C127 Lecture 4 Notes- Separation Anxiety 2-4-16  Learning goals o Learn to use differences in physical/chemical properties to separate mixtures into pure components o Learn to draw separation diagrams to describe process o Learn how/when to perform extractions and vacuum filtrations o Learn fractional crystallization  Safety/Waste Disposal o Review safety agreement, especially sections on protective clothing/chemical spills o Ethyl acetate has high vapor pressure and is flammable- keep away from heat, use in hood o Potassium nitrate solid should be placed in labeled waste bottle o Copper sulfate solution should be collected in aqueous waste bottle o Sand should be placed in used sand bottle o Ethyl acetate and mineral oil should be placed in organic waste bottle  Why do chemists need to separate mixtures of compounds into pure components? o Searching for new pharmaceuticals from plants/microbes/algae o Toxicologists or forensic chemists trying to identify drugs or adulterants in materials o Industrial chemists who synthesize desired products along with unwanted byproducts  Separation Techniques o Filtration- solid from liquid o Separation funnel- for two immiscible liquids (not dissolved in each other) o Distillation- for two miscible liquids o Fractional crystallization- for two soluble solids (or ones alike in solubility)  Dissolve both solids in solvent  Lower temperature to attempt to crystallize/precipitate one solid; one will hopefully be less soluble than other  Filter precipitate out o Extraction- soluble solid from insoluble solid; done in two steps  Dissolve one solid in mixture in suitable solvent  Filter solution to separate soluble solid from insoluble  Types of Crystalline Solids o Molecular  Composite units are molecules  Low melting points  Ex. Ice o Ionic  Composite units are formula units (cations and anions)  High melting points  Ex. Table salt o Atomic  Composite units are atoms  Nonbonding  Held together by weak dispersion forces  Low melting points  Ex. Solid Xenon  Metallic  Held together by metallic bonds  Variable melting points  Ex. Gold  Network covalent  Held together by covalent bonds  High melting points  Insoluble  Ex. Quartz (silicon dioxide- atoms are still base units, not molecules)  For this lab: o ???????????? 3ecomes more soluble than ???????????????? as 4emperature increases o Will have more ???????????? 3n mixture than ???????????????? 4 o Ex. (See solubility graph in lab document) If we take 20???? 3???????? in 100????2???? ???? at 50℃ and cool the solution to 0℃, what will happen?  10???? would precipitate, because at 0℃, solubility of ????????3 is 10???? per 100???? ????2????  10???? stays dissolved o Ex. If we have 5???? ????????????????4in 100???? ???? 2 at 50℃ and cool the solution to 0℃, what would happen?  Nothing would precipitate, because solubility at 0℃ is 10???? per 100????2???? ???? o Things to consider:  Simple mixture of two compounds fairly straightforward  What if mixture has > 2 components?  Plan out steps with separation diagram o Ex. Making a separation diagram: Soap dissolved in water will precipitate when an excess of sodium chloride is dissolved in the water.   Starting items on top  Add process next to vertical line o NOTE: Separation diagram for materials in this lab will be all the procedure you need in notebook
