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