The chromium atoms are joined together by a quadruple bond, and the molecule has D4h symmetry ignoring the position of the hydrogen atoms. Warming with stirring aids the dissolution process. Filter the chromous acetate on a Buchner funnel using 2 pieces of filter paper and no vacuum.
Also many analogues have been prepared using other carboxylic acids in place of acetate and using different bases in place of the water. During the reduction the flask is kept immersed in a cold water bath. Laboratory manual of inorganic preparations, by H.
Concentrate the solution nearly to dryness by warming it. Multiple Bonds Between Metal Atoms.

Immediately stopper the flask and cool by swirling in running water. In the meantime, a sintered glass funnel, inches in diameter, is fitted with an inlet and exit tube for carbon dioxide and with a 60 ml dropping funnel, preferably long-stemmed.
Allow the mixture to cool to room temperature and collect the precipitate by suction filtration using a Buchner funnel. Your product should be brick red in colour, if it turns gray-green, the Cr II has been oxidized to Cr III and the product can be discarded. Wash the blue solid with three 50 mL portions of warm water.
The reaction mixture is now suction-filtered under a good flow of carbon dioxidethe funnel being uncapped briefly to add the remainder of the solution and precipitate. Structure[ edit ] The Cr2 OAc 4 H2O 2 molecule contains two atoms of chromiumtwo ligated molecules of water, and four acetate bridging ligands.
When the reduction is complete, as evidenced by a pure blue color with no trace of green in the reaction mixture, the clamp on B is closed carbon dioxide flow is maintained and the solution forced, under pressure of inert gas, through D below the surface of a solution of 84 g of sodium acetate trihydrate in ml of cold, freshly boiled, distilled water.
The Synthesis and Characterization of Inorganic Compounds. B is fitted with a stopcock C or with a pinch clamp. Also many analogues have been prepared using other carboxylic acids in place of acetate and using different bases in place of the water.
A light blue solid, copper II hydroxide precipitates during this time. Transfer the product and filter paper into a mL beaker and let dry under a stream of nitrogen in the fume hood. A red precipitate of chromous acetate forms.
The coordination environment around each chromium atom consists of four oxygen atoms one from each acetate ligand in a square, one water molecule in an axial positionand the other chromium atom opposite the water moleculegiving each chromium centre an octahedral geometry.
A third delivery tube Dbent twice at right angles, is also attached to the flask.
A steady stream of carbon dioxide is admitted through A, which is adjusted to about one inch from the surface of the reaction mixture. Transfer the product, when dry, to a vial, flush the vial with N2 and seal the screwcap with parafilm. A muddy blue or greenish-blue color indicates the presence of chromium III which will cause the formation of chromic hydroxide.
