Aspirin Lab a Acid catalyzed Nucleophilic acyl substitution b Phenol tests i Ferric chloride added color change to purple is positive ii If it stays orange it is negative iii Color intensity is dependent on concentration c Recrystallization i Purpose 1 Solute molecules assimilate into lattice and impurities are excluded 2 There are always losses due to solubility 3 Temperature of solvent is

Molecules in the liquid phase enter the gaseous phase depending on temperature size of the molecules and intermolecular attraction Boiling point temperature at which the vapr pressure of a liquid is equal to the con ning pressure atmospheric pressure Specifies that heating causes vaporation cooling causes condensation The heat exchanger is the condenser Used when separating liquids below 1500

Boiling range 7 temperature range where liquid distills Fraction 7 one of several liquid portions from your miscible mixture that are distilled at a speci c temperature Receiving ask 7 ask where your liquid fractions are collected Distillate your liquid product collected in the receiving ask Extraction 7 use of a separatory funnel to separate immiscible liquids Transferring a solute dissolved substance from one solvent to another The layer on top will be the one with the lower density Drying agents 7 Water removal from a liquid by means of a drying agent Can use CHzClz MgSO4 or NazSO4 Add the drying agent stir and allow to sit until the mixture is clear DOES NOT MEAN COLOURLESS Gravity ltration 7 Separation of heterogeneous mixtures using filter paper Uses uted filter paper a longstem glass funnel and something to collect the product Neutralization 7 acidbase rxn Second part of forming a soap The carboxylic acid reacts with a base to form the carboxylic acid salt Salting Out 7 keeps the organic out of the aqueous Sometimes the organic layer is slightly soluble in water When salt is added it dissolved in water and causes the organic layer to be less soluble in water Steam Distillation advantages include being able to distill the desired product at a temperature below 1000 Celsius Avoids decomposition The two substances can mix and codistill The desired component is nonmiscible and separates from the water Used in isolating liquids form natural sources eugenol or removing a reaction product from a tarry reaction mixture Uses a roundbottom ask and a re ux condenser with a stopper on top and water continually added Vacuum filtration 7 used to separate solid products from a solvent crystals Used in the recrystallization product Uses a special Erlenmeyer ask connected to vacuum tubing with a rubber piece attached to a funnel and base Filter paper in the base Recrystallization 7 a purifying method Mixture of compound A and impurity B are dissolved in a hot solvent to dissolve the mixture and make a saturated solution As it cools crystals are formed the impurity would remain in solution Multiple solvents can be used the rst one would have compound A and impurity B both soluble in it and then either compound A or impurity B would precipitate in the second solvent Typically followed by vacuum ltration TLC analysis 7 thin layer chromatography Absorbent is spread in a thin layer on a plastic or glass plate Small amount of mixture spotted on the absorbent layer on one end Plate is placed vertically in a container with the lower end resting in the developing solvent the spots must be above the surface of the solvent Spots move up by capillary action with varying rates Includes Rfvalue distance traveled by substance distance traveled by solvent Rotary evaporator 7 used for the ef cient and gentle removal of solvents from samples by evaporation sample was evaporated under reduced pressure Ice water is run through the condenser Used for eugenol Re ux set up Round bottom ask attached to a re ux condenser hooked up to the water Allows the reaction to proceed without burning off the solvent Melting point determination uses the MelTemp apparatus Melting range starts when the rst crystal melts to when the whole sample is melted IR analysis 7tells you what functional groups you have and which ones you don t have A neat sample

stabilized by resonance serve as nucleophiles in aldol condensation reactions Tautomers 7 isomers of organic compounds that regularly interconvert by a chemical reaction called tautomerization Results in the formal migration of a hydrogen atom or proton accompanied by a switch of a single bond and an adjacent double bond Alpha beta unsaturated ketones and aldehydes occurs as a result of aldol

normally a puri ed form Filtrate 7 the part that is discarded after ltration Salt plates 7the plates that are placed in an IR that the product is placed on Cannot be touched except around the edges Mobile phase the solvent in thin line or paper chromatography that travels up the silica or paper Developing phase Stationary phase 7 the absorbent that is xed to the silica or paper Rf value 7 distance travelled by substance distance traveled by solvent Used to determine the identity of a substance Plate spotting 7the substances are spotted to make it easier to see how they travel As they travel they will leave a spot that can be measured to identify the substance Soap a carboxylic acid salt RCOO39IMH M is usually Na or K Usually an even number of carbons Hydrophilic 7 water loving Hydrophobic water fearing Micelle 7 the aggregation of soap molecules with dirt and grease particles The hydrophic tails of the soap stick into the grease and the hydrophilic ends stick out into the
