I. Introduction A. Objective The purpose of this experiment is to identify an unknown proprietary drug using thin-layer chromatography. The unknown’s behavior in thin-layer chromatography will be compared with that of its possible component analgesics. The possible unknowns and their analgesic ingredients . . .
I. Introduction A. Objective The purpose of this experiment is to compare the efficiency of simple distillation versus fractional distillation for separation of a mixture of toluene and cyclohexane. The mixture will first be separated using fractional distillation. A fractional distillation apparatus will . . .
I. Introduction A. Objective The purpose of this experiment is to isolate cholesterol from gallstones via the techniques of extraction and recrystallization. The gallstones will first be dissolved in 2-butanone heated in a hot sand bath. The solution will then be transferred to a micro column using a pipet . . .
I. Introduction A. Objective The purpose of this experiment is to separate a prepared mixture of benzoic acid, 4-nitroaniline, and naphthalene by the technique of extraction. The compounds will be extracted on the basis of the solubility properties of the acids, bases, and their salts. The given unknown . . .
I. Introduction A. Objective The purpose of first part of this experiment is to first recrystallize impure acetanilide that is contaminated with dye methylene blue. Decolorizing charcoal will be used to purify the sample. The starting and ending weights of the acetanilide will be recorded to determine . . .
