1516L - Qualitative Analysis of Group III Cations

This experiment is close to that found in the Catalyst lab manual with a few minor modifications. For this week you should read the Lab Manual material for "Experiment 9: Qualitative Analysis of Group III Cations," but bear in mind that we will not be analyzing cations from Groups 4 and 5.

The flow chart from the lab manual for this experiment should be followed in order to identify the cations in your unknown sample. There might be 2, 3, or 4 Group III cations in each unknown.

When the experiment is complete, dispose of any waste, return the solutions and test tubes to the front bench and clean up the balance room and your work area as needed.
