In the qualitative test for nitrate anion, the test goes like this: -
Add dilute sodium hydroxide, then add a little aluminium powder. Warm.

When describing the test, is it acceptable to use the word "mixture" as in "warm the mixture"? thanks.

  • Chemistry -

    Yes, there are unreacted ions present, there is ammonia gas dissolved in the solution.
