Ring test is used to detect the presence of nitrate ions (NO3-) in chemistry qualitative analysis. The required chemical reactions involved for the Ring test' is:
i) NO3- + conc.H2SO4→ HSO4- + HNO3
ii) 2HNO3→ 2NO + H2O + 3O
iii) 6FeSO4 + 3O+ 3H2SO 4→ 3Fe2(SO4)3 + 3H2O
iv) 6FeSO4 + 2HNO3 + 3H2SO4 → 3Fe2(SO4)3 + 2NO +4H2O
v) FeSO4 + NO + 5H2O →
Brown ring is formed at the junction of the layers of the solution and sulphuric acid is obtained, which confirms the presence of nitrate ions in the solution.
