Goal: To purify a mixture of two liquids using distillation.
Part of MIT OpenCourseWare (http://ocw.mit.edu) course "Chemistry Lab Techniques", these labs were designed to give first year MIT students practical hands-on introduction to the basic techniques of experimental chemistry in a laboratory setting. Labs bring science concepts alive as students observe, practice, and experiment with problems. High school science teachers and advanced high school students will find these materials useful. The MIT site has additional related videos and readings.
