Designed to address the experiments detailed in the Williamson text Macroscale and Microscale Organic Experiments published by D.C. Heath and Company, Lexington, Massachusetts. These experiments can also be performed with the KONTES Microscale Kit (1217C23).
Students use the separatory funnel for extractions and for liquid addition in reaction assemblies. Classical atmospheric, steam, fractional, and vacuum distillations are possible with kit components. Apparatus set-up time is minimal, providing the student with more lab time. Smaller quantities afford a greater degree of safety, improve air quality in the lab, and substantially reduced disposal costs.
