RSC Analyst Competition 2019
A team of Year 12 students; Sreenithi Balaji, Amrit Cassim and Yusuf Salim finished second in the Hull and East Riding round of the Royal Society
of Chemistry’s Analytical Division’s 2019 Analyst Competition held at the University of Hull’s Department of Chemistry on the evening of 20th March.
The theme was ‘Life on Mars?’ and the team’s scenario was ‘The year is 2037 and you are part of a team analysing the first soil sample to be brought back from Mars.’
The students determined the percentage of iron in the Martian soil by titration with aqueous potassium manganate (VII), first standardising the manganate against sodium ethanedioate, they analysed for phosphate using UV/visible spectrophotometry, and they performed thin layer chromatography to determine which of six possible amino acids were present.
