• As described in the lab manual (CHM 1321 Organic Chemistry Laboratory Manual, Dr. Tony Durst et. al., Sept. 2013, Exp.2, pg. 20-27.)
• Replace the receiving flask with a graduated cylinder for better measurement of the distillate.
• Replace thermometer with a temperature probe for more accurate temperature readings.
• Use aluminum foil to insulate the fractionating column.
• The process of warming the liquid was slow and tedious. The warming took an average of 30 minutes.
• When there was about 2-5 mL of mixture left in the flask, the vapour was no longer able to make it to the condenser and it would fall back into the flask. The distillations were stopped after this point as minimal liquid was being collected in the …show more content…
This is due to the boiling points of the two compounds are too close for an effective simple distillation. A simple distillation only works when the boiling points of the two compounds are separated by at least 50 °C (CITATION). Meanwhile, the boiling points of the compounds of the mixtures are 82.3 °C for 2-pronanol and 117 °C for 1-butanol (National Center for Biotechnology Information).
As well, while fractional distillation is more difficult due to the added fractionating column and insulation, it allows for better separation and condensation of the individual compounds. This ensures that only the compound with the lower boiling point is completely condensed before the compound with the higher boiling point begins to condense.
Therefore, this means that the 2-propanol has condensed completely before 1-butanol had begun to, allowing the individual boiling points to be clearly analysed. As well the product can be pure 2-propanol if the temperature is decreased before the 1-butanol begins to condense. Compared to the simple distillation, it would be difficult to identify when the two compounds would be separated from the ever-increasing temperature. In addition, if one was intending to separate compounds with close boiling points, fractional distillation would better the better distillation

The data table provided below obtained melting point data for crude product, pure product, and mixture of the pure and 4-tert-butylbenzyl. 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
Experiment 1: Materials: • Alka-Seltzer tablets • Empty and clean water or soda bottles (12 oz to 24 oz) • Balloons • Water • Clock • Stove top Procedure: 1. Pour a sufficient amount of water (about 16 oz) into a small pot and place on the stove at high heat. 2. Watch the clock and after 30 seconds take the water off the heat.
For this I needed to first obtain deionized water. I cleaned my large graduated cylinder and got 20 + or - 2 mL of deionized water. I then added this water to the beaker that contained the mixture I created from the last step of the experiment. I also gathered 2 boiling stones and added them to the mixture of the last step. I placed the beaker on a hot plate and heated it up to 130 degrees Celsius.
In acidic aqueous solution, a buffer is formed by the dissociation of the acid: HA ⇄ H+ + A- Hence, when acid is added, the excess H+ reacts with the A- to form more HA, lowering the pH and minimising the effect of the addition of acid. When alkali is added, the OH- reacts with the dissociated H+ to form water, which reduces the effect of the alkali by restoring the pH to normal levels. Alka Seltzer acts as a buffer because the citrate ions in solution (C6H5O73-) are able to react with H+ when acid is added, to form citric acid, C6H8O7. This neutralises the acid, increasing the pH. The excess HCO3- ions also react with H+ to form CO2 and water, hence lowering the pH and reducing the acidity of the solution. The HCO3- ions also act as a buffer when alkali is added, because they react with OH- to create water and CO32- ions, increasing the pH and reducing the effect of the addiction of alkali.
1. 150 ml of boiled water was poured into each of the three beakers labeled A, B, C. 2. Five tea bags were soaked for the time given by the manufacturer (two minutes) , in beaker A (Control). The teabags were immediately removed after the time elapsed. 3.
Dalia El-Desoky Organic Chemistry II Lab 05 8 February 2017 Dehydration of 2-methylcyclohexanol Introduction: Dehydration is a common reaction in Organic Chemistry used to produce carbon-carbon double bonds. The dehydration mechanism involves the removal of water from an alcohol to form an alkene. In this experiment, 2-methylcyclohexanol will undergo acid catalyzed dehydration in heat to form three products: 1-methylcyclohexene, 3-methylcyclohexene, and methylenecyclohexane . The reaction is carried out in a Hickman still filled with Drierite, a drying agent composed of CaSO4 which absorbs water.
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
➢ Select the flask, and then choose 50 mL of crude oil from the Chemicals menu. Then, by selecting the flask and choose “Chemical Properties” option from dropdown. NOTE: Record the grams of gasoline, kerosene, and lubricating oils that are present in the 50 mL of crude oil. ➢ Select the flask, and choose Heating Mantel option afterward select Max Heat and make sure you record the temperature when you see crude oil begins to boil. ➢ When the crude oil begins to boil, Make sure you turn the temperature down to 60% by decreasing the heating metal two times.
The thermal distillation process uses heat to evaporate water and then later liquefy again. When there is leftover heat or enough electricity available, as is often the case with factories and power plants, thermal distillation is a well-organized and workable
It is faster due to the filter funnels surface area. Results/Observations Experimental data resulted as expected because it was found that on experiment one, Benzoic Acid could recrystallize with a better recovery percentage than the solvent pair in experiment two. The mass recovered in experiment one was 0.048g while experiment two had a mass recovery of 0.045g. Solvent(s) Used Mass of “Crude” (g) Mass of Recovered (g) Amount of Solvent Used (mL) Percent Recovered (%) Experiment One Water (H2O) .051
14 vials were used for cotaining samples. When the distillation was proceeding at a moderate speed at about the wanted temperature, the receiver was replaced with a vial as the condensed vapour sample (V) and the thermometer was read. Half of the vial was filled with the sample. The stopper of the distillation flask was removed and using a dropper to collect the liquid.
The fractions in the fractional distillation such as N-hexane, isohexane, methyl cyclopentane have normal boiling point close to cyclohexane which makes the recovery of cyclohexane uneconomic and difficult. 2. Quantity of cyclohexane recovered is not enough to meet the current demand since the cyclohexane content of naphtha is about 5%- 15% by weight .3 Selection of Pathway to Cyclohexane (2) Hydrogenation of Benzene: C6H6 +3H2 →
Joshua Miller 12/18/17 Fermentation Lab report Introduction The term fermentation refers to the chemical breakdown of a substance by bacteria, yeasts, or other microorganisms, typically involving effervescence and the giving off of heat (wikipedia). Sugars are converted to ethyl alcohol when fermentation happens. In this experiment we determined if yeast cells undergo fermentation when placed in a closed flask with no oxygen. Glucose and yeast are mixed together in a closed flask and allowed to incubate for about one hour.
