Orgo Lab Experiment 3 Flashcards

separation of benzoic acid and naphthalene

All of these can help a polar solute dissolve in an aqueous solvent. It was titrated with 0. What am I going to need to use the solubilities for to do my flow scheme? Separation of Components of Mixtures: Most of the time the difference in physical properties of the components e. The tube was capped and shaken to thoroughly mix the two phases. The basic aqueous solution containing the carboxylate salt is acidified, causing the sodium carboxylate salt to convert back to the carboxylic acid, which is not water soluble.

If the organic acid, such as a carboxylic acid is sufficiently strong to self-ionization that can be suppressed by adding the acid. Using your understanding of these properties, separation of a mixture containing a carboxylic acid, an amine, and a neutral compound can be carried out via sequential acid and base extractions. Dry vial Unknown mixture that contains: -A carboxylic acid, a phenol, and a neutral compound Procedure: 1. To determine the percentage recovery and melting point of the recovered benzoic acid and p-dichlorobenzene. You should get a solid precipitate 12.

Experiment 4 :Separation of Benzoic acid from Naphthalene

Precipitate should form carboxylic acid and is isolated by vacuum filtration with a Hirsch funnel 9. The tube was then uncapped and clamped vertically to a ring stand. Conversely, the addition of a base to a mixture of an organic acid and base will. If the error were to happen the other way around and some of the dichloromethane layer was picked up with the aqueous extracts, which means less naphthalene would have resulted than expected. You want to choose a solvent that has the highest solubility of the extracted substance and the lowest solubility of the other substance s - this way you will get the most pure substance after extraction.

The flask was corked to prevent evaporation. The benzoic acid was extracted by adding 20mL of 10% aqueous sodium bicarbonate. Transfer organic layer to conical vial and add 50mg of anhydrous sodium sulfate drying agent 8. The ether solution was transferred to a labeled 50mL Erlenmeyer flask and 0. The dichloromethane layer will be sucked into the pipet and transferred to a reaction tube. Shaken with saturated sodium bicarbonate weak base 2.

This technique will be repeated by adding another 1. There are three different extraction techniques: liquid-liquid extraction, solid-liquid extraction and chemically active extraction. The carboxylic acid can be selectively isolated by dissolving the mixture in an organic solvent that is immiscible with water, and then extracting the solution with sodium hydroxide. Once the mixture was completely dissolved, 1. The extracted p-nitroaniline will then be isolated by adding aqueous sodium hydroxide which will turn the solution basic which will cause the p-nitroaniline to precipitate. The weight of the solid residue in the reaction tube will be determined and the tube will be stoppered. Whichever layer the salt dissolves into is the aqueous layer.

Any remaining benzoic acid in the organic layer was extracted with another 20mL of 10% aqueous sodium bicarbonate following the same procedure as detailed above. The purpose of this experiment is to separate a prepared mixture of benzoic acid, 4-nitroaniline, and naphthalene by the technique of extraction. The separatory funnel was inverted and shaken with frequent venting. The unknown sample may not be separated using melting points because both benzoic acid and 2-naphthol have a melting point of 123˚C. The benzoic acid will then be isolated using aqueous hydrochloric acid to turn the solution acidic which will make the benzoic acid precipitate.

Separation of Organic Compounds by Acid

separation of benzoic acid and naphthalene

Method used for separation of compounds comprising a sample mixture using two immiscible solvents First component mixture is dissolved in a suitable solvent and a second solvent that is immiscible with the first Next the components are mixed and the layers are separated less dense is upper Two layers are separated, transferred and the component in that solvent is isolated by solvent evaporation or crystallization 1. A video is provided below to demonstrate the use of for the preparation of one of the spectra. During the decanting of dichloromethane, some of the liquid may not have made it would of the tube. The color change was introduced by an indicator known as phenolphthalein, which caused the solution to go from colorless to pink, which marked the endpoint of this titration. In this process, where are the drying agents needed and how do I know how much I need? Organic acids and bases can be separated from each other and from neutral compounds by extraction using aqueous solutions of different pH values. The dichloromethane solution which was allowed to stand was decanted into a clean test tube. How are the solubilities related in this case? Repeat with two addition 1.

The pH paper was dipped into the ten drops of 0. Introduction Acid- base extraction is a process which purifying the acids and bases from mixtures based on their chemical properties. How are the solubilities related in this case? Suppose you were unsure which layer was which during your extraction. Most reactions of organic compounds require extraction at some stage of product purification. The acid will precipitate from the solution, as shown here. See the complete directions on the. The compounds will be extracted on the basis of the solubility properties of the acids, bases, and their salts.
