Fractional distillation lab discussion
Fractional distillation is the separation of a mixture into its component parts, or fractions, separating chemical compounds by their boiling point by heating them to a temperature at which one or more fractions of the compound will vaporize. It uses distillation to fractionate. Discussion and Conclusion This experiment was meant to demonstrate how a mixture of two different components with different vapor pressures can be separated by fractional distillation.
Objective: To perform a simple distillation and fractional distillation experiments of the known sample and based on the data obtained from both the experiments, plot distillation curves for both simple and fractional distillation experiments. Perform a fractional distillation on the unknown sample and.
