Morgan Bailey Mb33295 Lab 2 Discussion In this week’s lab, we practiced the techniques of extraction and recrystallization. In the extraction experiment, you see two distinct different layers of liquid in the separatory funnel and we separated them. In the recrystallization experiment, we had to select an appropriate solvent, after that we dissolved the crystals, formed purified versions of them, isolated them with a funnel, and dried them. The theory behind the extraction experiment was that one substance can be split up into different parts between 2 solvents that can’t be mixed or blended with each other. It is used by chemists to separate and render products pure from most reactions. This is what we did in lab when we observed that when put together, 2 substances formed layers that are clearly different from each other and we separated one from the other. You could say that extraction is a type of “battle” between 2 non-dividing liquids for a particular solvent, which divides between the 2 liquids when it comes in contact with both of them
