Removing water from Solvents
There are various ways of removing water and other impurities from a solution. This can become a major task once the used reagents are also sensitive towards water e.g. Grignard reagents or enolates. If water is one of the products, it also has a detrimental effect on the yield and/or reaction rate. In those cases, drying agents like activated alumina¹, calcium hydride (CaH2), sodium metal (in combination with benzophenone which forms a dark blue ketyl radical), lithium aluminum hydride (LiAlH4) or phosphorous pentoxide (P4O10) are used to chemically destroy the water. The drying agents commonly used in the organic laboratories are calcium chloride (CaCl2), sodium sulfate (Na2SO4) Calcium sulfate (CaSO 4, as Drierite (R)) and magnesium sulfate (MgSO4), all in their anhydrous form. Listed below are the drying agents that are commonly used.Organic liquids are considered to be wet if they contain water. Realize that the organic liquid will still be a liquid after it is dried. Activated alumina ¹ is a very porous form of aluminum oxide of high surface area which adsorbs liquids and gases without any change in form. Activated alumina will not soften or disintegrate when immersed in liquids. Activated alumina may be regenerated to its original adsorption efficiency by heating to a temperature between (177-316°C). Reconditioning of mineral oils like transformer or insulating oils. Removal of oil vapor mist from compressed air. Drying of organic liquids to a moisture level of 10 ppm or below. Drying of various liquids such as Benzene, Carbon, Tetrachloride, Chlorobenzene, Ethyl Acetate, Transformer oil, Vegetable oils etc.
