Using a flowchart, clearly describe a method to separate the following mixtures (chromatography not allowed). (12 pts) Note. A separation is not a purification. NH 2 OH A) Add aqueous HCl and an organic solvent (Et 2 O or ethyl acetate) organic phase + NH 3 R Cl aqueous phase Add aqueous NaOH and an organic solvent NH 2 R organic phase + NaCl aqueous phase NH 2 Dry; evaporate the solvent Dry; evaporate the solvent OH OH 2 B) OH OH + + NaCl O Add aqueous NaHCO 3 (weak base) in water organic phase aqueous phase Phenol PhCO 2 Na Dry; evaporate solvent + NaCl aqueous phase Add dilute aqueous HCl and an organic solvent organic phase PhCO 2 H CO 2 H Dry; evaporate solvent PhCO 2 H + PhOH Add organic solvent (Et 2 O or ethyl acetate) and water. Discard aqueous phase to remove NaCl. OH In organic phase 3. You are performing a bromination of cis-1,2-diphenylethylene, and you obtain 3 products.
