Is water and methyl alcohol miscible or immiscible?
completely miscible with each other
Miscible means that the two liquids will mix in all proportions to form a homogeneous solution so that you can no longer see that there were two liquids (e.g. alcohol and water) The opposite is immiscible which is where two liquids will not mix together and separate out into two layers (e.g. oil and water are immiscible). Miscible refers to liquids that can be mixed in all proportions. Answers.com
Two materials are said to be miscible if when combined they will form a homogeneous mixture. Immiscible refers to inability to mix two liquids or even two solids. Gases are always miscible. Oil and water are immiscible and, if mixed, separate into two different phases, the oil phase and the water phase.
Alcohols are a family of organic compounds characterized by a hydroxyl group (-OH). There are many different alcohols, and some are miscible in water while others are not. Low molecular weight alcohols having one carbon (methanol), two carbons (ethanol), and three carbons (n-propanol and isopropanol) are miscible in water, as is tert-butanol. Less branched butanols and alcohols having five or more carbons behave more like hydrocarbons and are immiscible in water.
Miscible/Immiscible when we say that a substance is miscible it means at it mix with whatever it is suppose to mix with and forms a homogenous mixture. when we say homogenous mixture you can see it as one not two different substance though they are a mixture. just like alcohol and water or coconut milk and milk. with water there are many substances that can blend to it... examples alcohol, vinegar, (well it is right…
Miscible and immiscible are you to describe what happens when substances (usually liquids) are mixed together. If 2 layers are formed, like when oil is mixed with water, then the oil would be described as immiscible in water as it does not form a solution. If the two substances mix together and no layers are formed, like when orange squash is mixed with water, the we would say the orange squash is miscible in water…
If two liquids are miscible, it means they are capable of being mixed together in all proportions. For example, water and ethanol are miscible as they mix together. If two liquids are immiscible, it means that they don't mix together and they don't form a solution in some proportion. For example, water is immiscible with oil.
I'm assuming you mean methyl alcohol (also called methanol)? Methanol is miscible in both polar (ex water) and non polar (ex dichloromethane or ethyl acetate) solvents. You would get no phase separation. For an extraction to work, you muse use two non-miscible solvents to create two layers (such as water + ethyl acetate).
Acetone is dimethyl ketone. It has two methyl groups (-CH3) attached to a central carbonyl group (-C=O). The methyl groups are nonpolar, allowing it to be miscible with other nonpolar substances (such as oils). The carbonyl group is polar (due to the dipole moment exerted by the oxygen atom on the carbon), allowing it to be miscible in other polar substances (such as water).
