Cobalt (Ii) Oxygen
Inorganic 461 lab
This experiment uses Co(salen) as a model compound illustrating the uptake of oxygen in hemoglobin. SalenH2 was prepared as the intermediate, and reacted with hydrated cobalt to prepare Co(salen). Using Co(salen) the oxygen up-take was tested. The synthesis of SalenH2 produced 0.65 g. The percent yield of salenH2 was 116% on the filter paper and 105% after transferring salenH2 to a vial. The melting point of salenH2, was 128 oC. The color of salenH2 was yellow. This was all expected from salenH2. The synthesis of Co(salen) produced 0.232 g. The percent yield of Co(salen) was 88.22% on the filter paper and 86.1 % after transferring the Co(salen) to a vial. Co(salen) …show more content…

Part A: Syntheses of salenH2
To determine the liming reagent, the following calculations were needed.
Calculations for limiting reagent:
ρ salicyladhyde=1.146 g/ml 450μL=400*10-3ml (amount used)(density)(1FW)=mol (calculation 1)
(450μL Salicyladehyde)(1.146g1ml)(1mol122.12 g Salicyladehyde )(1 mol salenH22 mol salicyladhyde)= 2.11mmol salenH2
Ethylenediamine was calculated using equation 1: ρ Ethylenediamine=0.899 g/ml 140
