Flame Test

A flame test is a procedure used to test qualitatively for the presence of certain metals in chemical compounds.  When the compound to be studied is excited by heating it in a flame, the metal ions will begin to emit light.   Based on the emission spectrum of the element, the compound will turn the flame a characteristic color.  This technique of using certain chemical compounds to color flames is widely used in pyrotechnics to produce the range of colors seen in a firework display.

To perform a flame test, prepare a solution of the compound to be tested by dissolving it in deionized water.  Next, clean an inert  wire loop by submerging it in a dilute Hydrochloric acid solution then rinsing with deionized water.  Repeat this process until no distinct color is seen after placing the loop into a flame.  When the wire loop is clean, dip it into the solution to be tested and place the loop into the hottest part of a non-luminous flame.  Observe and record the color change to the flame.

Certain metal ions will turn the flame very distinctive colors, these colors intern can help identify the presence of a particular metal in a compound.  However, some colors are produced by several different metals, making it hard to determine the exact ion or concentration of the ion in the compound.  Some colors are very weak and are easily overpowered by stronger colors.  For instance, the presence of a Potassium Ion in a compound will color a flame violet / lilac, on the other hand, even trace amounts of Sodium ions in a compound produce a very strong yellow flame, often times making the Potassium ion very difficult to detect.  To counteract the effects of any Sodium impurities, one can view the flame through a piece of Cobalt blue glass .  The Cobalt glass absorbs the yellow light given off by Sodium while letting most other wavelengths of light pass through.  More recently, didymium  glass has been substituted for Cobalt glass due to its superior ability to block undesirable light.
