Separation of Two Immiscible Liquids

Separating the Components of a Mixture :-

Heterogeneous mixture can be separated by simple physical methods like handpicking, filtration etc. But special methods are needed to separate components of a mixture.

Separation of Two Immiscible Liquids :-
The separation of two immiscible liquids can be done by using a separating funnel.

Take a separatory funnel and the mixture of diethyl ether in a separating funnel. Allow it to stand undisturbed for sometime.

The layers of diethyl ether and water get seperated. Place a receiving flask under the funnel, remove the stopper from the top and open the stopcock. Pour out the lower layer of water. Close the stopcock of the separating funnel as
diethyl ether reaches the stop cock.
