The tube on the left is the result of adding more iron(III) ion (via Fe(NO 3 ) 3 ). Add about 75 mL of distilled water. In order to make fake blood, for special effects or for Halloween, you will need the following: Potassium Thiocyanate (KSCN), Iron (III) Chloride (FeCL3), which is also known as ferric chloride or may substitute Iron Nitrate (Ferric Nitrate). 2. As you perform these absorbance measurements, consider how long it took to make a concentration measurement using freezing point depression. The local additions of either ferric ions or thiocyanate ions will each provide local color intensities by shifting the equilibrium. Potassium dichromate (VI) solution turns green as it reacts with the iron (II) ions, and there is no way you could possibly detect the color change when you have one drop of excess orange solution in a strongly colored green solution.
