Qualitative Analysis Inorganic chemistry

Qualitative analysis is used to identify compounds. Those compounds can be metals, cations, anions, gases. These several compounds can be in a single mixture. Therefore we have to follow a specified procedure to identify these compounds one by one. There are many different experiments to identify different compounds. In qualitative analysis, we observe after a reaction

  • forming a colourful solution
  • forming a precipitate
  • emitting a gas or gases

to decide which compounds, ions are presence.
