Lab Report Format for Separating the Components of “Panacetin” (2) and Recrystallization and Melting Point Measurement: Identifying the Components of “Panacetin” (3). Lab Notebook Title and Date Objective: Explain the purpose of the experiment and how you plan to accomplish it. Technique: Show the use of separatory funnel and evaporation of solvent setup Reaction(s): Include the main reaction for the experiment and isolation scheme Physical Data: List the molecular weight, melting point, boiling point, density, solubility, and hazards of all pertinent chemicals used in the experiment. Data/Observations: Your observations of the experiment, a. Weight of initial panacetin sample. b. Weight of sucrose collected. c. Weight of aspirin collected. d. Weight of unknown compound isolated e. Weight of recrystallized unknown compound f. Melting point range of recrystallized unknown compound. g. TLC sketches with appropriate data for Rf calculations (Clearly label each column of spots on the page so I know what it is) h. Mixed melting point based on information from TLC Final Report
