1. There was a correlation between the density’s and the results from this lab. In the first mixture dichloromethane and water were added to a test tube. The top layer was water while the bottom layer was the organic layer. The density of water is less than that of dichloromethane therefore water would go to the top and dichloromethane would be the bottom layer since it has a higher density. On the other hand the second test tube consisted of ether and water because ether is less dense than water it is the top layer while water is the bottom layer. 2. The aqueous layer was extracted multiple times with dichloromethane, this was used to isolate the pure product. After a reaction occurs there were some by products mixed with the pure product.
