Would it be possible to separate hexane (b.p. 68.95 degrees Celsius) from toluene (b.p. 110.6 degrees Celsius) by simple distillation?
One would think so as long as the two don't form an azeotrope. I can't find anything on the web that confirms that an azeotrope exists between hexane and toluene but a number of sites hint that it does. You may want to go to www.google.com and type in some key phrases. I used "hexane and toluene azeotrope."
