Crystal Violet, Fluorenone, and Fluorene


The WebWare molecules of the month for the month of September are discussed in the article by Gail Horowitz, "A Discovery Approach to Three Organic Laboratory Techniques: Extraction, Recrystallization, and Distillation". In the extraction part of the experiment, students use aqueous washes to remove a highly polar colored contaminent (crystal violet) or a nonpolar colored contaminent (fluorenone) from a desired compound (fluorene).
