I suggest starting with the M+2 peak at m/z 173.

Calcium Chloride and Magnesium are both from Kent. I have a grounding probe in the sump and a circuit breaker for the whole system. Thanks for your interest jdieck. Its a tough one

Citizen Chemist / Re: Question about yellow plastic chemistry
« Last post by Borek on Yesterday at 07:48:11 AM »
This can be a bit tricky, as often a lot depends on some unpredictable factors - so while I do like the systematic approach and I do agree trying to understand what is really the mechanism of the retrobrite can help in optimizing the process, in the end it can turn out practice/experiment are the only way of finding the best procedure, no matter what the theory says.

Any suggestions for the ratio of Sodium percarb to TEAD?

Stoichiometry would be a reasonable starting point, wouldn't it?

Yes, I use the slides that the teacher gave us, but I don't understand them very well, and a book. I'll keep working on it, thank you.

Organic Chemistry Forum / Re: Trans vs cis stillbene
« Last post by sharbeldam on Yesterday at 07:21:21 AM »
So I get the fact now that cis is more polar, but my inquiry that remains in this synthesis.
if you allow me though, in a specific step of this lab, we get trans/cis isomers and the side product TPPO, so basically two solids and a liquid (cis isomer), to get the cis isomer, can we just used filtration to get the liquid which is the cis isomer, and then we are left with two solids, one is polar and the second is not which is easy to seperate because of the difference in polarity?

If the boronate is unstable it offcourse matters but if stable the new product will always have the new carbon-carbon bond in the same place as the boron-carbon bond in the boronic ester?

I agree, I'll repeat the extraction and see if the problem persists.

Thanks for your remarks

Thanks for your response, actually I do not believe that it is a tara problem (I checked the balance a few times), even though, I made the first measurement with porcelain pieces inside the flask, obviously, I left them out of the equation for measurement and it was something like this:

Mass of the extract from round flask: 93.31 g
Mass of the extract after being transferred: 77.49 g

so I am not certain at all if it is just an evaporation issue
Unless you live somewhere exceptionally hot, 25 mL PE is not going to evaporate out of the mouth of a flask in just a few minutes. On a large surface? Sure, but not a flask. Sounds like either a human error or a technical error with the scale. I'd repeat the extraction (being very careful to do everything right) and see if the same problem arises.
