Extracting and purifying metals
Students consider how electrolytic cells are used commercially to extract and to purify metals (supports OCR Unit 12).
This resource contains:
- Industrial extraction and purification of metals. Students find out about the industrial extraction and purification of metals and describe the processes in terms of redox reactions - STUDY SHEET
- Refining copper. An investigation and report on factors that affect the efficiency of a simple laboratory process in which an object is copper plated - PRACTICAL SHEET
