Quantitative and qualitative analysis 2



Quantitative and qualitative analysis 2

Performance objectives

Students should be able to:

  1. Identify various tests for cations and anions.
  2. Identify tests for hydrogen, oxygen, ammonia, etc.


Qualitative analysis

This is the process by which the components of mixtures are separated and identified.

Unlike quantitative analysis, where the amount of a particular material is measured, a qualitative analysis scheme simply confirms the presence or absence of a certain material.

A common analysis is the identification of aqueous ions.in such an analysis, there are two distinct phases. First, a scheme is developed to separate the ions from each other.

Once the ion in a mixture has been separated, their identity can further be verified by a confirmatory test.
