Homework Help: science (chem)

Posted by ~christina~ on Sunday, September 9, 2007 at 2:39pm.

What would the best way to determine the organic layer from the aqueous layer in a extraction procedure?

~would it be to add a few drops of water to each layer and see what happens? or is there a better way since this procedure of adding a few drops of water to the extraction vial would introduce water into the organic layer and then the water would thus have to be removed and thus would defeat the whole purpose of seperating the layers in the first place.

Thanks =D
