  1. set both samples (at atmospheric pressure) in a dry ice box, once the both gases are liquified, remove them. The first to boil will be propane (bp -45F), followed by cyclopropane (bp -25F)

  2. Add Br2 IN THE DARK. Cyclopropane will add Br2 in the dark to form the bromopropane. Propane will do this but ONLY with UV (or sunlight) and not in the dark.
