The Extraction of Iron Chemistry LibreTexts

Former Head of Chemistry and Head of Science at Truro School in Cornwall Contributors and Attributions This page looks at the use of the Blast Furnace in the extraction of iron from iron ore and the conversion of the raw iron from the furnace into various kinds of steel.

Extraction of Iron from its ores Iron dressing Reduction

Extraction of iron or its metallurgy is the process of obtaining this metal in a form where it can be put to practical use and this process of extraction consists of three stages Ore dressing Reduction of ores and Iron production. Extraction of Iron from its ores.

Extraction of Iron (examples answers activities

iron oxide + carbon monoxide iron + carbon dioxide Fe 2 O 3 + 3CO 2Fe + 3CO 2 Iron from the blast furnace is an alloy of about 96 per cent iron with carbon and some other impurities. It is hard but too brittle for most uses. So most iron from the blast furnace is converted into steel by removing some of the carbon. Show Video

Extraction of Iron QS Study

ore of iron is called haematite. It is a mineral composed of iron (III) oxide Fe 2 O 3. About 4.12% (or 4.15%) of earths crust is Iron. Mainly Fe is extracted from oxide ore. Commercially Fe is extracted from Haematite by three steps Condensation. Roasting Smelting.

Extraction of Iron Class 12 General Principles and

Fe3O4 + 4CO > 3Fe + 4 CO2. Fe2O3 + CO > 2FeO + CO2. This region of the furnace is called reduction zone. The spongy iron produced in the reduction zone moves down slowly and melts in the fusion zone. At the lower hotter part the main reaction is FeO + C > Fe + CO.

Extraction of Iron Metallurgy Blast Furnace and Reactions

It is in the blast furnace that extraction of iron occurs. The extraction of iron from its ore is a long and subdued process that helps in separating the useful components from the waste materials such as slag. What happens in the Blast Furnace? The purpose of a Blast Furnace is to reduce the concentrated ore chemically to its liquid metal state.

Chemistry of Iron Chemistry LibreTexts

The reaction between persulfate ions (peroxodisulfate ions) S 2 O 8 2 and iodide ions in solution can be catalyzed using either iron(II) or iron(III) ions. The overall equation for the reaction is \[ S 2O 8^{2} + 2I^ \rightarrow 2SO 4^{2}+ I 2 \label{2}\] For the sake of argument we'll take the catalyst to be iron(II) ions.
