    The presence of some halide ions in solution can be detected using aqueous silver nitrate and aqueous ammonia.

    Identify a halide ions which,on addition of aqueous silver nitrate, forms a precipitate that is insoluble in concentrated aqueous ammonia.

    A mixture of two precipitates P and Q was formed by adding aqueous silver nitrate to a solution containing two different halide ions. Precipitate P dissolved on addition of an excess of dilute aqueous ammonia. The remaining precipitate, Q was filtered off.


    Identify the halide ions in P


    Precipitate Q was soluble in concentrated aqueous ammonia. Identify the halide ions in Q.

    You know that the precipitate is a silver halide. It is now a matter of finding the solubility of silver halides in ammonia solutions. You can easily look this up.

    Identify a halide ions which cannot be detected using these reagents.

    Reactions with silver nitrate:
    fluoride ion does not react
    chloride ion forms white ppt
    bromide ion forms cream ppt
    iodide ion forms yellow ppt

    When ammonia is added:
    chloride (AgCl) ppt dissolves in dilute ammonia
    bromide (AgBr) ppt dissolves in concentrated ammonia
    iodide (AgI) ppt does not dissolve

    Iodide ion forms a yellow ppt but it does not dissolve when concentrated ammonia is added.

    Fluoride ions cannot be detected using these reagents because fluoride does not form ppt when silver nitrate is added.

    Is the first bit silver iodide

    Silver iodide. Then what's next
