how can you differentiate between oxalic acid, citric acid and tartaric acid with CaCl2 test? show the chemical reaction?

  • college -

    Look at the possible products:
    calcium citrate, calcium oxalate, and calcium tartrate.

    Are any of those insoluble in water? If so, a precipitate is formed. One of them is a problem in my making homemade wines.
