You wish to purify by distillation a material that has a boiling point of 205 C and reacts with air but this material will decompose if heated above 150 C. How would you set up the system to distill this material?

Show steps Pleaseeeee!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you!!!!

  1. There are no "steps" per se except to set up a vacuum distillation apparatus. We can't draw structures on this forum but you can Google "vacuum distillation apparatus image" and obtain several nice pictures. I can find some if you can't.

    If I am doing a fractional distillation, is the temperature of the first few drops of the distillation considered part of the boiling range? Or do you wait until later in the distillation?
