Experiment 10 Separation and Purification Scheme 2460-014 Maitri Patel Abstract The main purpose of this experiment was to separate a mixture of Benzoic acid, Benzoin, and 1,4-dibromobenzene and to purify the separated compounds. I used the knowledge of solubility, extraction, and recrystallization to get a good yield of the pure compounds. First, I used acid base precipitation reaction chemistry and extraction techniques to separate the yield of the pure samples. Then, I used solubility and recrystallization techniques to get the organic pure product. Background Information Extraction: The knowledge of extraction is necessary to separate the acid and base part. My sample, Benzoic acid can be separated by combining it into the aqueous part and then precipitating out products using an acid. This way we can separate the base part from the mixture, which can be purified later by recrystallization. The problem with separation of two compounds is that are not a base and a neutral compound.
