  • Next Lab Reminder
  • Analyze three unknown samples for oxalate via titration.
  • Compare the analytical results of your redox reactions with the percent oxalate in three known compounds.
  • Identify the unknowns.
  • Gain experience in completing a titration without the use of a formal indicator.
redox reactions
Redox Reactions

Half reaction for the oxidation of C2O42-:

C2O42-(aq) 2CO2(g) + 2e-

Half reaction for the reduction of Mn7+:

8H+(aq) + MnO4-(aq) + 5e- Mn2+(aq) + 4H2O(l)

Complete reaction:

16H+(aq) + 5C2O42-(aq) + 2MnO4-(aq) 10CO2(g) + 8H2O(l) + 2Mn2+(aq)

  • Start off with a known mass of unknown oxalate compound.
  • Determine the moles of oxalate in the unknown by performing a titration with permanganate.
  • At the point where all the oxalate has reacted with the permanganate we are adding by way of the buret, we see a color change from yellow to light pink.
  • This end point is indicative of passing the equivalence point slightly. An end point error is introduced and needs to be minimized as much as possible.
  • From the known concentration and measured volume of permanganate added, we calculate the moles of oxalate, keeping in mind our stoichiometric ratio given by the complete reaction (2:5).
calculation sequence
Calculation Sequence

Sample calculations are on pp. 222 and 223

  • Percent oxalate in your “known” compounds
  • Moles of permanganate
  • Moles of oxalate
  • Mass of oxalate
  • Percent oxalate present by mass
  • Percent error (experimental values compared to “known” values)
safety concerns
Safety Concerns
  • Reagents:
    • Oxalate salts
    • Potassium permanganate
    • Sulfuric acid
    • Sodium meta-bisulfite
  • Inhalation:
    • Poisonous! Nervousness, cramps, CNS depression, burns / irritation to respiratory tract, irritation of nose and throat, difficulty breathing, lung edema, damage to mucosa, coughing, shortness of breath, allergic reaction.
  • Ingestion:
    • Poisonous! Burns of the throat, mouth and stomach, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, edema, hypotension, circulatory collapse, gastric irritation, asthma, diarrhea, death.
  • Skin Contact:
    • Redness, itching, pain, burning, blurred vision, circulatory collapse, irritation, death.
  • Eye Contact:
    • Irritation, redness, pain, irreversible eye damage.
  • Oxalate solid goes in the garbage.
  • Pink, yellow and orange solutions must be disposed in the acid waste container in the fume hood.
  • Purple solutions must go in the permanganate waste container in the fume hood.
  • Small quantities of excess H2SO4can be used in your experiment.
