Solvent Extraction

SOLVENT EXTRACTION Solvent extraction, also known as liquid extraction and partitioning, is a method to separate compounds based on their relative solubility in two different immiscible liquid, usually water and organic solvent. It is an extraction from one liquid phase to another liquid phrase. Liquid extraction is a basic technique in chemical laboratories, where it is performed using a separator funnel. This type of process is commonly performed after a chemical reaction as part of the work-up...

Recrystallization: Solvent and Solubility

Recrystallization is the primary method for purifying solid organic compounds through the differences in solubility at different temperatures. In this experiment, a suitable solvent was first determined. Acetanilide was produced by acetylation of aniline with acetic anhydride. The crude acetanilide was dissolved in a solvent in a heating water bath. The hot solution was filtered and the filtrate, cooled slowly in an ice bath as crystals started forming out. As the compound crystallizes from the solution...

Effect of Organic Solvents

SYNTHETIC EXPLOITATION OF ENZYMES: BIOCATALYSIS IN ORGANIC SOLVENTS: FUNDAMENTALS ENZYMES IN ORGANIC SYNTHESIS 1. Enzymes catalyze a broad spectrum of reactions with high turnover numbers. Rate enhancements approach 1012 fold. 2. Enzymes may accept a wide range of substrates. 3. Enzymes are highly regio and stereoselective. 4. Enzyme reactions take place under mild conditions; this minimizes problems of isomerization and racemization. 5. Enzymatic processes are less hazardous and polluting...

Solvent and Double Bond

Lab #2 (Part A,B) Due date: Oct 5, 2010 1 - Theory and mechanism Epoxidation is a reaction of an alkene with a peroxycarboxylic acid (also called peracid) to produce an epoxide product, generally performed in inert solvents, such as dichloromethane. The epoxide product is a cyclic ether in which the ring contains three atoms. The alkene gains an oxygen from the peracid in a syn fashion. In this experiment, R-(-)-carvone is reacting with MCPBA, a peracid, to produce the epoxide product. ...

Recrystallization of Acetanilide Using Water as Solvent

Santo Tomas Faculty of Pharmacy Organic Chemistry Laboratory RECRYSTALLIZATION OF ACETANILIDE USING WATER AS SOLVENT Lagarteja, M.C.B.; Lim, H.G.N.; Lizo, K.J.R.; *Macalino, M.D.L.; Macapala, C. 2D-Pharmacy, Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Santo Tomas Abstract Recrystallization is a technique used to purify organic solids. This method involves dissolving of a solute in a solvent and inciting the solute to produce a precipitate from a solution. In this experiment, acetic anhydride was added...

Separating Acids and Neutral Compounds by Solvent Extraction

Separating Acids and Neutral Compounds by Solvent Extraction Introduction The purpose of this experiment was to use solvent extraction techniques in order to separate a mixture consisting of a carboxylic acid (p-toulic acid), a phenol (p-tert-butylphenol), and a neutral compound (acetanilide). Extraction is the process of selectively dissolving one or more of the compounds of a mixture into an appropriate solvent, the solution that contains these dissolved compounds is called an extract (Manion...

Investigation the effect of the organic solvents on the cell membrane of the beetroot

Investigation the effect of the organic solvents on the cell membrane of the beetroot Objective: To investigate the effect of different organic solvents, such as alcohol and paraffin oil, on the cell membrane of the beetroot by using the red pigments in the beetroot as indicator. Hypothesis: Organic solvents dissolve the organic matter in the cell membrane (such as phospholipids). This destroys the cell membrane, and the permeability of the cell membrane is disrupted casing red pigments...

Hydrolysis of tert-butyl Chloride in different solvents

different solvents Practical conducted on 5 March, 2013 Reported by Pham Vu Hung on 10 March, 2013  Introduction: This practical is meant to measure the rate of reaction of the hydrolysis of tertiary-butyl chloride –a colorless, liquid organic compound at room temperature that is sparingly soluble in water - in water/acetone and water/isopropanol mixtures. Since there are many influencing factors for the rate of reaction, all are kept constant but the intended variable: the solvents. If the...
