C127 Lecture 12 Notes- Aspirin 4-14-16  Essentially: salicylic acid + acetic anhydride + heat = acetylsalicylic acid  Decomposes into acetic acid and salicylic acid over time  Learning Goals o Use qualitative test to assess purity of a sample o Use melting point determinations to assess purity of a sample o Use Thin Layer Chromatography to assess purity of a sample  Safety o All liquid/solid waste should go in waste bottle o Dispose of all glass in broken glass bucket o Make sure melting point apparatus turned off at end  Melting Point o Every chemical compound has unique point o Intermolecular forces between molecules in crystal lattice control melting point o Impurities weaken intermolecular forces and lower melting point o Can identify and assess purity of a compound  Salicylic acid has different melting point than aspirin- if measured value closer to salicylic’s melting point than aspirin’s, substance decomposed badly  Temperature at melting point identifies compound present  Size of temperature range over which melting occurs tells about purity of sample- broader range less pure, smaller range (2-3℃) higher purity  When given expected melting point, melting should occur within the 2-3℃ range of that value o Ex. Made-up value for to show comparison: Expected Melting Point Measured Melting Range Pure Aspirin 149℃ 147-150℃ Impure Aspirin 149℃ 140-148℃ (lower and broader) o Melting starts with first drop of liquid you see in tube; finishes when no more solid present  Thin-Layer Chromatography o Identifies compound, assesses purity o Interaction of molecules with a solid phase and a moving liquid phase  When molecule interacting with solid, it does not move  When molecule interacting with solvent, it moves with liquid o Different molecules have different “preferences” for liquid/solid phases, so they travel different distances on TLC plate  Characterized by unique
