Unformatted text preview: capillary tube so that the drop is about i cm. from one end. Hold the tube horizontally and quickly seal this end in a micro-burner. Attach the tube (with the open end upwards) to a thermometer in the melting-point apparatus (Fig. i(c), p. 3) so that the trapped bubble of air in the capillary tube is below the surface of the bath-liquid. Now heat the bath, and take as the b.p. of the liquid that temperature at which the upper level of the bubble reaches the level of the surface of the bath liquid, (b) Prepare a fairly wide capillary tube A (ca. 4 mm. X 8 cm.) (Fig. 32). Using a fine pipette insert about i cm. length of the liquid into the bottom of the tube. Now place in the tube A a fine inverted melting-point tube B of about i mm. diameter, sealed at the upper end. Fasten the capillary tube to the ther- FIG. 32. mometer by means of a rubber band and place in a melting-point apparatus. Heat slowly until a stream of bubbles rises from the bottom...
