Verification of iron(III) mit acetylacetone
acetylacetone Xn R 10-22 S (2)-21-23-24/25
iron(III) chloride solution Xn R 22-38-41 S 26-39
- One adds 1-2 ml iron(III) chloride solution, which should be well diluted, if necessary one further adds distilled water.
- One adds 1 drop of acetylacetone. Immediately a vibrant blood-red color, similiar to the result with thiocyanate, is produced.
- The residues can be discharged into the drainage.
Iron(III) forms with strongly enolic ketones like acetoacetic ester or acetylacetone intensely colored complexes:
