Introduction
Unknown substances can be found everywhere. Whether it is the mysterious crust on the desk, or the sticky material found at the bottom of an unwashed bowl, there is a curiosity as to what that substance could be. In science, the unknown substance is called the analyte (1). The unknown substance, taken from the Gulf of Mexico, is tested to determine the true identity of the substance. In order to find the analyte, there are two different scientific methods that can be applied. The first method is called qualitative analysis. Imagine that the unknown substance is a part of the game Clue, in order to find what it could be, observe the specific characteristics that can be used to identify the substance. This could include the color,

This is a test to see if SO4 is present in the solution. If the mixture has a white precipitate of Barium Sulfate, then the solution has a sulphate ion present (4).
Taking one of the remaining test tubes, add 0.1 mL of BaCl2 into the solution and mix well. HCl Test Fig 5. If HCl is present in the solution, bubbling and a strong smell of ammonium should be present.
Using the remaining test tube, add 0.1 ml of HCl into the solution. Record your findings.
Record Conductivity using Conductivity Meter.

Flame Test
Fig 5. Flame Tests are used to identify the presence of a small number of metal ions in a compounds. The color of the flame is produced by the movement of the electrons in the metal ions found in the compound. (6).
Taking the solution, dip the wire in and soak the tip of the wire.
Place the end of the wire onto an open flame of the bunsen burner, record the findings.
If necessary, repeat any of the previous tests to confirm the solution that is chosen as the correct form.

    In order to identify the anion, we needed to perform four anion reactions: chloride, sulfate, nitrate, and carbonate. To identify a chloride, equal amounts of the unknown solution, 6M HNO3, and AgNO3 are mixed together and if a white precipitate is formed, the test is positive. To identify a sulfate, equal amounts of the unknown, 6M HCl, and BaCl2 are mixed, and the presence of white precipitate yields positive results. To identify a nitrate, mix 1 mL of the unknown with 3 mL of H2SO4 and cool the solution. Then add 2 mL of FeSO4, if a brown ring forms between the two solutions then the test is positive for a nitrate anion.…

    The plate was placed into a mixture of dichloromethane and hexane and allowed to elute. Through capillary action, each solution and the solvent travelled up the TLC plate (Setzer, W., 2008). The solvent travels past each spot on the plate and while the polar silica gel tries to hold the spot in place, the solvent tries to move the spot with it as it travels up the plate. After removed from the solvent, the plate was placed into an iodine chamber in order to be able to visualize the distances the solutions travelled. The crude oil had two spots develop since it contained both Eugenol and eugenol acetate.…

    The iodine reagent is made by dissolving iodine in water mixed with 0.1 M potassium iodide, the bench iodine solution (What is the Iodine Test). Starch is made of bonds of amylose which is composed of a “straight chain of alpha glucose that are connected by alpha 1a4 glycosidic bonds” (Carbohydrates Test). With liquid food samples, 5 drops of iodine solution is dropped into the test tube. So, when the presence of starch is detected, the solution changes to a blue-black color because the starch-iodide combination absorbs light at different wavelengths, resulting in a strong purple color (Ophardt, Starch and Iodine). This type of reaction is made possible by the formation of polyiodide chains produced between the reaction of starch and iodine.…

    The slide was washed, blot, and examine under microspore. C. ACID FAST STAINING: The lipoid capsule of the acid – fast organism takes up carbolfuchsim and resists decolorizatin with a dilute acid rinse. The lipoid capsule of the mycobacterium is of such high molecular weight that it is waxy at room temperature and successful penetration by the aqueous based staining solutions (such as Gram’s) is prevented. PROCEDURE: Smear of organisms to be stained were prepared. & the smears were heat fixes.…

    Ethyl vinyl ether was used to protect –OH on glycidol based on a literature reported protocal.59 In a typical procedure, 0.675 mol glycidol and 200 mL ethyl vinyl ether were loaded in a round-bottom flask, to which 1.25 g TsOH was then added. The reaction was allowed to proceed at room temperature (RT) for 3h. The resulting mixture was then purified by washing with 100 ml saturated aqueous solution of NaHCO3 for 3 times. The organic layer obtained was dried by MgSO4. After filtration of MgSO4, the excess ethyl vinyl ether was removed by rotary evaporation.…

    The addition of H2SO4 will drives off all nitrogen oxide gas that can interfere with the redox reactions. The SO3 vapor that is observed is an indication that all NOx has been driven off. The solution was cooled in ice bath and DI water is added, followed by the addition of NH3 drop wise. The purpose of this step is to create a slightly acidic to neutral solution, which is an ideal condition for the redox reaction as mentioned above. Addition of NH3 will form Cu(NH3)42+,a copper tetramine complex with a dark-blue color, indicating a slightly basic solution.…
