at normal atmospheric pressure methanol boils at around 67 degrees (C) and water boils at 100 degrees .. so I guess the easiest way would be by simply evaporating the methanol at a temperature around 80 degrees .. be careful though and take all the ness. safety precautions .. methanol is VERY poisonous and flammable .. so better do it in gas cabin or in an open room with good ventilation .. oh and do not heat the mixture directly .. you should heat it in a water bath .. all the best

Why does methonal dissolve in methanol and not water?

There's no such thing as "methonal." There is "methanol," which easily dissolves into water.

Can water float in methanol?

No. Methanol is less dense than water, so the opposite would happen: the methanol would float on the water. However, since methanol is fully soluble in water, it would not be long before the two became fully mixed.

Is water more polar than methanol?

yes. Water is more polar than methanol. That is the reason why we always use methanol to extract many organic compounds. they could be better (more quickly) dissolved in methanol than in water.
