Unformatted text preview: observed, recorded, and compared to each other. The unknown component’s m.p. and the acetanilide mixture’s m.p. were both about 109 degrees Celsius concluding from our results that the unknown component was, in fact, the acetanilide compound. Conclusion: Through recrystallization and comparing of melting points I answered the question: “What is the identity of the unknown component of Panacetin?” I discovered that the unknown in panacetin is acetanilide. In this lab I also learned how to use the melting point reader. Questions: 1. A) It takes about 94 ml of water to dissolve 1.15 grams of phenacetin. B) When the phenacetin and water mixture returns to room temperature I do not know how much will stay dissolved. C) If the phenacetin was pure, after vacuum filtration you should still have 1.15 grams. 2. Compound X is phenyl succinate because the mixture of the unknown with phenyl succinate has the same melting point as phenyl succinate....
