Is fluorene polar or nonpolar?
It turns out that carbon and hydrogen don't have significantly different electronegativity values. Basically, that means that in our fluorene molecule the electrons (in the form of the covalent bonds) are being shared equally among all atoms. This makes fluorene a non-polar molecule.
A mixture of fluorene, fluorenone and fluorenol is examined by TLC and gives the following Rf values: 0.3, 0.5, 0.8. -0.8 is fluorene, 0.5 is fluorenone, 0.3 is fluorenol. -Fluorenol is an alcohol, so it is more polar than the ketone fluorenone, giving it a lower Rf value.
- The presence of these hydroxyl groups renders the surface of silica gel highly polar. Thus, polar functionality in the organic analyte interacts strongly with the surface of the gel particle and nonpolar functionality interact only weakly.
- Hexane is just hydrogens and carbons and there isn't much charge imbalance. The carbon-hydrogen bonds aren't very polarized. Because of that lack of charge imbalance, the molecule is non-polar.
- Vinegar is composed of acetic acid and water, which are polar compounds. In a polar molecule, one or a group of atoms have a stronger pull on the electrons in the molecule. Oil, on the other hand, is a type of lipid, which is a nonpolar compound.
Water is very polar and therefore absorbs very strongly on the polar stationary phase (alumina). Since benzil is less polar than benzoin, a polar solvent is used as solvent for the recrystallization. Benzil is less soluble in cold 95 % ethanol than benzoin causing the benzil to precipitate first.
- The primary reason benzoic acid dissolves only slightly or poorly in cold water is that, because of polar carboxylic group, the bulk amount of the benzoic acid molecule is non-polar. It is only the carboxylic group that is polar.
- Benzophenone, which is largely nonpolar, but possesses a polar carbonyl group, was found to be partially soluble in methyl alcohol and hexane but insoluble in water. Malonic acid, a polar molecule that is also able to ionize, was found to be soluble in water and methyl alcohol but insoluble in hexane.
- benzene ring is non polar and water is a polar solvent. The lone pair on oxygen atom of benzaldehyde is completely involved in conjugation making it less available to form hydrogen bonding with water.where as lone pair on oxygen atom of acetone is readily available for hydrogen bonding and makes it more water soluble.
Column Chromatography is a preparative technique used to purify compounds depending on their polarity or hydrophobicity. In column chromatography, a mixture of molecules is separated based on their differentials partitioning between a mobile phase and a stationary phase.
- Types of chromatography
- Column chromatography.
- Ion-exchange chromatography.
- Gel-permeation (molecular sieve) chromatography.
- Affinity chromatography.
- Paper chromatography.
- Thin-layer chromatography.
- Gas chromatography.
- Dye-ligand chromatography.
- Polar compounds will interact with the silica more strongly than non-polar ones so will come off the column, or elute, after non-polar compounds. When a sample contains compounds with similar polarity, the separation between then can be small and recovering all of your clean sample can become a challenge.
