Identification of unknowns unknowns test for the other unknown most organic compounds are not water soluble is the same except wherever it says acid,. Potentiometric titration of an unknown weak monoprotic acid east stroudsburg university chemistry 371 fall, 2008 introduction the purpose of this experiment is to perform a potentiometric titration of an acid using a. Naoh standardization and titration of an unknown organic acid overview: methods for counting the number of molecules in a sample is a major.
Identification of an unknown organic compound the oxidation product of a primary alcohol is the organic acid, while oxidation of a secondary alcohol yields the. Ha represents unknown acid, a- is its conjugate base, and pka is the negative log of the acid dissociation constant [a-]=[ha] halfway from initial and equivalence point log (1)=0 and so ph=pka. The components will be unknown to the student except that one will be a liquid neutral organic compound with a high boiling point and the other a carboxylic acid the carboxylic acid can react with a base such as sodium hydroxide to form an anion which is water soluble. Abstract identifying this organic acid was an extensive task that involved several different experiments firstly, the melting point had to be determined since melting point can be determined to an almost exact degree, finding a close melting point of the specific unknown can accurately point to the identification of the acid. The analysis and identification of unknown organic compounds constitutes a very important aspect of experimental organic chemistry there is no definite set procedure that can be generally applied to organic qualitative analysis.
If soluble, then your unknown is behaving as an organic acid the most common organic acids are carboxylic acids and phenols carboxylic acids are usually considered stronger acids than phenols, but both of these acids will react with naoh (a strong base. Abstract organic minerals, organic acids and nh-containing organic molecules represent important target molecules for astrobiology here, we present the results of the evaluation of a portable hand-held raman spectrometer to detect these organic compounds outdoors under field conditions. Identifying an unknown compound can be a tedious and exacting task in identifying a compound, a chemist often measures several physical properties (melting point, boiling point, density, etc) and observes a few. Identify an unknown compound by its melting point a pure crystalline organic compound usually has a palmitic acid 61-63 acetamide 79-81. Therefore, dichlorobenzoic acid (cl2c6h3cooh) is the name of this organic acid unknown the accuracy of this assumption is determined from the data from three of the experiments: melting point, equivalent weight, and pka.
Organic base organic salt of the three organic acid groups listed above, the sulfonic acids are the strongest, followed by the carboxylic acids, and then the phenols. Identification of unknowns marks a point of mastery within an organic chemistry lab, because it involves the unification of a series of systematic tests, observations, and analysis that, only when considered all together, can provide the complete picture of the identity of a compound. Best answer: you're being asked to identify the acid by its pka if you titrated a strong acid like hcl, you won't be able to identify it except to say that it's a strong acid, because the pka of a strong acid is less than the pka of h3o+ and so you're past the pka of the acid before you even begin titrating.
