I. Introduction: The purpose of this lab is to learn about the technique of distillation by separating cyclohexane and tolune via this technique. Distillation is a method used to separate compounds based on the difference of their boiling points. Separation occurs when a liquid is heated to boiling and the vapors condense above the boiling liquid. These vapors are then removed via pipette into a container where they revert back to liquid form. In this lab we will complete two methods of distillation: simple and fractional. Simple and fractional distillation are relatively the same except for the setup. With a fractional distillation a medium is place above the liquid, in this lab we will use steel wool. Distillation can be completed on a micro and macro scale. For this lab we will complete microscale distillation. To analyze the efficiency of the distillation we will then complete gas chromatography on the collected samples. II. Procedure:
