Classic Chemistry Experiments : The reduction of iron oxide by carbon

Description

Metals high in the reactivity series will reduce the oxides of those lower in the series. The oxides of metals between zinc and copper in the reactivity series can be reduced by carbon. In this experiment, sodium carbonate is used to fuse the reactants in intimate contact.
