“Investigating Solubility and Acid-Base Reactions” Discussion Questions 1) A) Water and acetone cannot be used for extraction; the two are soluble in one another. Water and ethanol cannot be used for extraction; the two are soluble when mixed vigorously. Water and diethyl ether is a pair of solvents than can be used for extraction. Diethyl ether is less dense that water, so it forms a layer on top of the water which stays very separated. Water and dichloromethane is a pair of solvents that can be used for extraction. Dichloromethane has a liquid density greater than water and will form a layer below the layer of H 2 O. Water and ethyl acetate can be used for extraction. The liquid densities of water and ethyl acetate are very close, but ethyl acetate is slightly less dense and will form a layer on top of the water. Because of the close density, ethyl acetate can bead up and become dispersed in the water if disturbed or stirred.
