Why is it that sodium chloride or acetic acid can't bee steam distilled??

  • college chemistry -

    NaCl is a solid and has no appreciable vapor pressure. I was under the impression that acetic acid CAN be steam distilled. I steam distilled an unknown I had when taking organic qual as a student and determined the Duclaux constant for acetic acid.And that was the unknown.
