design a procedue to separate a mixture that contains menthol,ethanol and 1 pentanol. explain with references to intermolecular forces why your procedure is effective for seperation this mixture

  • Chemistry -

    Look up the boiling points for methanol, ethanol, and 1-pentanol and see if they are candidates to be seaprated by fractional distillation.

  • Chemistry -

    The question asks about separating menthol (not methanol), ethanol and 1 pentanol.

    These can be separated by fractional distillation as the boiling points are widely spaced.

    menthol 216C
    ethanol 78C
    1-pentanol 137C
