Solid-State Reaction


in analytical chemistry, a chemical reaction between solids, the occurrence of which is detected by a characteristic color. Solid-state reactions also include reactions that result in the precipitation or dissolution of a colored deposit.

The procedure for carrying out analytical solid-state reactions is simple: small amounts (of the order of 1 mg) of a reagent and of the substance to be tested are mixed on a strip of filter paper or in a porcelain crucible, and the resulting color is observed. This method can be used to detect, for example, Ni2+ in its salts; here, small amounts of dimethylglyoxime and (NH4)2CO3 are added to the sample, as a result of which red dimethylglyoximine, Ni(C4H7O2N)2, is observed. Salts of Pb2+ react with KI to yield yellow Pbl2, and salts of Fe3+ react with K4Fe(CN)6 to give Prussian blue, Fe4[Fe(CN6)]3.

Solid-state reactions can be used in the field to identify minerals, ores, and chemical fertilizers. They can also be used to test pharmaceuticals.
