Basic Chemistry: Mixtures

Mixtures are a "mix" of 2 or more substances that are not chemically bonded, the properties of a mixture are simply a combination of the properties of the substances it contains.

A mixture does not have any unique properties of its own.

The more prevalent a substance is in a mixture the more prevalent its properties will be. The separation of mixture components is a common practice in chemistry. Depending on the mixture, there are various separation techniques that are used.

Some commonly used separation techniques are paper chromatography, centrifugation, distillation, and filtration.

Paper chromatography is used to separate a mixture containing various colored liquids with different molecular structures. Centrifugation is the process of spinning a liquid mixture to separate out suspended solids. Distillation is a common separation technique used to separate a mixture consisting of liquids with different boiling points.Filtration is a technique used to separate a mixture containing a liquid and a solid.
