This Powerpoint show is one of several produced to help students understand
selected topics at AS and A2 level Chemistry. It is based on the requirements of
the AQA and OCR specifications but is suitable for other examination boards.
Individual students may use the material at home for revision purposes or it may
be used for classroom teaching if an interactive white board is available.
Accompanying notes on this, and the full range of AS and A2 topics, are available
from the KNOCKHARDY SCIENCE WEBSITE at...

THE AQUEOUS CHEMISTRY OF IONS - HYDROLYSIS
when salts dissolve in water the ions are stabilised
this is because water molecules are polar
hydrolysis can occur and the resulting solution can become acidic
the acidity of the resulting solution depends on the cation present
the greater the charge density of the cation, the more acidic the solution

THE AQUEOUS CHEMISTRY OF IONS
Theory
aqueous metal ions attract water molecules
many have six water molecules surrounding them
these are known as hexaaqua ions
they are octahedral in shape
water acts as a Lewis Base – a lone pair donor
water forms a co-ordinate bond to the metal ion
metal ions accept the lone pair - Lewis Acids

Theory

water acts as a Lewis Base – a lone pair donor
water forms a co-ordinate bond to the metal ion
metal ions accept the lone pair - Lewis Acids
Acidity
as charge density increases, the cation has a greater attraction for water
the attraction extends to the shared pair of electrons in water’s O-H bonds
the electron pair is pulled towards the O, making the bond more polar
this makes the H more acidic (more d+)
it can then be removed by solvent water molecules to form H3O+(aq).
HYDROLYSIS - EQUATIONS
M2+ ions
[M(H2O)6]2+(aq) + H2O(l)
[M(H2O)5(OH)]+(aq) + H3O+(aq)
the resulting solution will now be acidic as there are more protons in the water
this reaction is known as hydrolysis - the water causes the substance to split up
Stronger bases (e.g. CO32- , NH3 and OH¯ ) can remove further protons...

M3+ ions
[M(H2O)6]3+(aq) + H2O(l)
[M(H2O)5(OH)]2+(aq) + H3O+(aq)
the resulting solution will also be acidic as there are more protons in the water
this SOLUTION IS MORE ACIDIC due to the greater charge density of 3+ ions
Stronger bases (e.g. CO32- , NH3 and OH¯ ) can remove further protons...
HYDROLYSIS OF HEXAAQUA IONS
Lewis bases can attack the co-ordinated water molecules. Theoretically, a proton can be
removed from each water molecule turning the water from a neutral molecule to a
negatively charged hydroxide ion. This affects the overall charge on the complex ion.

REACTION TYPES
The examples aim to show typical properties of transition metals and their compounds.
One typical properties of transition elements is their ability to form complex ions.
Complex ions consist of a central metal ion surrounded by co-ordinated ions or
molecules known as ligands. This can lead to changes in ...
• colour
• shape

inorganic chemistry.

It must be acidified with dilute sulphuric acid as MnO4¯ is powerful enough to oxidise
the chloride ions in hydrochloric acid.
It is used to estimate iron(II), hydrogen peroxide, ethanedioic (oxalic) acid and
ethanedioate (oxalate) ions. The last two titrations are carried out above 60°C due to
the slow rate of reaction.
No indicator is required; the end point being the first sign of a permanent pale pink

OXIDATION & REDUCTION - A SUMMARY
Oxidation
• complex transition metal ions are stable in acid solution
• complex ions tend to be less stable in alkaline solution
• in alkaline conditions they form neutral hydroxides and/or anionic complexes
• it is easier to remove electrons from neutral or negatively charged species
• alkaline conditions are usually required

Fe(OH)2(s) + OH¯(aq) ——> Fe(OH)3(s) + e¯
Co(OH)2(s) + OH¯(aq) ——> Co(OH)3(s) + e¯
2Cr3+(aq) + 3H2O2(l) + 10OH¯(aq) ——> 2CrO42-(aq) + 8H2O(l)
• Solutions of cobalt(II) can be oxidised by air under ammoniacal conditions
[Co(NH3)6]2+(aq) ——> [Co(NH3)6]3+(aq) + e¯
OXIDATION & REDUCTION - A SUMMARY
Oxidation
• complex transition metal ions are stable in acid solution
• complex ions tend to be less stable in alkaline solution
• in alkaline conditions they form neutral hydroxides and/or anionic complexes
• it is easier to remove electrons from neutral or negatively charged species
• alkaline conditions are usually required
e.g.
Fe(OH)2(s) + OH¯(aq) ——> Fe(OH)3(s) + e¯
Co(OH)2(s) + OH¯(aq) ——> Co(OH)3(s) + e¯
2Cr3+(aq) + 3H2O2(l) + 10OH¯(aq) ——> 2CrO42-(aq) + 8H2O(l)
• Solutions of cobalt(II) can be oxidised by air under ammoniacal conditions
[Co(NH3)6]2+(aq) ——> [Co(NH3)6]3+(aq) + e¯
Reduction
• Zinc metal is used to reduce transition metal ions to lower oxidation states
• It acts in acid solution as follows... Zn(s) ——> Zn2+(aq) + 2e¯
e.g. it reduces
iron(III) to iron(II)
vanadium(V) to vanadium (IV) to vanadium(III)
REACTIONS OF ALUMINIUM
• aluminium is not a transition metal as it doesn’t make use of d orbitals
• BUT, due to a high charge density, aluminium ions behave as typical M3+ ions
• aqueous solutions contain the colourless, octahedral hexaaquaaluminium(III) ion
OH¯

——>
3H2O(l)
A-B
[Al(OH)3(H2O)3](s) + 3H+ (aq) ——> [Al(H2O)6]3+(aq)
being a 3+ hydroxide it is AMPHOTERIC and dissolves in excess alkali

2 [Al(H2O)6]3+(aq) + 3CO32-(aq) ——> 2[Al(OH)3(H2O)3](s) + 3H2O(l) + 3CO2(g)
As with 3+ ions, the carbonate is not precipitated but the hydroxide is.
