Microscale Chemistry: The periodic table - solubility of sulphates and carbonates of groups 1 and 2


In this experiment you will be looking to see whether precipitates form when you add drops of solutions of sulphates or carbonates to drops of solutions of group 1 or 2 metal ions.



This section provides information about some of the apparatus, solutions and techniques that are needed in the microscale chemistry experiments described in this book.
