I've searched the internet but I can't find out what color flame a Nickel (or even better NiSO_4) solution will produce when burned.

As well, does Aluminum (Al(SO_4)_3 ) have a flame color from the flame test?

Don't know sorry!Wih I could help!Can you help me though?

Thanks for nothing, now people who can answer my question are going to think its answered.

Under the right conditions nickel salts will give a greenish to green blue flame test but it is not a reliable test for Ni. Aluminum does not give a flame test in the visible region. Both Ni and Al, however, give good lines in the ultraviolet part of the spectrum; of course these could not be used for flame identification since the eye does not see into the UV region. I hope this helps.

I apologize for not being able to directly answer your question earlier. However, I would be happy to help you find the answers you are looking for.

To determine the color of the flame produced by a Nickel (Ni) solution or NiSO4, you can perform a flame test. A flame test involves heating a small sample of the compound in a flame and observing the color of the resulting flame. However, it is important to note that the flame test for nickel is not reliable and does not produce a distinctive color.

On the other hand, Aluminum (Al) or Al(SO4)3 does not produce a visible flame color during a flame test. The flame test is a qualitative analysis technique that relies on the characteristic colors emitted by certain elements when they are heated. While certain elements like lithium, sodium, potassium, calcium, and others produce distinct flame colors, Aluminum does not exhibit this behavior in the visible region of the spectrum.

However, it is worth mentioning that both Nickel and Aluminum can emit specific lines in the ultraviolet part of the spectrum. Unfortunately, these lines cannot be observed with the naked eye as human vision is limited to the visible region of light.

I apologize for any confusion caused earlier and I hope this explanation clarifies things for you. If you have any further questions or need assistance with anything else, please let me know!
