What liquid is more volatile between ethanol methanol acetone dichloromethane and water?
Ethanol boiling point: 78.37 °C
Methanol Boiling point: 64.7 °C
Acetone Boiling point: 56 to 57 °C
dichloromethane Boiling Point: 39.8-40.0°C
Water Boiling Point: 100°C
dichloromethane more volatile than the others
Between ethanol and methanol, ethanol is more volatile because of its lower molecular weight and boiling point. Methanol is considered to be extremely toxic. Exposure to even small amounts have been known to cause blindness. Methanol is quite volatile and is five times more toxic than any other alternative fuels.
Acetone is an organic compound belonging to a class of substances called ketones. It is a volatile, highly flammable liquid with toxic vapors. It is soluble in water but does not have andy notable effect on pH. Acids cover a wide variety of organic and inorganic compounds. The common characteristic is that an acid will generally release hydrogen ions (H+) in water or will donate a hydrogen ion to another molecule or ion. In water…
Non volatile retains its information even if the power is disconnected. ..Volatile loses the stored information/settings if power is lost. Think of it this way...if you remove the battery in your car you may lose the radio station settings and will have to reset the radio stations. That is an example of volatile memory. Non Volatile does not require a maintained power supply.
I am not aware of any direct way of producing methanol from methane. The only two ways I know that you can make methanol is by reacting carbon monoxide with hydrogen or by the pyrolysis of wood. Almost all the methanol made today is produced by the Syngas method. In it, methane is converted to carbon monoxide and hydrogen, which are then formed into methanol. Researchers are working on a catalyst to directly convert methane…
