  • Melting Point

    Finding the melting point of an organic substance is a practical and efficient way for scientists to identify an unknown substance or determine a known substance’s level of purity. When organic substances are mixed together in varying degrees they take on a melting characteristic that is lower and broader than in its pure form. This property was manipulated in the lab to observe the various melting points of Naphthalene and Biphenyl when the percentage of composition was altered. A eutectic point of 45

    Mixture Melting Points Abstraction Determining the melting point is very significant in order to identify an unknown. In this experiment‚ measuring the melting point was done by using melting point apparatus. The melting point of the unknown sample #10 was 111.5˚C. There were two possible compounds which were dibenzoyl ethylene and o-Toluic acid because their melting points were 111.2˚C and 109.8˚C when each compound was mixed with the unknown. Therefore‚ the unknown #10 was dibenzoyl ethylene

  • Melting Point

    Introduction The melting point is defined as the temperature at which the solid is in equilibrium with its liquid‚ and this characteristic is very unique‚ so a substance can be determined by the melting point. Determination of the melting point is very important technique in many areas of chemistry especially‚ in organic chemistry area because the melting point is really significant in order to identify the purity and the identity of a substance. Measuring the melting point is a fast and cost-effective

  • Melting Point

    Melting Ice * Salt is routinely used to make icy roads and sidewalks safe in the winter. As soon as the salt comes in contact with the ice‚ the surface of the ice starts to melt. This only works‚ however‚ if the temperature outside is at or near freezing. If it is too cold outside‚ the ice itself becomes very dry and salt is not as effective in melting it. Salt Reduces Freezing Temperature of Water * Salt works by lowering the freezing temperature of water. Salt water needs to reach a colder

    Melting Point Determination and Thermometer Calibration Lab Background: The melting point of a substance‚ a solid in this case‚ signifies the temperature at which the first crystal starts to melt until the temperature at which the last crystal disappears is reached. That being said‚ melting points are expressed in ranges‚ am organic compound will have a sharp range depending on the purity of the compound. Impurity of an organic substance will register an abnormal melting point based on its

    Melting Point Determination Lab Materials: Graduated pipette Capillary tube Tin wipe Sample Melting temperature apparatus Thermometer Procedure: Take open end of capillary tube and tap it gently into sample. Take tin wipe and place over the opening. Gently tab it so the sample will funnel to the bottom of the tube. You may also use a graduated pipette to accomplish this. Now‚ place the capillary tube in the designated spot in the melting apparatus‚ and once placed‚ turn the apparatus

    with an acetic anhydride. Color impurities present in the solid acetaminophen will be removed and then the decolorized product will be collected on a Büchner funnel for further purification by crystallization. Purity will then be determined by melting point. Introduction: Acetaminophen is commonly used as an analgesic to reduce pain and fever. In this experiment it is prepared by the reaction of p-aminophenol with acetic anhydride‚ as illustrated below. Results: Isolation of crude acetaminophen The
