The Effect of Specific Swamping Electrolytes upon the formation Constant of the Monochloroiron(III) Complex Academic Article uri icon


  • The ultraviolet absorption spectrum of the monochloroiron(III) complex in perchloric acid and sodium perchlorate-perchloric acid mixtures was examined. The formation constant increased with increasing swamping electrolyte concentration but decreased when the ratio of sodium perchlorate to perchloric acid increased at constant total molarity. These results were correlated with the effect of the swamping electrolyte upon the activities of the species involved in the equilibria. © 1963, American Chemical Society. All rights reserved.
