Appendix 12 PICTURES of PRECIPITATES and COMPLEX FORMATION
Some 'test tube' pictures of a variety of soluble transition metal complex ions and precipitates of insoluble complexes.
Prior to, and with, excess reagent for selected 3d block aqueous ions.
They can be used as simple tests for identifying transition metal ions.
Text and formula summary of these reactions of 3d block ions is given below but there are more details in most cases in the notes for each metal for ...
[M(H2O)6]n+ where M = metal, n = 2 or 3 and Al3+ for comparison (See Chemical Tests for more precipitates)
... and many are useful simple tests to identify metal ions (ppt. = precipitate, gel. = gelatinous)
For detailed equations of these reactions go to the specific chemistry sections for that metal via the index below
The comparison equations for the aluminium ion (NOT a 3d block metal)
