    structure of matter, and the processes utilized to do so (Analytical Chemistry, n.d.). A lot of the times in chemistry people want to explore a compound, analyzing it to see what components are used to create that said compound and there are many different methods that can be used to help isolate those different components. The purpose of this lab is to utilize gravimetrical analysis to isolate and determine the percent composition of chloride present in an unknown compound. Gravimetrical analysis utilizes precipitation that results in the isolation of specific substance based on the reaction that is used. Once the substance has precipitated it is able to be washed and weighed, which in turn reveals the composition of the original compound in terms of how much of that specific substance was present in the original compound (Gravimetric Analysis, n.d.). A precipitate forms what two salts that are soluble together to form one or more insoluble products, which is the precipitate (Definition of Precipitate, n.d.). An example of a precipitate is silver chloride; it is created when a sufficient amount of…

    Tin was really popular during the civil war. This tin filling was used when the patient couldn’t afford the gold filling. The tin filling also could sometimes be placed in places where the gold fillings could not fit. Platinum was used occasionally during the 19th century. Platinum was only occasionally used because it’s too hard to be formed in to a foil. [2] Silver was a popular filling also during the 19th century but like platinum was hard to be used. Both silver and platinum are less…

    The D-glucose serves to reduce the silver from Ag1- to Ag1+. The sodium citrate first reduces Ag1+ to Ag, and then functions to bind with the particle surface of silver nitrate particles to allow them to interact. Finally, silver nitrate can aggregate. The silver nitrate combined with D-glucose, sodium citrate, and heat forms an aggregate. The citrate binds with the particle coating and dispels the repulsion between silver nitrate nanoparticles. The nanoparticles then form an aggregate-- a loose…

    Gold is widely used in modern day medicine to treat disorders. This is because gold is very resistant to bacteria. Bacteria are microscopic single-celled organisms. Bacteria are prokaryotes, meaning the entire organism consists of a single cell with a simple internal structure. The DNA of a prokaryote is neatly packed in the nucleus. The bacterial DNA floats freely in a twisted thread-like mass called the nucleoid. Gold is unaffected by almost everything. The only materials that can affect gold…

    One of the earliest metals to be discovered, lead has a long history with mankind. It was first discovered around 7000 BC as a byproduct of silver smelting. Lead is metal known for its resistance against corrosion, malleability, and low melting point. Mined all across the world, lead was one of the most important metals in ancient times. Although lead was toxic, it was used widely, particularly in the Roman Empire. Through its uses and toxicity, lead affected the classical era in a drastic way. …

    A polymer is a large molecule which is formed by repeated linkage of small molecule called monomers. Conducting polymer have been the subjects for many decades as possible synthetic metals. Many of these polymer, especially those with a conjugated pi-bond system ,often yield higher conductivity once having undergone the doping process. Polymers are typically insulators due to their very high resistivity .Insulators have tightly bound electrons so that nearly no electron flow occurs ,and they…
