Would it be possible to separate hexane (b.p. 68.95 degrees Celsius) from toluene (b.p. 110.6 degrees Celsius) by simple distillation?

  • Organic Chemistry -

    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."
