An Investigation of the Order of the reaction of Iodine with Propanone

Extracts from this document...


Chemistry TAS Report 1. Experiment Number : 5 2. Date : 05/11/2007 3. Title : An Investigation of the Order of the reaction of Iodine with Propanone 4. Aims/Objective : To determine the order of the reaction of Iodine with Propanone. 5. Introduction / Theory: This reaction is first order with respect to propanone and first order with respect to the hydrogen ions which the reaction is catalyzed by. The order with respect to iodine can be determined by having a reaction mixture which the initial concentrations of propanone and hydrogen ions are very much larger than that of iodine. And only the concentration of the iodine is varied during the reaction and thus its effect on the reaction rate can be seen. The above reaction can be followed by monitoring the concentration of iodine. The steps, samples from the reaction mixture from time to time are removed and these are analyzed for iodine, are involved. ...read more.


0.0 5.0 10.0 15.0 2. 50.0 cm3 OF 0.02 M iodine solution was added by measuring cylinder to the propanone mixture as quickly as possible. Stop watch was started at the same time. And the content was mixed. 3. During the 5 minutes interval , 10.0 cm3 of the 0.5 M sodium hydrogencarbonate solution was measured and then added into another conical flask . 4. After 5 minutes, 10.0 cm3 of the reaction mixture was pipetted into the conical flask prepared in step 4. When it was done, the time should be noted. 5. The solution in step 4 was mixed and then titrated with 0.01 M sodium thiosulphate(VI) solution. Starch solution was used as indicator. 6. After 10, 15, 20, 25 and 30 minutes, 10 cm3 portions of the reaction mixtures in step 2 were withdrawn and the above procedure was then carried out each time. ...read more.


f) The order of reaction with respect to iodine is zero, i.e. n = 0 g) Iodine does not take part in the rate determining step of this reaction. h) The intercept of the graph with the y-axis is the initial concentration of iodine. i) The concentration of the sodium thiosulphate(VI) solution is 0.01M. 3. Group / Pair No. A B C D Gradient of graph / cm3min-1 - 0.284 - 0.255 - 0.220 - 0.180 [ The required graph please refer to Appendix 2. ] a) The gradient of the graph in Discussion 1 is directly proportional to the rate of reaction and volume of propanone solution is also directly proportional to its concentration. Since a straight line is plotted in the graph above, rate of reaction is directly proportional to the concentration of propanone. Thus, the order of the reaction with respect to propanone is 1. b) Rate equation : Rate=k[CH3COCH3]a[I2]b[H+]c Since b = 0 and [H+] = constant So, rate = k[CH3COCH3]1 ...read more.

    I ran the sulfuric acid through quickly and made sure that the end point was defiantly reached by creating a darker pink solution. My second titration I did, 'Titration 1' I used to see how far from the endpoint I was.

    This will ensure us that the endpoint is reached, so the results will be more reliable if the flask is well swirled. As approaching the endpoint, the colour of the solution in the flask will be definitely changing, so we open the stopcock partially and deliver H2SO4 dropwise until the endpoint is finally approached.

  1. effects Concentration and Temperature on the Rate of Reaction

    Activation Enthalpy: (1, pg 224/225) The Activation Enthalpy is described as the minimum amount of kinetic energy needed before a collision will occur between two molecules. This energy is needed for bonds in the reactants to be broken and new bonds in the products to be formed.

  2. Chemistry Iodine Clock

    - Increasing surface area of the solid Large lump of solid substrate will have a smaller surface area for other reactants to react on so the rate of reaction will be slow. If the solid substrate was smaller e.g. powder the surface area would be much bigger and the reactants would easily react thus increasing the rate of reaction.

  1. The Effects of Strong and Weak Acids on the Order of a Reaction.

    The concentration of something is the number of moles of a product per given volume. SO the increase in concentration means that more particles are in closer contact with each other and the collision between the correct molecules is more likely.

  2. Aim To study the effect of concentration of iodide ion ...

    As the concentration decreases, the iodide particles per volume decrease. Consequently, as the iodide particles per volume decrease, with all other variables remain equal, the probability of collision between iodide and peroxodisulphate ions, would decrease. By extension, the number of effective collisions would also decrease.

  1. Planning an investigation to determine the reactivity of HalogenoAlkanes

    The polar nature of the C-Hal bond makes it susceptible to attack from a nucleophile (an electron lone pair donor); in this instance, where I will be using an aqueous solution of Silver Nitrate, H2O will act as the nucleophile and perform nucleophilic substitution on the halogenoalkane.

  2. Esters investigation.

    That means you need more energy to separate them, and so increases the melting points. The greater the extents of the unsaturation in the molecules, the lower the melting points tend to be because the Vander Waals dispersion forces are less effective.
