Strong solution ammonium acetate lab experiment

Formula:

IngredientsQty givenQty takenActivity
Glacial acetic acid453 gIn situ ammonium acetate formation.
Ammonium  bicarbonate470 g
Ammonium solution strong100 ml or q.sNeutralizing agent
Purified Waterq.s to 1000 ml

Procedure:

Glacial acetic acid, ammonium bicarbonate was mixed in 350 ml of purified water.

Strong ammonia solution was added to the above solution until a drop of resulting solution when added to 10 drops of water  and one drop of bromothymol blue gave a full blue colour and one drop tested with to 10 drops of water   and one drop of thymol blue gave a full yellow colour.

The solution was diluted with water to make up the volume. Solution was filled in lead free glass container.

Category:

Mild expectorant, diaphoretic and diuretic

 Dose:

1 to 5 ml.

Storage:

Store in cool, dry place.

Labeling Direction:

Ammonium acetate 55 to 60 % W/V

Theory:

Ammonium acetate is prepared in situ by a chemical reaction.

NH4 H CO3  +CH3 COOH                   CH3 COONH4  + CO2   +     H2O

 Excess acid is added which is not completely neutralized, dilute solutions are used to give a faster reaction to obtain the solution of desired strength. Ammonia is added to obtain a condition of complete neutralization. (pH 7 to 8).      

How to prepare ammonium acetate (1.0 N solution)


To 700 ml of distilled water (in a 1L-glass beaker), 57 ml of acetic acid, and 68 ml of ammonium hydroxide were added and mix together.

The solution in the beaker was then stirred using a magnetic stirrer. The pH of the solution was adjusted to pH 7.0 by adding using droplet acid (acetic acid) or base (ammonium hydroxide).
The solution was then transferred to a 1-L volumetric flask and top up to the mark with distilled water.

4 g of air-dried and pulverized soil was accurately weighed into a plastic centrifuge tube. 33 ml of ammonium acetate solution was added and was shaken in a mechanical shaker for 1 hour. Then, the tube was centrifuged and the clear supernatant was decanted into 100ml volumetric flask.

The procedures above were repeated twice on the same soil and all supernatants were placed into the same flask and top-up to the mark with distilled water. It was then analyzed for cations using ICPAES

What is the spirit of Mindererus

Ammonium acetate, also known as the spirit of Mindererus in aqueous solution, is a chemical compound with the formula NH4CH3CO2. It is a white, hygroscopic solid and can be derived from the reaction of ammonia and acetic acid. It is available commercially
