How would you separate a mixture of equal amount of dibenalacetone a neutral compound and benzoic acid an acidic compound?

    I wonder if you meant to write dibenzalacetone? Add an organic solvent and NaHCO3 solution. Extract. The sodium salt of benzoic acid comes out in the water layer; the neutral compound stays in the organic layer.
