During the process a mixture is separated into several parts called fractions. Mixtures contain different substance with different boiling points, the differences in boiling points is the main reason fractional distillation is effective. The temperature at which a phase change occurs from liquid to vapor is the boiling point. Fractional distillation Column Fractional distillation column is a fractionating column used for separating a mixture into its various
Turel and Patil (1996)  have established a rapid and selective method for the extraction of molybdenum with malachite green into nitrobenzene. The influence of solvent extraction variables on molybdenum extraction such as effect of pH, time of equilibration, solvents, effect of various anions and cations have been studied. On the basis of substoichiometric extraction method the constituent ratio of the metal-organic complexes was found as 1:1. The slope ratio method was also in agreement with the
12. The TLC data obtained is provided in a table below. The TLC data was conducted solely in a 9:1 hexane/ethyl acetate solvent solution as opposed to the 1:1 and pure hexane solution as well. This was due to the lack of time, but as explained in number 7, a very polar solvent (1:1 solution) or non-polar solvent (pure hexane) is not ideal when obtaining
PChem Experiment No. 3 Cryoscopic determination of molecular weight 1. Aims To determine the apparent molecular weight of benzoic acid in cyclohexane by creating a binary system and finding the different freezing points of the solutions. 3. Experimental Procedure A dry, empty freezing-point tube and its cork were weighed together.
React ethanoic acid and 1-butanol under reflux with the presence of trace amount of concentrated sulfuric acid. In this step, the amount of 1-butanol and ethanoic acid used is the same so that a maximum 70% ester yield can be synthesised at the end of the experiment. After the reactants is accommodated in the reactant flask, the trace amount of concentrated sulfuric acid is added drops-by-drops into the reactant flask and the flask is swirled while adding the acid. Additional of concentrated sulfuric acid is to use as a catalyst to increase the rate of reaction by donating a proton to the oxygen atom in carboxylic acid to allow for the mechanism for esterification and thus, the satisfactory yield of ester can be achieved. Moreover, it acts as dehydrating agent, forcing the equilibrium to the products and lead to a greater yield of ester.
Capillary tubes were then obtained and filled with the solid product. The Mel-Temp was then used which determined the melting temperature of the precipitate and it also confirmed the isomerization of dimethyl maleate into dimethyl fumarate which are diastereomers. At the end of the isomerization reaction, cyclohexane was used to get rid of the residual bromine before disposing of the
Michael Bent Mohamed Mire CHEM 220-12 4/13/2016 Methyl Benzoate Labs The first part of the lab regarded an esterification leading to the formation of Methyl Benzoate (C8H8O2). The purpose of this lab was to convert benzoic acid to methyl benzoate by means of utilizing a reflux acid catalyzed reaction with methanol; purity of the final product was assessed by means of both proton and carbon NMR. The extent to which a reaction’s products are reverted back into the original reactants is denoted by the equilibrium constant. The esterification reaction that's taking place in this lab has a low equilibrium constant (about 2.3) which means that a very low yield of the methyl benzoate product would be generated. There are a couple of mechanisms that
A line called as solvent front is created across the paper .As the solvent level increased; the solvent dissolved the ink into its components. The rate of dissolving in the solvent differs because of the different markers which contains different components. The farther the ink travels upwards, the more it is attracted to the
The volume, temperature and pressure exerted by a particular gas are highly dependent on one another. This is explained by several Gas Laws. Boyle’s Law states that when the temperature is kept constant, pressure of gas is inversely proportional to the volume. Relating this principle to molar volume, the higher the pressure, the smaller the volume the gas particles occupies. When the volume of the container enclosing the gas is reduced, there are more gas particles per unit volume.
The IR analysis indicated a distinctive peak at 1778.43 representing ketone, and another peak at 1226.73 representing ether. The peak at 1400-1600 was indicative of either a ring structure or an alkene group. The reactants were dissolved in xylene since they have more solubility compared to the product which undergoes crystallization. Thereafter the mixture was refluxed to maintain constancy in temperature and ensure mixing. Since xylene has a high boiling point of 140 °C, the reaction proceeded speedily.
