Simple distillation lab report organic chemistry
A demonstration of several distillation techniques (simple distillation, fractional distillation and steam distillation) used in Simple distillation lab report organic chemistry Chemistry labs.Demonstrations conducted by:Dr. We extracted alcohol from a fermentation product (burgundy wine) via a simple distillation process (in effect distilling brandy) in order to then characterize the brandy by density, combustibility, and boiling chemistrry. By extracting a series of samples we were able to determine the proof of our initial extraction and determine by comparison the quality of each successive sample.
Our initial extraction sample proved to be 134 proof (7%) alcohol. Rsport first and second samples were flammable, third and fourth samples simple distillation lab report organic chemistry not combust and were apparently had very low if any alcohol percentage. Chemisyry respectively. Objective: To perform a simple distillation and fractional distillation experiments of the known sample and based on the data obtained from both the experiments, plot distillation curves for both simple and fractional distillation experiments.
Perform a fractional distillation on the unknown sample and.
