Cyclohexane And Toluene Lab Report

257 Words2 Pages
The goal of this experiment is to separate a liquid mixture of cyclohexane and toluene by both simple and fractional distillation. The effectiveness of each procedure is shown by the comparisons that can be made from the resulting graphed data. This graphed data includes the temperatures at which the designated amount of liquid was collected and the refractive indexes of each of these collections. Distillation is the most common technique for purifying organic liquids, and this type of purification relies heavily on the boiling points of each separate liquid in the mixture. In simple distillation, the heating setup consists of a distillation flask, which holds the liquid mixture, a distillation head, and a west condenser. The west condenser
