Module C (Quizlet) 5

Technical Escort - Chemical Operations

Distillation The process of purification of compounds based on their volatility
Simple distillation Used for a mixture in which the boiling point of the liquids differ by at least 70 degrees Celsius
Fractional distillation Used for mixtures which the boiling point of the liquids in nearly similar or differs 25 degrees Celsius, cannot be separated by simple distillation
Reflux Used to create custom compounds that do not normally join together, with tight temperature controls and slow additions over an extended period of time
Vacuum distillation Special method of separating compounds at pressure lower than the standard atmospheric pressure, the compounds boil below their normal boiling temperature, and preferred for compounds boiling points are above 200 degrees Celsius, due to decomposing
Separation Used in liquid-liquid extractions to separate components of a mixture into two immiscible solvent phases of different densities
Filtration Used to separate liquids from solids
Extraction Used and required when the desired compound has a limited solubility in a solvent and the impurity is insoluble in that solvent
What kind of technology does the FirstDefender use? RAMAN spectrometry
What is the maximum operating temperature range for the FirstDefender? -4 to 104 degrees Fahrenheit
What is the maximum storage temperature range for the FirstDefender? -22 to 104 degrees Fahrenheit
