I produced ethyl acetate with a boiling point of 73 degrees celsius using reflux and distillation, the true boiling point of ethyl acetate is 77.1 degrees Celsius. Impurities whose volatility is lower than ethyl acetate will increase Bp. I do not understand why my Bp has decreased can anyone help?
Not sure if this is on the thread. Sorry is it is not.
