A mixture of fluorene and benzoic acid is dissolved in diethyl ether and mixed thoroughly with an aqueous solution of NaOH. After the layers separate, what will each of the layers contain? Label the layers. Indicate the main components, not species that could be present in trace amounts.

There is a bottom and top layer so the which of the following goes in which layer:
- organic layer
- diethyl ether
- fluorene
- benzene
- aqueous layer
- water
- benzoate ion
- HCl
