Gas Chromatography to Identify Orange Oil in a n-Hexane Unknown

Written by Juan Purpose: The purpose of this experiment was to determine the percentage of orange oil in an n-hexane unknown solution by analyzing the wt% of d-limonene through gas chromatography, using anisole as an internal standard. Sample Calculations Weight of Anisole in Standard #1     Weight of Limonene in Standard #1     Limonene: Anisole weight ratio in Standard #1     Limonene: Anisole peak area ratio in Standard #1   LLS Slope, intercept, and equation for internal […]
