Iron ppt? Inorganic reactions

  1. Sep 12, 2006 #1
    I'm with a small doubt let me show for you:

    I have a solution:
    KNO3 + Fe(SCN)3

    Na2SO4 (aq)

    I would like to know if could happen it?

    ---> NaNO3 + FeSO4↓ppt red + KSCN

    Or plus:

    NaOH (aq)

    Could Happen ?
    ----> NaNO3+ Fe(OH)3 ↓ppt red +KSCN

    Thank you

    Yes, it happened : But
    6KNO3+ 2Fe(SCN)3+ 3Na2SO4---->Fe2(SO4)3 ↓ppt red + 6KSCN (aq) + 6 NaNO3 (aq)

    Now I want to know how precipitate the [SCN] from aqueous solution NaNO3 + KSCN

    Could anyone help me?

    Maybe it could being done add NaOH (aq)?

    NaOH isn't good to precipitate KSCN ...... the KSCN is unsoluble into etanol but is a bit expansive.....until now
