.102 g pure caffeine is added to .1 mL methylene chloride and .1 mL water, shaken and allowed to separate. the water is removed and the remaining liquid is mixed with sodium sulfate. This is dry filtered with an additional .5 mL water into a flask. The remaining liquid is heated, leaving the solid behind. What is the caffeine's theoretical yield? Density of CH2Cl2 is 1.3255.
Also, I started by finding by the KD = solubility in organic solvent (g/100mL) / solubility of water (g/100 mL) = (.102g/.1)/(.102/.1) = 1, please let me know if this is also correct.
