About Azo Dye Test: Identify primary aromatic amines Virtual Lab Simulation
Help us to reorganize our mislabelled box of amines! In this simulation, you will learn how to perform the Azo dye test to identify primary aromatic amines. We’ll start with our reagents, pick out everything you’ll need from a line up of familiar lab chemicals. Next let’s get stuck into some practical science! Perform the test by mixing, pipetting and cooling our chemicals then marvel at the colorful results. Finally, let’s check if you got all of that; reconstruct the steps of the experiment in our interactive card game to prove you’re an Azo Dye pro!
You’re our Primary Amine Detective
Discover the reagents you’ll need to perform the Azo Dye test for primary aromatic amines. Next you’ll master the steps of the test by performing them yourself. Finally you will learn what a positive test looks like and conclude the nature of the mystery substance.
