more for diethyl ether. Centrifuge tube was then placed into a 60oC water bath for 15 minutes. The mass of purified CuI was weighed and recorded.
Part 4
40mg of purified CuI was weighed and was added into a solution of 6ml of 5M of NH4OH and 200ml of water. Solution was transferred to 250ml volumetric flask. Ph was adjusted to 8-9 by adding 6 drops of 10% ammonium citrate. 1ml of solution was dispensed from a burette. 2ml of 10% ammonium citrate and 10ml of deionised water were added. 10 drops of 5M of NH4OH and 3ml of 0.1% cuprizone solution were added. Solution was transferred to a 25ml volumetric flask, UV-VIS absorption spectrum of 400-700nm was carried out and absorbance were measure at 600nm.

    A series of standard solutions of concentrations in the range of 3-60µg/mL were obtained by further dilution of the aliquots with methanol. All the solutions were stored at -20oC and were equilibrated to room temperature prior to use. To prepare the standard calibration samples, 50µL of standard solution and 100µL of Acetonitrile were added to 100µL of blank plasma. The mixture was vortex-mixed for 10 min, followed by centrifugation at 4000 rpm for 15 min. 20µLof the supernatant was taken, then filtered through 0.22µm size syringe filter, and injected in HPLC for analysis.…

    Preparation of coating solutions Chitosan solution was prepared with 2 % (w/v) chitosan in 1% (v/v) acetic acid glacial. The solution was placed on a hot plate/magnetic stirrer for 6 h. The resultant chitosan-based coating solution was filtrated, through a Whatman filter paper No: 2, glycerol was added at 0.75 % (w/v), and stirred for more than 15 minutes. Two of the best concentrations, 60 and 90 mg mL−1 were prepared from freeze-dried IgY for S. putrefaciens and P. fluorescens respectively. After centrifugation (10000 ×g) for 30 min, the supernatant was collected and sterilized by filtrating, through a 0.22 µm micro-filter. Finally, IgY was added to chitosan-based coating solution.…

    The ter-polymerization solution was left for 24 hr at room temperature to complete the polycondensation reaction. Ammonia solution, 10 mL of 33 % NH4OH diluted by 20 mL of distilled water, was added drop wisely until a deep brown precipitate was produced. The filtered precipitate (EB) was washed with sufficient amount of deionized water then washed by ethanol to remove residual oxidant, unreacted monomer and oligomer until the filtrate became colorless and oven dried at 60 °C for overnight. The deep brown dried powder produces PANI-AA-o-PDA (PAAAPDAK1). The gained terpolymer yield was calculated to be 88.3 % utilizing the subsequent compatible…
