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.
Lecture Slides are screen-captured images of important points in the lecture. Students can download and print out these lecture slide images to do practice problems as well as take notes while watching the lecture.
This is the actual book that Dr. Laurie Starkey teaches out of as a professor, and manages to be both clear and yet precise. The book presents a logical, systematic approach to understanding the principles of organic reactivity and the mechanisms of organic reactions.
This book includes all of the concepts typically covered in an organic chemistry textbook, but special emphasis is placed on skills development to support these concepts. This emphasis upon skills development will provide students with a greater opportunity to develop proficiency in the key skills necessary to succeed in organic chemistry.
