We will explore using the chemical properties of compounds to identify an unknown liquid based on its characteristic chemical reactions we will become familiar with the signs and observations that you will also be given an unknown sample that will be identical to one of the solid samples after testing the known laboratory 4. Chemistry 108, spring 2008 lab 7: unknown white powder lab goals: the goal of this lab is to identify all five of the unknown white powders you are given each of these powders can be superficially described as a “dry white powder”, but they have number given to you in the lab for each of the five white solids as with the pre-lab. Some chemists try to figure out what's in that bottle that uncle merle had in the lab out in the back shed, while others try to figure out whether evilcorp was dumping toxic waste directly into the mouths of endangered squirrels identifying unknown substances posted on october 22, s organic chemistry (3) t solids, identifying.
Identifying an unknown aldehyde or ketone introduction the purpose of this lab is to identify an unknown aldehyde or ketone substance using chemical tests the chemical tests used in this experiment are solubility, schiff, bisulfite, and iodoform tests. If you want to use the melting point to identify a solid compound that you have isolated in the lab, you will need to compare its melting point with that of the true compound measurements of the melting point of a solid will provide you with information about the purity of the substance.
