A B C A B C Questions 1. The first TLC plate they developed might have had some potential erros with Rf values due to the location of solvent front and its accuracy in determining the result, or how well the middle of the spot was defined, and how much compound was spotted. By cospotting them on same TLC place, they can create same environmental conditions for the experiment, so that the result can be more accurate. 2. No. It is possible that ether may extract things hexane can’t. These solvents evaporate off the place already, because they extract different compounds from the same spice. 3. Lower Rf value resulted in 100% hexane since polar compound more attracted to polar stationary phase. 90% hexane: 10%ethyl acetate 100% hexane 4. TLC absorbent is not chiral, so TLC cannot discern enantiomers. You would need to use a chiral silica derivative when analyzing this sample. 5. These two isomeric mixtures are not separated by TLC because they do not differ greatly in their polarity.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
