This experiment will look into and analyze the Raoult ‘s jurisprudence behavior of a binary solution of propanone and methylbenzene to see if the mixture solution follows Raoult ‘s jurisprudence of ideal solution. This experiment is conducted by presenting the vapour-phase of mixture solution into the cuvette utilizing cotton wool with solution and a Ultra-Violet Visible Light ( UV-VIS ) spectrum is obtained to happen out the optical density of the propanone and methylbenzene separately utilizing the rectification of the spectra. The optical density of propanone and methylbenzene will utilize to cipher the partial force per unit area of each solution.
These partial force per unit areas will be compared to the pure partial force per unit area obtained from literature by building a Raoult ‘s jurisprudence secret plan graph and Phase Diagram ( liquid-vapour diagram ) . The experiment consequence has shown that acetone-toluene solution is non an ideal solution and did non follow Raoult ‘s jurisprudence wholly with a positive divergence from the theoretical Raoult ‘s jurisprudence secret plan was observed. The positive divergence shows that the acetone-acetone and toluene-toluene interaction is stronger than the acetone-toluene interaction. Possible mistakes will discourse in ulterior portion of study.
The purpose of this experiment is to analyze the Raoult’s jurisprudence behavior of a binary solution of acetone-toluene.
Raoult’s jurisprudence stated that the partial force per unit area of any constituent will be the vapour force per unit area of that constituent in the pure province multiplied by its mole fraction in the liquid mixture of an ideal solution.
Raoult’s jurisprudence merely obeyed when the solution is ideal and the intermolecular interaction is equal to those of the pure constituents. It is besides satisfied merely for mixture with constituent of really similar molecular size, form and chemical belongingss. In an ideal solution incorporating constituent A and B, the A-B interaction are assumed to be tantamount to A-A and A-B interaction. Raoult ‘s jurisprudence of ideal solution can be shown as:
PA and PB are the vapour force per unit area of A and B over a solution while XA and XB is the several mole fraction. and are the vapour force per unit area of the constituent A and B in pure signifiers and P sum is the entire vapour force per unit area of the solution.
It is uncommon for solution to obey Raoult ‘s jurisprudence precisely and existent solution used in experiment pervert from Raoult ‘s jurisprudence by positive divergence or negative divergence that are caused by the A-B interaction to be less or more than the A-A and B-B interactions in which ensuing in the solution incorporating higher or lower force per unit area than predicted.
In this experiment, a series of different concentration of acetone-toluene will be prepared and will be evaporated in the cuvette which will be used to be step for the several optical density. The sum of vaporization is assumed to be and the partial vapour force per unit area of propanone or methylbenzene constituent utilizing:
Pi is the partial force per unit area for I, Absi is the mensural optical density of I in the vapour stage at its wavelength of maximal soaking up ( I»max ) corrected for any spectral convergence between constituent A and B, is the vapour force per unit area of pure I at the temperature of measuring and is the mensural optical density of pure I in the vapour stage at its I»max.
A series of acetone-toluene solutions were prepared by pipetting the dissolver into four 5ml volumetric flasks harmonizing .
Then, a little cotton ball was wet with appropriate sum of pure propanone and was inserts into top of one of the two empty 1cm vitreous silica cuvette that were used to carry on the baseline scan with the UV-VIS spectrometer over the wavelength 225 to 350nm. There is safeguard to do certain no presenting liquid into the cuvette or wall of cuvette. The cap of the cuvette was covered instantly to minimise vaporization loss into the ambiance and after three proceedingss to make equilibrium, the soaking up spectrum of the blues was obtained. Concluding soaking up spectrum was obtained with no farther alteration observed. Last, air was flushed into the cuvette to take vapor of propanone. It is so repeated for pure methylbenzene and Solution 1 to 4.

Consequences and Discussion
Analysis of Spectra
The spectrum gotten from the experiment which shows optical density extremums of pure propanone, pure methylbenzene and solution 1 to solution 4 can be found in Appendix 2.
The spectrum has shown a diminishing tendency of propanone optical density clearly from solution 1 to solution 2. This agrees with anticipation of the spectrum as harmonizing to the composing of propanone for each solution.
At the maximal optical density wavelength ( I»max ) of propanone, the optical density is tantamount to the partial force per unit area of the propanone utilizing the equation 4. At the maximal optical density wavelength ( I»max ) of methylbenzene, the optical density is tantamount to the partial force per unit area of the methylbenzene utilizing the equation 4.
For the solution of mixture, it will be hard to happen out the optical density of each single optical density of propanone and methylbenzene. Fortunately, the spectra of the mixture of solution are habit-forming in conformity to Beer-lambert ‘s jurisprudence which is proven when the spectra of solution 1 to 4 show combination extremums of pure propanone and methylbenzene with lone different in optical density value from the pure propanone and methylbenzene. Therefore, in order to happen the optical density of propanone and methylbenzene separately in the mixture, there is a demand to rectify the convergence of the spectra. First, it is assumed that the spectrum for pure propanone is symmetrical. At any point of the spectrum of pure propanone with a peculiar wavelength, there will be a corresponding point on the spectrum with the same optical density at the exact same sum of wavelength off from the lambda soap ( I»max ).
So, at 266.8nm wavelength, it is the lambda soap ( I»max ) of pure methylbenzene and at 276.1nm is the lambda soap ( I»max ) of pure propanone. At the lambda soap of the spectra for solution 1 to 4, the wavelength is to be subtracted from the I»max of pure propanone of 276.1nm and added to the I»max of pure propanone 276.1nm to acquire the wavelength of the reflected side of the symmetric curve of pure propanone. Hence, from the optical density gotten, the optical density will be tantamount to the optical density of propanone at the I»max of mixture. Hence, taking the entire optical density of propanone and methylbenzene in the mixture to deduct the optical density of propanone in the mixture at 266.8nm ( lambda soap of mixture spectra ) to acquire the optical density of methylbenzene in the mixture.
Therefore, from the single optical density of propanone and methylbenzene, it can so be calculated for the partial force per unit area of propanone and methylbenzene in the mixture of solution.
The ground for utilizing the lambda soap as proportionate to the partial force per unit area of propanone and methylbenzene as it is to cut down the border of mistake where if taken at less intense wavelengths, the partial force per unit area will fluctuate dramatically for a little per centum of mistake such as switching of baseline.
Raoult ‘s Jurisprudence Secret Plan
It can be observed in the Raoult ‘s jurisprudence graph that there is a positive divergence of the experimental secret plan from the Raoult ‘s jurisprudence secret plan. The positive divergence as mentioned is consequence from the solutions holding vapour force per unit area higher than predicted that is caused by the intermolecular interaction of acetone-toluene to be weaker than the acetone-acetone and toluene-toluene interaction. This consequence is logical as the difference in mutual opposition between the constituents of these solutions can be easy determined where the propanone is polar and the methylbenzene is non-polar which is known and can be predicted that the consequence will organize positive divergence.
It can besides be observed that each constituent obeys Raoult ‘s jurisprudence in the bound as its mole fraction goes to one. This as the experimental partial force per unit area forms a multinomial curve of order two and approaches the Raoult ‘s jurisprudence criterion line drive secret plan as mole fraction goes to one..
Deviation From Raoult ‘s Jurisprudence
As mentioned, there is positive divergence from Raoult ‘s jurisprudence. This shows that the molecules of the acetone-toluene mixture prefer to be in the vapor stage than the liquid stage. There is higher partial force per unit area recorded than predicted by Raoult’s jurisprudence which implies that there are more vapour stage molecules than expected. This shows that the vapour stage is more favoured and therefore the acetone-acetone and toluene-toluene interactions are preferred over acetone-toluene interaction in the liquid stage. These acetone-acetone and toluene-toluene interactions are affected by the intermolecular forces which are traveling to be discussed in the undermentioned paragraph. It can besides be explained that propanone can non organize H bonds with methylbenzene as both molecules wants to get away into the vapour stage and therefore the vapour force per unit area is higher than that predicted from Raoult’s jurisprudence.
Intermolecular forces are defined as the attractive or abhorrent forces between molecular entities excepting those due to bond formation, electrostatic interaction between ions or ionic groups and impersonal molecules. In this experiment, propanone is polar while methylbenzene is non-polar. This will ensue in dipole-dipole induced forces that are formed between polar and non-polar constituent. Acetone-acetone interaction will be the dipole-dipole interaction while the interaction between toluene-toluene will be London forces. From the consequence of the Raoult ‘s jurisprudence secret plan, the positive divergence suggests that the acetone-toluene interaction is weaker than the acetone-acetone and toluene-toluene interaction. Hence, reading of the consequences shows that the induced dipole interaction is weaker than dipole-dipole and London force nowadays in the mixture of the solutions.
Besides, the boiling point of propanone ( 56.05oC ) [ 1 ] is lower than the boiling point of methylbenzene ( 110.63oC ) [ 1 ]. It is predicted for propanone to hold a lower boiling point due to its high vapor force per unit area which leads to high volatility. This coincides with the experimental information collected where the partial force per unit area of propanone is higher than the partial force per unit area of methylbenzene. Therefore, propanone will vaporize at a faster rate after interaction with methylbenzene as the interaction is non preferred, therefore coercing more acetone molecules into the vapour stage. Acetone prefers to be in the vapour stage as it is farther apart from the methylbenzene molecules and therefore less interaction with the methylbenzene molecules.
The liquid-vapour stage diagram shows clearly the portion the location of liquid, liquid-vapour and vapour stage.
The bubble point line that is constructed by plotting the entire partial force per unit area of both propanone and methylbenzene versus the liquid-phase mole fraction of methylbenzene indicates that the partial force per unit area at certain mole fraction of the methylbenzene will do the methylbenzene to boil and alterations from liquid to vapour stage one time passed the bubble point line.
The dew point line is that is constructed by plotting the entire partial force per unit area of both propanone and methylbenzene versus the vapour-phase mole fraction of methylbenzene, y methylbenzene, indicate that the partial force per unit area at certain mole fraction of methylbenzene will do the methylbenzene vapor to distill and alter back to H2O stage.
The stage diagram can be besides be used to happen out the vapour-phase mole fraction or the liquid-phase mole fraction of the mixture at a given entire force per unit area of both compounds. Therefore, it gives the composing of the mixture at a given force per unit area. From the stage diagram, it can besides be used to cipher back to happen the optical density value of unknown solution mixture of propanone and methylbenzene through happening the liquid-phase or vapour-phase mole fraction of propanone and methylbenzene with a known force per unit area.
The stage diagram besides show that by changing the entire force per unit area of the mixture can give rise to different composing of propanone and methylbenzene. This diagram matches the theory where at higher force per unit area, there will be higher composing of methylbenzene at liquid-phase than vapour-phase as at higher force per unit area, lower vapor force per unit area will be obtained and more liquid will be formed when the vapor molecule are forced back to liquid stage. On the other manus, at low force per unit area, the stage diagram gives a higher mole fraction at the vapor stage for methylbenzene as comparison to the mole fraction in the liquid-phase which matches the theory of hiving lower force per unit area that allow more molecules to travel into vapor stage which consequence in higher vapor force per unit area.
In the center part of the stage diagram consist of a two stage part of liquid and vapour stage. A point in this part will non be matching to the province of the system as the part consists of vapour stage and liquid stage. Therefore, a “ tie-line ” needs to pull in the part to cross the bubble point line and the dew point line boundary. The intersection of the tie line with the bubble point line on the liquid-phase of the part tells the composing of the liquid stage and the intersection of the tie line with the dew point line on the vapour side tells the composing of the vapour phase.
Possible Restriction or Possible Beginning of Mistake
First, a beginning of mistake will be the utilizing of pipetting for propanone where propanone are extremely volatile and will vaporize at fast velocity which will do pipetting mistake. It can be observed during the experiment that there are already bubbles organizing when pipetting the propanone which shows that little sum of propanone pipette out have already been evaporated. Hence, to counter to this job, it will be optimum to transport out the pipetting at a faster velocity and to hold consistence in the pipetting for all the solution.
Besides, it is of import to cover the cap of the volumetric flask and the cuvette one time solutions have been added into the volumetric flask or the cotton in the cuvette every bit rapidly as possible. This is of import as propanone is extremely volatile and will be easy vaporize into the environment which will do lesser concentration of propanone in the cuvette and consequence in lesser propanone optical density and impact the truth of consequence. Hence, it can be propose a cuvette with a stopper top should be used alternatively of an unfastened top cuvette to forestall the vapor from get awaying.
It is besides ascertained that during the experiment when excessively much force per unit area is applied to the cap of the cuvette, condensation will happen. This is because the high external force per unit area will cut down the vapor force per unit area in the cuvette and coerce the vapour stage of the mixture of solution back into liquid stage which condense and from H2O droplet in the cuvette. It is besides similar when the cotton was excessively wet with solution and solution trickle into the cuvette. The spectrum desired is that of the vapour force per unit area and non that of the liquid stage, so it is of import that the Windowss of the cuvette remain dry. Although cotton, being hydrophilic, could supress the vapour force per unit area of the more polar liquid constituent, this consequence is believed to be little when the cotton is exhaustively saturated with liquid. When these phenomenon happen, the droplet have to be flush dry with air and new cotton will hold to re-insert back into cuvette for adding of the solution. This is because the solution droplet will impede the ultraviolet-visible visible radiation from go throughing through the cuvette and will absorb more visible radiation than the vapor stage which will demo inaccurate consequence of the spectra.
For this experiment, vitreous silica cuvettes are used as the vitreous silica cuvette will non absorb Ultraviolet-visible radiation and will non interfere with the optical density of propanone or methylbenzene. It will be crystalline to the UV -VIS visible radiation and therefore, the optical density of propanone and methylbenzene is non inclusive of the optical density of the cuvette and hence, the consequence gotten will be accurate.
The baseline is of import for this experiment as it will find the optical density of the vapor and minute alterations of baseline will take to great border of mistake despite utilizing lambda soap as optical density of the propanone and methylbenzene. It is of import to set two cuvettes with the crystalline side confronting the beam and make every bit small perturbation to the surface of the cuvette as possible to retain consistency baseline. It is suggested to pass over the crystalline side every clip to guarantee best transparence of the vitreous silica cuvette.
Last, it is of import to observe that more information points will be needed for guaranting truth and preciseness of the consequence as volatility of propanone is high and it is of high chance of mistake in vaporizing the propanone and consequence in lower partial force per unit area of propanone than expected. Repeating the experiment several times can besides assist to cut down such mistake and better consistence.
In decision, this experiment have studied the consequence of Raoult ‘s jurisprudence and the binary liquid-vapour stage diagram of propanone and methylbenzene which shows positive divergence from Raoult ‘s jurisprudence which farther enhanced the fact of merely ideal solution obey Raoult ‘s jurisprudence.
