Clove Oil Eugenol Lab

of Acetyleugenol (Clove Oil) from Cloves Purpose In this experiment, you will obtain the essential oil from cloves by steam distillation. You will then separate a component (acetyleugenol) from the oil by liquid-liquid extraction. Finally, you will isolate the acetyleugenol by using a rotovap for reduced pressure distillation, which will remove the organic solvent (dichloromethane). Background Whole cloves contain between 14% and 20% by weight of essential oils, but only half...

Isolation of Eugenol from Cloves

Isolation of Eugenol from Cloves Abstract The experiment conducted, isolation of eugenol from cloves, is the extraction of the essential oil. To perform this experiment cloves and water were mixed together and heated by a heating mantle in a round-bottom flask. A direct stem distillation took place, and the oil product was out aside for a week. After one week, the isolation of the eugenol actually takes place. Next the thin-layer chromatographic analysis takes place, but the experiment...

Isolation of Eugenol from Cloves

Edward Cross Organic Chemistry December 10, 2012 Title Steam Distillation of Cloves and Extraction of Eugenol Authors Edward J. Cross* Summary The isolation of Eugenol from Cloves begins with whole cloves and then using a steam distillation apparatus to obtain the cloves oil substance. Then with the mixtures of water and dichloromethane to form two immiscible layers. The layers were dichloromethane substance and aqueous The entire substances that are separated into two individual...

Isolation of the Major Component of Clove Oil

Experiment 7- Isolation of the Major Component of Clove Oil Pre-Lab Questions: 1.) Briefly explain the concept of steam distillation. What is the difference between a simple distillation and a steam distillation? When a mixture of two immiscible liquids are distilled it is referred to as codistillation. This process is referred to as steam distillation when one of the liquids is water. This distillation is used to separate organic liquids from natural products and reaction mixtures in...

Isolation of Clove Oil

and isolate a natural product from cloves. Introduction By performing steam distillation we can isolate eugenol at lower temperature than its usual boiling point of 248 degree Celsius. Eugenol belongs to a category called essential oil. Many of these compounds are used as flavoring and perfumes and in the past were considered the essence of plant from which they were derived. Structure of eugenol (clove oil) and eugenol acetate: Reagents: Eugenol, CH2Cl2, Br2, FeCl3, Methanol ...

Steam Distillation of Eugenol from Cloves.

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 hyperemia (the soft, sensitive substance underneath the enamel and dentine of a tooth) and pulp its. In dentistry eugenol is also used to cover cavities, fill canals, etc. It also keeps food fresh and kills off bacteria and viruses. Eugenol helps keep meat fresh...
