Homework Help: Organic Chemistry - Extraction

Posted by Camille on Sunday, October 3, 2010 at 3:08pm.

You have 100 mL of a solution of benzoic acid in water; the amount of benzoic acid in the solution is estimated to be about 0.30 g. The distribution coefficient of benzoic acid in diethyl ether and water is approximately 10. Calculate the amount of acid that would be left in the water solution after four 20-mL extractions with ether. Do the same calculation, using one 80-mL extraction with ether, to determine which method is more efficient.
