Distillation Vs Toluene

Satisfactory Essays
Fractional distillation was the better technique of separating toluene and cyclohexane than simple distillation because it had a greater percent toluene difference for fractions 2 and 4. Fraction 2 composed of mostly cyclohexane with a toluene percentage closer to 0% compared to simple distillation, while fraction 4 composed of mostly toluene with 100% toluene. The 100% toluene in fraction 4 indicated that the compound was purer in fractional distillation than in simple distillation, which had less percent
