Need help with coming up with a extraction flow scheme for separating the compounds in this mixture: aniline, p-anisic acid, octanol, and NaCl


  • Chemistry -

    We can't draw diagrams on this forum but here is information that should be useful for you.
    NaCl is water soluble; the others are not. Therefore, extraction with H2O would take out the NaCl in the water layer and leaver the remainder behind.
    Aniline is a base, p-anisic acid an acid, and octanol neutral.
