In this unit, we shall consider some of the methods commonly employed for the purification, qualitative analysis and quantitative analysis of an organic compound. The various methods used for this purpose are: Distillation under reduced pressure 7. This is the most common way of purifying organic solids.
Int J Environ Anal Chem. Analytical isolation, separation and identification of mutagens from nonvolatile organics of drinking water. Tabor MW, Loper jC.
This procedure features concentration of the residue organics chromatographically by passage of the water through XAD-2 and XAD-7 resins in specially designed columns, details of which are given. The residue organics are eluted from the resins via organic solvents, followed by solvent removal and subsequent bioassay for mutagenicity.
In this report, results for the optimal operation and validation of the concentration system are given, using drinking water derived from an industrially polluted river system, a wilderness river system and a major aquifer system.
The predominant type of mutagenesis observed for the residue organics isolated from these samples was direct-acting to the Salmonella tester strain, TA98, which was decreased by the addition of the metabolic activation system from the livers of rats previously treated with Arochlor Some TA direct-acting mutagenesis was observed for all samples.
Fractionation of the residue organics indicated the mutagens to be nonpolar. Samples of residue organics collected over a period of a year from each type of drinking water showed no discernable pattern of mutagenesis versus season.The residue organics are eluted from the resins via organic solvents, followed by solvent removal and subsequent bioassay for mutagenicity.
Then the residue organics are fractionated via a coupled bioassay/analytical fractionation method which progressively focuses to the bioactive constituents of the complex mixture of residue organics. (v) Separation and Drying of Crystals. The crystals are separated from the mother liquor by filtration with the help on a Buchner funnel and a suction pump (Fig.
The crystals obtained on the filter paper. are washed two or three times with small quantities of the pure solvent.
Experimental learning objectives: At the end of this experiment you should be able to: (i) use a separatory/dropping funnel; (ii) dry an organic liquid; (iii) use a rotary evaporator; (iv) identify the organic phase in an immiscible organic/aqueous mixture; (v) use acid/base reactions to impact the solubility of organic compounds and (vi) determine melting points.
