Qualitative Analysis - Group I Cations

Qualitative Analysis - Group I Cations

A simulated experiment on qualitative analysis of the Group I cations. User may select solutions containing known cations, unknown cations as a trial experiment, or unknown cations as an assigned experiment. Results are graded in the trial mode. In the assigned mode, the results may be printed out to be handed in. Instructors may contact the author regarding the key for unknowns.... Show More

This simulation was an excellent introduction for my general chemistry students to the basics of qualitative analysis and to following an associated flow chart. Students found the software easy to use, thought the animation was charming, and thoroughly enjoyed testing unknowns in a risk-free environment. An excellent pre-lab activity!

Very good applet and flow charts are great, but it would be good to have more on the theory as to why you're doing what you're doing.
