Distillation is a way to purify a liquid. If the contaminant is nonvolatile or the boiling points of the liquids in a mixture are very different, a simple distillation is enough. But most of the time, fractional distillation is required. This lecture covers vapor pressure, boiling point, boiling chips (prevent superheated solutions), Daltons Law, Raoults Law, azeotropes, and how a fractionating column and condenser work.
