Purpose Of The Fractional Distillation Of Alcohols Lab

Satisfactory Essays
The purpose of the fractional distillation of alcohols lab was to learn a new technique to separate mixtures of our unknown compound into pure components using the specific vapor pressures of pure liquids. Before the fractional distillation lab was performed, a simple distillation lab was run. In the simple distillation setup, a boiling flask attached to an adapter holding a temperature probe. The adapter connected to a condenser into which water passed through. The condenser leads to a flask for the purified liquid. Fractional distillation was a better choice for this lab over simple distillation because
