In order to synthesise our metal composites. we were able to do both Copper and Ruthenium metals. From this. we combined each metal composite with DMSO by refluxing the compound. The metal composites were analyzed through their thaw point and IR spectrometry to find whether the metal bonded to a Sulfur atom or an Oxygen atom of the DMSO. After analysing the IR spectrum. it was determined that S=O shifted to a lower wavenumber in CuCl2~2DMSO and that S=O shifted to a higher wavenumber in RuCl2~4DMSO.
Depending on the metal. it will bond to DMSO through its O or sulfur atom. This will do the frequence of the S=O bond soaking up to travel depending on which atom it bonds to. For O bond the frequence will be low due to the weakened interaction. As for S bond the frequence will be higher because the metal donates the negatrons as a back contribution to the pi orbital in DMSO. In the first experiment. I had to synthesized CuCl2~2DMSO to find which DMSO atom ; Sulfur or Oxygen. combined to Copper ( II ) Chloride. I was able to find it establish on happening the thaw point and detecting the Infrared Spectroscopy. Since Cu is a difficult metal. it will most likely bond to an O atom because they are both difficult. In the 2nd experiment. I besides synthesized RuCl2~4DMSO to find which DMSO atom ; Sulfur or Oxygen. combines to Ruthenium ( III ) to be reduced to Ruthenium ( II ) . I was able to find it based on happening the thaw point and detecting the Infrared Spectroscopy. Since Ru is a soft metal. it will most likely bond to Sulfur because they are both soft.
We prepared the sample by synthesising Copper Chloride with DMSO. 0. 160 gms of CuCl2~2DMSO was added to a 10 milliliter Erlenmeyer flask with a magnetic splash saloon. Than 1 milliliter of absolute ethyl alcohol was added to the flask utilizing a Pasteur pipet until Copper chloride dissolved. 250 µl of DMSO was added easy to the mixture utilizing a dispensing pipet and stirred for 10 proceedingss. A light green merchandise formed. The merchandise was than collected by suction filtration utilizing a Hirsch Funnel and washed with two parts of 500 µl of cold ethyl alcohol. IR spectrometry was used to analyse the merchandises and an emanation spectrum was obtained. Consequences and Discussion

When analysing the IR spectrum of Copper composite with DMSO. the outstanding extremum is presented at 920. 20 cm?1. This peak indicates that S=O bonded in DMSO. For DMSO. the frequence is around 1050 cm?1. From our spectra obtained for DMSO. the S=O extremum is at 1017. 65 cm?1. Since the bond appears at a lower frequence. this shows that the bond is weakened by the reaction. This signifies that when the Cu metal was combined with DMSO. it bonded with the O atom.
20B Preparation of RuCl2~2DMSO
For the 2nd experiment. we synthesized Ruthenium ( III ) Chloride with DMSO. 0. 102 gms of RuCl2~4DMSO was added to a 10 milliliter unit of ammunition underside flask that was equipped with a magnetic splash saloon. The unit of ammunition underside flask was attached to a H2O capacitor with a keck cartridge holder. The flask was placed in a sand bath in a hot home base. Than 1 milliliter of DMSO was added through the capacitor utilizing a graduated Pasteur pipet. While stirring the mixture the reaction refluxed for 5 proceedingss until the deep solution turned into an orange xanthous solution. I allowed the reaction to chill. Than transferred the solution to a 10 milliliter beaker utilizing a Pasteur pipet to boil away the dissolver cut downing it to a smaller sum. Added 2 milliliter of propanone bead wise chilling the mixture in an ice bath for 15 proceedingss ; xanthous crystals began to organize. The xanthous crystals were collected through suction filtration utilizing a Hirsch funnel and washed with one 500 µl of propanone. IR spectrometry was used to analyse the merchandise and an emanation spectrum was obtained.

When analysing the IR spectrum of Ruthenium composite with DMSO. the outstanding extremum is presented at 1105. 54 cm?1. This peak indicates that S=O bonded in DMSO. For DMSO. the frequence is around 1050 cm?1. From our spectra obtained for DMSO where the S=O extremum is at 1017. 65 cm?1. Since the bond appears at a higher frequence. this shows that the bond is strengthened by the reaction. This indicates that when the Cu metal was combined with DMSO. it bonded with the Sulfur atom. Uniting Ru with sulfur atom caused it to donate a pi negatron as a back contribution.
From both experiments. we were able to observe which Sulfur and Oxygen atom bonded to the metal. Copper metal was added to DMSO to bond with the O by weakening the S=O therefore take downing the IR spectrum. As for Ruthenium metal. it was added to DMSO to bond with the S compound. beef uping the S=O therefore increasing the IR spectrum. Based on the IR spectrums and runing points. my merchandise for both metal were pure.
