• Fractional Distillation:
o Process to separate volatile components of a mixture.
o Vapor phase enriched in more volatile component:
As vapor condenses, evaporates again, achieve greater enrichment.
Ideally, separate and collect pure components.
• Solutions of Volatile Components:
o For mixtures containing more than one volatile component:
Partial pressure of each volatile component contributes to total
vapor pressure of solution.
