1Chris Tomlinson (Zach and Alan) Lab Report - Experiment 3 September 20 th , 2006 Abstract Separation and Analysis of the Components of a Mixture. Aside from pure substances, scientists often have to deal with mixtures, but these are hard to analyze unless broken up into its different components. Sublimation, filtration, and evaporation were used to break down the mixture into its various components. Testing each components physical and chemical properties helped to identify what elements or compounds were involved in the mixture. In the mixture, there was a volatile organic compound (camphor), SiO 2 , and a soluble alkali halide (Potassium Bromide - KBr). Testing their melting points, color, and other physical and chemical properties of each component allowed the mixture to be broken down, however, almost 30% of the original mixture was lost during the process of separation. Data Mass of the Unknown Mixture - 1.98 g (#26) Part A - Mass and Identification of the Volatile Organic Component
