I don't know how this fits into TLC chromatography but here is what I would do.
5.6 mL x 0.95% = mL x 85%
mL = 6.2588 mL is what you can make.
So you take 5.6 mL 95:5 ethyl acetate and add pure ethyl acetate to make 6.2588 mL total. Check it. You have 5.6 mL x 0.95 = 5.32 mL pure ethyl acetate in the 5.6 mL sample. What percent is that of 6.2588?
(5.32/6.2588)*100 = 85. I know I've used too many significant figures but on such small numbers it wouldn't come out to quite 85%.
This is a strange problem and I may have interpreted it incorrectly. You can check the % ethyl acetate, too.
mL pure ethyl acetate in the 5.6 mL initially = 5.6-5.32 = 0.28.
We have added pure ethyl acetate of 6.2588-5.6 = 0.6588 added.
Total = 0.6588 + 0.28 = 0.9388.
Then (0.9388/6.2588)* 100 = 14.99968.
Again the s.f. are not right but I wanted the numbers to come out to 85 and 15.
In a chemically active extraction, a three-component mixture of acetylsalicylic acid, acetaminophen, and caffeine in ethyl acetate solution is separated into its individual components first by extraction with a pH 8 buffer
The following two solvents systems were found to separate compounds x and y by flash column chromatography: X- hexanes/ethyl acetate 10:1 Y- hexanes/ethyl acetate 10:4 which is more polar X or Y? Which solvent system must be used
Acetone, C3H6O, and ethyl acetate, C4H8O2, are organic liquids often used as solvents. At 30 degrees C, the vapor pressure of acetone is 285 mm Hg and the vapor pressure of ethyl acetate is 118mm Hg. the solution is prepared at 30
