Separation Techniques

What are Separation Techniques?

This post will introduce some separation techniques and applications for Prelim Chemistry. A separation technique is a way to separate different components of a mixture based on physical properties.

Topic: Properties of Matter

  • Explore homogeneous mixtures and heterogeneous mixtures through practical investigations:
    • Using separation techniques based on physical properties
    • Calculating percentage composition by weight of component elements and/or compounds


Introduction to Separation Techniques

Here is an introductory video to explore why we separate mixtures and what we look for when deciding which separation techniques to use.
