Separating Fluorine and 9-fluroenone with TLC and Column Chromatography

Written by Alex Discussion: In this lab, both column chromatography and TLC chromotography were used to separate a mixture of fluorine and 9-fluroenone and detect their separation.  In the first part of the experiment, a proper solvent was experimentally found. Through process of elimination, the best solvent for the flourene/fluroenone mixture was found one at a time by performing a TLC chromatography with each solvent.  This is done by spotting a TLC plate on a line penciled in 1cm from […]
