• Distillation is a technique used for separating a mixture of liquids. • The separation is based upon the differences in their boiling points (and thus the vapor pressure). • Boiling point and vapor pressure are inversely proportional (the higher the boiling point, the lower the vapor pressure and vice versa).

• An effective distillation requires that the components of the solution have significantly different boiling points (preferably between 30-40°C). • Example Background continued Toluene (BP 111°C) CH 3 CH 3 CH 2 CH 2 CH 2 CH 2 CH 3 Hexane (BP 69°C)

• During the process, a liquid is heated to its boiling point and the vapors generated are condensed by cooling and collected in a receiving vessel, or they return to the boiling mixture. • A theoretical plate represents one vaporization/ condensation cycle. • If two cycles occur, the distillation has two theoretical plates.

X axis = mole fraction of hexane Y axis = Temperature Curve X = Liquid Composition Curve Y = Vapor Composition When mole fraction of hexane is 1.0, the liquid will boil at ~ 69°C When mole fraction of toluene is 1.0, the liquid will boil at ~ 111°C Point m A n on the graph = mole fraction of hexane and toluene is 0.5 (liquid composition 50% each), the liquid will boil at ~ 80.8 °C. The corresponding vapor composition (Point m B n ) will be 77% hexane, 23% toluene Phase diagram
