(A) Sulphuric acid


Manufacture of sulphuric acid Contact process produces more than 90% of the world sulphuric acid. Raw materials used for the manufacture of sulphuric acid :(i) sulphur (ii) air (iii) water. Contact process consists of 3 stages: ~ Production of sulphur dioxide ~ Conversion of sulphur dioxide is sulphur trioxide. ~ Production of sulphuric acid Stage I: Production of sulphur dioxide (a)Sulphur is burnt in air to produce sulphur dioxide. S(s) + O2(g) SO2(g) (b)Burning of metal sulphides such as zinc sulphide and lead sulphide also produces sulphur dioxide. 2ZnS(s) + 3O2(g) 2SO2(g) + 2ZnO(s) 2PbS(s) + 3O2(g) 2SO2(g) + 2PbO(s) (c)The sulphur dioxide is then mixed with excess air.The mixture is dried and purified to remove impurities such as arsenic compounds. (d)Arsenic compounds found in sulphur will poison the catalyst in the converter, making the catalyst ineffective. Stage II: Conversion of sulphur dioxide to sulphur trioxide (a)The mixture of sulphur dioxide and excess oxygen is passed through a converter.The sulphur dioxide is oxidised to sulphur trioxide. 2SO2(g) + O2(g) 2SO3(g)

(b)Optimum conditions used are as follows. (i) Temperature : 450C (ii) Pressure : 1 atmosphere 4

(iii) Catalyst : Vanadium(V) oxide,V2O5 (c)About 97% conversion occurs under these optimum conditions.

Stage III : Production of sulphuric acid (a) The sulphur trioxide is first dissolved in concentrated sulphuric acid to form a product called oleum, H2S2O7 SO3(g) + H2SO4(aq) H2S2O7(l) (b) Sulphur trioxide is not dissolved in water to form sulphuric acid.This is because reaction between sulphur trioxide and water is very vigorous and produces a large amount of heat.The reaction causes the production of a large cloud of sulphuric acid mist.The mist is corrosive, pollutes the air and is difficult to condense. (c) The oleum is then diluted with water to produce concentrated sulphuric acid of about 98%. H2S2O7(l) + H2O(l) 2H2SO4(aq)

Uses of sulphuric acid

Sulphuric acid is used as:

to manufacture fertilisers

to manufacture paint pigment

to manufacture detergents

to manufacture synthetic fibre

to clean metals

to manufacture plastics

as an electrolyte in car batteries

to manufacture other chemicals

There are many fertilizers that can be made of sulphuric acid. Some of them are: a) Calcium hydrogen phosphate (superphosphate) 2 H2SO4(aq) + Ca3(PO4) 2(s) Ca(H2 PO4) 2 (aq)+ 2CaSO4 (s) sulphuric acid + tricalcium phosphate calcium hydrogen phosphate

b) Ammonium sulphate H2SO4(aq) +2NH3(aq) (NH4) 2SO4(aq) sulphuric acid + aqueous ammonia ammonium sulphate c) Potassium sulphate H2SO4(aq) +2KOH (aq) K2SO4(aq) + 2H2O(l) sulphuric acid + potassium hydroxide solution Potassium sulphate 10

1) To manufacture paint pigments The white pigment in paint is usually barium sulphate, BaSO4. The neutralization of sulphuric acid and barium hydroxide produces barium sulphate. H2SO4(aq) + Ba(OH)2 (aq) BaSO4(s) + 2H2O(l) sulphuric acid + barium hydroxide solution Barium sulphate + water 2) To manufacture detergents Sulphuric acid reacts with by-products of oil refining to form sulphonic acid. Neutralising the sulphonic acid with an alkali produces detergents. 3) To manufacture synthetic fibres Synthetic fibres are polymers ( long chain molecules). Rayon is an example of a synthetic fibre that is produced by the reaction of sulphuric acid eith cellulose threads soaked in alkaline solution. 4) Cleaning metals Before electroplating,sulphuric acid is used for cleaning metals to remove the surface oxides. 5) Other chemicals Sulphuric acid is used as other chemicals like pharmaceuticals,insectides, tartaric acid and explosive. 6) The uses of sulphuric acid in school laboratories are: a. b. c. d. e. As a strong acid As a drying or dehydrating agent As an oxidizing agent As a sulphonating agent As a catalyst

Figure 2 : Uses of sulphuric acid

Sulphur dioxide and environmental pollution 1) Sulphur dioxide is released through:(a) Burning of sulphur during Contact process (b) Extraction of some metals from their sulphides ores (c) Burning of coals or fuels with high sulphur content 2) Acid rain occurs when there is sulphurous acid,sulphuric acid and nitric acid in the rain. These strong acids will cause the pH of rain to fall between 2.4 and 5.0

3) Sulphur dioxide accounts for most of the acid rain problems. (a) When sulphur dioxide dissolves in rainwater,sulphurous acid is formed 13

SO2(g) + H2O (l) H2SO3(aq) (b) Sulphur dioxide can react with oxygen and water to form sulphuric acid 2SO2(g) + O2(g) + 2H2O(l) 2H2SO4(aq) Ways to control and reduce the effects of acid rain: Use low-sulphur fuels Add calcium oxide(lime), CaO; calcium hydroxide,Ca(OH)2 and powdered llimestone CaCO3 into the acidic lake or river to neutralize the acids present CaO(s) + 2H (aq) Ca (aq) +H2O(l) Ca(OH)2(s) + 2H (aq) Ca (aq) + 2H2O(l) CaCO3(s) + 2H (aq) Ca (aq) + CO2(g) + H2O(l)

14

Environmental problems cause by acid rain

corrodes buildings,monuments and statues calcium carbonate in the marble reacts with H2SO4 from the rain to form calcium sulphate. CaCO3(s) + H2SO4(aq) CaSO4(s) + CO2(g) + H2O(l)

corrodes metallic structure The iron from the steel bridges reacts with sulphuric acid to form iron(II) sulphate. Fe(s) + H2SO4(aq) FeSO4(aq) + H2(g)

increase the acidity of water Acid rain disturbs the ecosystem Fish and other aquatic organisms which cannot live in acidic water may die.

increase the acidity of the soil plants cannot grow well in acidic soil reaction of sulphuric acid with aluminium compounds in the soil forms aluminium sulphate which can damage the roots of trees.

leaches minerals and nutrients in the soil. acid react with minerals in the soil to form double salts. dissolved salts carried by the rainwater to river. plants lack of essential nutrients for growth.

(B) Ammonia and its salts


Manufacture of ammonia in industry Ammonia is manufactured in industries through Haber process. Raw materials for the Haber process are (i)hydrogen (ii)nitrogen Nitrogen gas is obtained from the fractional distillation of liquid air. Hydrogen gas is obtained by: (i)Reaction between methane from natural gas and steam CH4(g) + 2H2O(l) 4H2(g) + CO2(g) (ii)The reaction between heated coke and steam C(s) + H2O(l) H2(g) + CO(g)

16

The manufacture of ammonia,NH3 through the Haber Process.

Nitrogen and hydrogen are mixed according to the ratio 1 mole N2 : 3 moles H2. The mixture is compressed to 200 atm and heated to a temperature of about 450C The mixture is then passed through layers of heated iron catalyst in a reactor.Ammonia is produced. N2(g) + 3H2(g) 2NH3(g) The reaction is reversible and the production of ammonia gives out heat.The high pressure and iron catalyst speed up the rate of reaction. The ammonia gas produced is liquefied ans separated to get a better yield. The unreacted nitrogen and hydrogen are recycled and passed back into the reactor together with the new source of nitrogen and hydrogen.About 98% of nitrogen and hydrogen are converted into ammonia. Ammonium fertilisers Plants need nutrients like nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium and calcium to grow. Nitrogen-make proteins in stalks and leaves Nitrogen is absorbed by plants in the form of soluble nitrate ions, NO3 Ammonium fertilisers contain ammonium ions.In the soil, the ammonium ions are converted to nitrate ions by bacteria Examples of ammonium fertilisers: (a) (b) (c) (d) Ammonium nitrate, NH4NO3 Ammonium sulphate, (NH4)2SO4 Ammonium phosphate, (NH4)2HPO4 Urea,CO(NH2)2

Fertilisers that contain a high percentage of nitrogen are more effective. 17

Ammonium fertilisers can be prepared by reactions between ammonia solution and acids.

Physical properties of ammonia

pungent smell

very soluble in water

less dense than air

Chemical reaction of ammonia: (a) Reacting as a base Ammonia ionises partially in water and therefore is a weak base. NH3(g) + H2O(l) NH4 (aq) + OH (aq)

Ammonia undergoes neutralisation with acids to form ammonium salts. Ammonia + acid ammonium salt (b) Reacting with aqueous metal ions Ammonia solution can precipitate some metal hydroxides from their aqueous salt solutions.The metal ions combine with the hydroxide ions from aqueous ammonia to produce insoluble metal hydroxides : Mn (aq) + nOH (aq) M(OH)n(s)

19

Uses of ammonia To make fertilisers - provide plants the nitrogen they need to grow - these fertilisers are ammonium salts obtained from the neutralization of ammonia with different acids. Examples: (a) Ammonium phosphate - reaction of ammonia with phosphoric acid produces ammonium phosphates NH3(aq) + H3PO(aq) NH4H2PO4(aq) 2 NH3(aq) + H3PO(aq) (NH4)2HPO4(aq) - good fertilisers because they provide two important nutrients,phosphorus and nitrogen. (b) Ammonium nitrate - ammonia is neutralised by nitric acid,ammonium nitrate is formed NH3(aq) + HNO3(aq) NH4NO3(aq) (c) Ammonium sulphate - ammonia is neutralised by sulphuric acid 2NH3(aq) + H2SO4(aq) (NH4)2SO4(aq) (d) Urea - At a temperature of 200C and a high pressure of 200 atm, ammonia reacts with carbon dioxide to produce urea. 2NH3(g) + CO2(g) CO(NH2)2(s) + H2O(l) used as a raw material for the manufacture of nitric acid in the Ostwad process. Liquid ammonia used as cooling agent used as an alkali to prevent the coagulation of latex Ammonia salts is used as smelling salts to revive people who have fainted

Preparation of ammonia The chief commercial method of producing ammonia is by the Haber-Bosch process, which involves the direct reaction of elemental hydrogen and elemental nitrogen.N2 + 3H2 2NH3 This reaction requires the use of a catalyst, high pressure (1001,000 atmospheres), and elevated temperature (400550 C [7501020 F]). Actually, the equilibrium between the elements and ammonia favours the formation of ammonia at low temperature, but high temperature is required to achieve a satisfactory rate of ammonia formation. Several different catalysts can be utilized. Normally the catalyst is iron containing iron oxide. However, both magnesium oxide on aluminum oxide that has been activated by alkali metal oxides and 20

ruthenium on carbon have been employed as catalysts. In the laboratory, ammonia is best synthesized by the hydrolysis of a metal nitride.Mg3N2 + 6H2O 2NH3 + 3Mg(OH)2

(C) Alloys
Arrangement of atoms in metals Pure metals

21

High density

Ductile

Physical properties of pure metals

High melting & boiling points

Malleable

Good conductors of heat and electricity

Pure metal is made up of one type of atoms,thus all atoms are of the same size. In solid state ,the atoms in a pure metal are orderly arranged and closely packed together.Thus,pure metals have high densities.

Although the forces of attraction between the metal atoms are strong,they are not rigid.Therefore when a force is applied,the layers of atoms can slide over one another.Thus metals are ductile or can be stretched. 22

Force

Layers of atoms slide over one another Figure 3 : Metals are ductile The arrangement of atoms in pure metals are not perfect.There are some empty spaces in between the atoms.When a metal is knocked or pressed,groups of atoms may slide and then settle into new position.So,metals are malleable.

Force

Figure 4 : Metals are malleable Pure metals are weak and soft due to their ductility and malleability

What are alloys? An alloy is a mixture of two or more elements with a certain fixed composition in which the major component is a metal. Pure metals are normally soft and easily oxidised.This is the reason why monuments or statues are made of bronze(an alloy) and not copper(a pure metal). Alloy are stronger,harder,resistant to corrosion,have a better finish and lustrous.

23

Why make alloys? The aim of making alloy is: (a) to increase the strength and hardness of a pure metal (b) to increase the resistance to corrosion of a pure metal (c) to improve the appearance of a pure metal

(D) Synthetic Polymer


What are polymers? Polymers are large long-chain molecules formed by joining together many identical repeating sub-units called monomers. Polymerisation is a process by which the monomers are joined together into chain-like molecule called polymer.

Formation of polymer Polymers can be divided into 2 types.

Polymers

Natural Polymers Exist in living things in nature Ex:Protein,cellulose,wool,silk, starch,natural rubber & DNA

Synthetic Polymers They are man-made in laboratory through chemical processes. Ex: Plastics, nylon

Cellulose Paper, textiles, pharmaceuticals, and explosives Starch To stiffen cloth (as in laundering), used in cooking to thicken foods, manufactured of adhesives, paper, textiles and as a mold in the manufacture of sweets. Protein Essential in the diet of animals for the growth and repair of tissue, Fat Maintaining healthy skin and hair, insulating body organs against shock, promoting healthy cell function and serve as energy stores for the body

Synthetic Polymer Synthetic polymers are prepared through 2 types of polymerisation processes: (a)Addition polymerisation (b)Condensation polymerisation Addition polymerisation - involves monomers with double bonds between the carbon atoms. - During addition polymerisation, the double bonds between pairs of carbon atoms break and the carbon atoms pf adjacent ethene molecules join together to form a molecule of poly or polythene. Condensation polymerisation - involves the joining up of monomers with the formation of other smaller and simple 26

molecules.

Plastics Plastics are the largest group of synthethic polymers with the following properties: (a)Can be easily moulded (b)Low density (c)Strong (d)Inert to chemicals (e)Insulator of heat and electricity (f)Can be coloured

3 main differences between glass and ceramic: Glass can be heated until molten repeatedly but not ceramics Glass is usually transparent whereas ceramics are not Glass has a lower melting point than ceramics.

`(F) Composite materials


A composite material is a structural material that is formed by combining two or more different materials such as metals,alloys,glass,ceramics and polymers. Some common composite materials are: a. Reinforced concrete b. Superconductor c. Fibre optic d. Fibre glass 34

e.

Photochromic glass

Reinforced concrete Reinforced concrete is formed when concrete is reinforced with steel wire netting or steel rods. Essential for the construction of large structures like high-rise buildings,bridges and oil platforms. Has a greater strength than ordinary concrete and has higher resistance to impact. Superconductors capable of conducting electricity without any electrical resistance when they are cooled to an extremely low temperature. most of them are alloys of metal compounds or ceramics of metal oxides Superconductors also used in : (a) magnetic energy-storage system (b) magnetically levitated train (c) generators (d) transformers (e) computer parts (f) very sensitive devices for measuring magnetic fields, voltage or current. Fibre Optic consists of a bundle of glass or plastic threads that are surrounded by a glass cladding. used to replace copper wire in long distance telephones lines,in mobile phones,video cameras and to link computers within local area networks. used in instruments for examining internal parts of the body or inspecting the interior of manufactured structural products.

Fibre glass produced when glass fibres are embedded in plastic resins to produce glass fibre reinforced plastics. 35

has high tensile strength,can be easily coloured,moulded and shaped,inert to chemicals and is low in density. Photochromic glass changes from transparent to coloured when it is exposed to ultraviolet light, and reverts to transparency when the light is dimmed or blocked. can be produced by embedding photochromic substances like fine silver chloride. photochromic glass helps to: (a) protect our eyes from harmful ultraviolet rays and glare from the sun (b) control the amount of light that passes through it automatically (c) reduce refraction of light
