The compounds below are contained in a mixed sample. Rank the compounds in order of elitism if separated using a silica gel column rank them from what elutes first to what elutes last.
Benzoic acid, 1,3-dichlorobenzene, tert-butylcyclohexane, and 2-pentanol

So far from first to last I'm thinking it's: 2-pentanol, tert-butylcyclohexane, 1,3-dichlorobenzene, benzoic acid.
