Homework Help: organic chemistry

Posted by Ashley on Wednesday, September 26, 2012 at 11:26pm.

Why is steam distillation rather than a simple distillation used to isolate eugenol?

My answer is because the temperature goes nowhere near their boiling points, which minimises the risk of decompostion.

Is it that right? If not then don't you mind if you can explain to me please. Thank!
