Question #18855
How would I reduce Au(OH)3 to Au? Please keep in mind I would want to melt the Au into a shiny nugget when I am finished.
Thank you!
Expert's answer
All gold compounds are easily decomposed by heating with the release of metallic gold. Many organic compounds (aldehydes, some alcohols, glucose), and the metal ions in the lowest oxidation (Sn2+, Fe2+, etc.) is reduced to the metallic gold from solutions of its salts.
