Extraction data for acetophenone Measured on the UV-visible spectrophotometer at 246 nm Approximate concentration of stock solution: 1000 mg/L Group # Vol. stock Vol. octanol Measured Time of Notes soln. used used Absorbance absorbance (mL) (mL) of aq. phase reading ===== ===== ===== ===== ===== ===== 4 40.0 60.0 1.53 1:20 PM 1.51 1:25 PM B 1.52 1:35 PM 5 30.0 70.0 0.97 1:12 PM 0.960 1:18 PM B 1.02 1:22 PM A 0.96 1:30 PM 6 20.0 80.0 0.62 1:16 PM 0.59 1:21 PM B 0.58 1:31 PM 0.59 1:37 PM NIOTES: A The third reading of group #5 does not appear to make much sense. Perhaps there was a smudge on the cuvette? B For all three groups, notice that the absorbance on the first reading was higher than the absorbance on the second reading. This probably indicates that the system was still equilibrating. Notice that the second and third (or fourth) readings appear to be consistent, which probably indicates that equilibrium had been reached. So. ..which of the recorded absorbance readings will you use for your data analysis?

Unformatted text preview: Approximate concentration of stock solution: 870 mg/L Group # Vol. stock Vol. octanol Measured Day of Notes soln. used used Absorbance absorbance (mL) (mL) of aq. phase reading ===== ===== ===== ===== ===== ===== 1 95.0 5.0 0.42 Tues A 0.61 Tues A 0.21 Wed B 2 90.0 10.0 0.48 Tues B 0.18 Wed B 3 85.0 15.0 0.42 Tues B 0.110 Wed B NOTES: A Group 1 took a measurement with a cuvette that wasn't very full, and got an absorbance of 0.424. Then, they filled the cuvette further, and re-measured absorbance, getting 0.609. B After letting the separatory funnels sit undisturbed for about 22 hrs, the separation was much better. The aqueous phase was still a little bit cloudy, but it was clearly better than it had been during the lab session on Tuesday. Therefore the absorbances measured on Wednesday should be more representative of equilibrium conditions than the values measured on Tuesday....
