Synthesis of a Coordination Compound Inquiry Guidance/AP* Chem Curriculum Alignment Transition Guide

firewatch

Coordination compounds are interesting substances. They are usually highly colored and produce beautiful crystals. In this lab, green crystals of the coordination compound potassium trioxalatoferrate(III) trihydrate will be synthesized. The crystals are then analyzed to determine their identity, purity and the percent yield of the product.
