Sodium Chloride Separation from Seawater
« on: September 11, 2018, 11:05:26 AM »
What are the methods currently used to separate pure NaCl from seawater? I'm asking the question here because it's a pre-lab problem I'm kind of having for an inorganic chem class.

One method should be very very obvious.

Well I've been seeing evaporation but I was wondering aren't there so many ions dissolved in seawater, and won't evaporation just give us sodium chloride along with the other salts?
