Distillation of Alcoholic Beverages

Abstract This experiment aimed to separate and calculate in percentage the alcohol content of a commercial alcoholic beverage by means of fractional distillation. Twenty milliliters of rum, with a proof of 72, and 36% alcohol content, underwent fractional distillation. An amount of 0. 5 ml of distillate was collected in each test tube until the… View Article

Distillation of Alcoholic Beverages Distillation of Alcoholic Beverages

Abstract We used a Quickfit Set Up in order to perform a Simple Distillation procedure. We used 15mL of The Bar as our distillate. We separated and calculated the alcohol content of the said beverage by the distillation process. Introduction Alcoholic beverages are undeniably part of our culture for a long time already. It has… View Article

Dehydration of Alcohols

Abstract The dehydration of cyclohexanol to cyclohexene can be done through fractional distillation. Once the fraction has been collected it must then be dried. The dried distillate is finally tested to determine whether or not it has been dehydrated. The three tests used were infrared spectroscopy, Bromine chemical test and Bayer’s chemical test. The infrared… View Article

Distillation of Alcoholic Beverages

Distillation is the process where compounds are purified by separating the more volatile substance from non-volatile or less volatile substance. An example of this is the differences in boiling point. Boiling point is the temperature when the vapor pressure of a liquid-phased compound equals with the pressure exerted on it. This external pressure is usually… View Article

Steam Distillation of Eugenol

Introduction: This experiment involves an extraction of a natural product using the techniques of steam distillation. The principle component of oil of cloves is an aromatic compound, which is identified by thin layer chromatography (TLC). Eugenol is widely used in dentistry, due to its analgesic, antiseptic balsamic qualities. It is ideal for curative for pulp… View Article

Fermentation of Carbohydrates: Ethanol from Sucrose

Objective: To demonstrate a fermentation process, isolate the ethanol produced by fractional distillation, determine the composition of the ethanol solution recovered, and make stoichiometric and yield calculations. Procedures: Fermentation Weigh out 20.0 g of sucrose and place it into a 250-mL Erlenmeyer flask. Add 100 mL of water and gently shake until all the sucrose… View Article

Separation of a mixture of solids

Purpose: Purpose: To determine and execute the separation of mixture of solids through different means. Examples are magnetisms, evaporation, and filtration Procedure: I used a measuring device such as a scale, funnel, beaker, magnet, saucer, and graduated cylinder to determine the values for each measurement. Data Table: Experiment data Grams Percent of Mixture Iron filings… View Article

Macromolecules lab bio 1 lab

The macromolecule lab taught us how to set up a comparison to determine what a positive and negative test for a macromolecule looked like. Afterwards we used our positively tested samples as comparisons to determine whether or not the unknown food items that were brought in were positive for any of the four macromolecules. Statement:… View Article

Continuous Deionization and Continuous Electro Deionization Systems.

Continuous Deionization and Continuous Electro Deionization Systems. Our electrodeionization systems remove dissolved inorganics effectively and do not use any chemicals, which translates into cost savings. They require no chemical regeneration, no chemical disposal, no resin disposal, and low energy. These systems could reduce operating costs within your water treatment system, provide a safer workplace and… View Article

Synthesis of Phenacetin from para-Acetamidophenol

Experimental: Sodium metal was patted dry to remove any oil and was cat into small pieces. A dry 100cm3 round bottom flask was placed on a cork ring, on a balance and tarred sodium metal (0.6g) was placed into the flask. The flask was then attached to the dry reflux condenser and industrial methylated spirits… View Article

The simple distillation method Lab

The purpose of this lab was for students to familiarize and perfect the simple distillation method to produce 4-Methylcyclohexene and to gain experience using an IR spectroscopy to characterize the product of the reaction in favor of equilibrium. B.Results and Discussion: C.Experimental: 24 mL of 4-methylcyclohexanol, 5mL of phosphoric acid, and 1mL of concentrated sulfuric… View Article

Fractional Distillations

In this experiment we aim to demonstrate that we can separate two volatile compounds from a mixture due to the different chemical properties of each compound. We will accomplish this by a separation procedure known as distillation, which relies on each compound having a distinct and separate boiling point. Our pure products will be analyzed… View Article

Fractional Distillation

Abstract An equimolar mixture of cyclohexane and toluene was separated by simple and fractional distillation, using an empty column and a copper sponge column respectively. Using helium as the mobile phase, the distillate was analyzed through gas chromatography. The calculated HETP for the simple distillation was 8.274 cm/plate and the 3.332 cm/plate for the fractional… View Article

Organic Chemistry Laboratory – Formal Report

Introduction The study is about distillation. Distillation is a process of converting a liquid to a vapor, and then, collecting the distillate in another container. This technique is used to separate components in a liquid mixture which have different boiling points, or to separate a component that is not volatile. It is one of the… View Article
