Ether Extraction Animation

This interactive simulation explores the process of extracting three times with ether, as one might do for a typical reaction work-up.  To help achieve the student learning outcomes, an accompanying worksheet has been developed.

After using the simulation, students will be able to sketch and label the apparatus used, describe the theory of extraction and partitioning, explain the reason for doing multiple extractions, provide a step-by-step extraction procedure, and explain the purpose of each step taken once the extraction is complete (e.g., wash, dry, remove ether).  A fully accessible version is available with the click of a button.
