I am in Gen Chem doing qualitative analysis for soluble salts.
Green Salt: XCl2
Blue Salt: XSO4
I know my anions are correct. However, I am unsure about my cations.
What can I add that will give a distinct color to confirm whether what cations I have?
I have deduced that I may have the following cations for my anions:
Green Cl: Ni, Cr, Cu, Fe
Blue SO4: Fe, Cu, Co, Cr
I have HCl, NaOH, NH3, BaCl2, H2S, HNO3, H2SO4, AgNO3, KOH, H2O, (NH4)2C2O4, DMG, H2OH that I can add to a solution of my salt dissolved in water.
