Extraction-Spectrophotometric Studies on the Complex Formation of Iron(III) with 4-(2-Thiazolylazo)Resorcinol and Tetrazolium Salts
Keywords:Iron-TAR chelate, Solvent extraction, Ion-association, Fe(III) reduction, Linear relationship
Four liquid-liquid extraction-chromogenic systems containing Fe(III), 4-(2-thiazolylazo)resorcinol (TAR), tetrazolium salt (TZS), water and chloroform were studied. 2,3,5-Triphenyl-2H-tetrazolium chloride (TTC), 3-(4,5-dimethyl-2-thiazol)-2,5-diphenyl-2H-tetrazolium bromide (MTT), 3-(2-naphtyl)-2,5-diphenyl-2H-tetrazolium chloride (TV), and 2-(4-iodophenyl)-3-(4-nitrophenyl)-5-phenyl-2H-tetrazolium chloride (INT) were the examined TZSs. Optimization experiments for iron extraction were performed and the following parameters were found for each system: pH(opt), CTAR(opt), CTZS(opt), shaking time (opt), and l(opt). Under the optimum conditions, the molar ratio of the reacting Fe(III), TAR and TZS is 1:2:2 and the general formula of the extracted species is (TZ+)2[FeII(TAR2â€“)2]. Some equilibrium constants (constants of association, constants of distribution, and constants of extraction) and analytical characteristics (molar absorptivities, Sandellâ€™s sensitivities, Beerâ€™s law limits, etc.) were calculated. Linear relationships involving the molecular mass of TZ+ were discussed.
