Experiment 5: Extraction and Purification

The next week will be filled with extractions, recrystallizations, and even one synthesis!

Here are some resources to use!

A great post that sums up extractions.  Not everything is applicable, but it will give some good background on why we are doing certain things. Also, check out more of this blog! There’s stories of explosions, dead pigeons, and many hospital visits all while the author was under 18 in Communist-Poland.

What you don’t want to see…
Sublimation! (of ferrocene. your stuff should be white!)

Happy purifying!
