1 of the greatest chemicals-Aluminium-*delete me*
« on: March 04, 2006, 08:24:40 AM »
Aluminium...
ive got to answer a whole load of questions on aluminium...such as why would it be difficult to form an Al ion?
Al(H2O)6 is a common complex of ion in solution. why?
what would happen if NaOH (aq) was added dropwise to a solution of Al(NO3)3 (aq)? write an equation for this....and many more...
can anyone help me?that would be great.. i could then go and eat a trifle without feeling guilty..
thanks

It yields trihydroxyaluminum Al(OH)3, whose Ksp is very low. While Al(NO3)3 is soluble.

That's only first half of the story. Al(OH)3 is amphoteric.

Oh, yes, indeed. Going on adding OH-, you'll dissolve your precipitate.

For what concerns the other two questions:

- Do you know what Fajans rules are? (for the former)
- Think about the dimension and charge of Al3+, for the latter.
