When should one use a rotary evaporator or distillation in an experiment?
Many people think that evaporation and distillation are the same, but actually there are some differences between evaporation and distillation. For example, evaporation can be more accurate than distillation. Besides, evaporation has a higher efficiency, which means evaporation can save you more time. Evaporation is more convenient than distillation to separate sophisticated compound. Therefore, in chemical experiments, people use evaporation more than distillation.
What is the primary advantage of using a rotary evaporator over distillation
The primary advantage of using a rotary evaporator over distillation is that rotary evaporator can provide more accuracy and efficiency. Rotary evaporator is always used in industrial field, especially some large-scale factory. So a large mount of materials are always processed.
Distillation can be less accurate and less efficient than rotary evaporator. Then in a large mount of materials, this difference can be bigger. The more materials you need to process, the more accuracy and efficiency difference there will be. Therefore, people always choose rotary evaporator to get materials evaporated instead of using distillation.
Therefore, rotary evaporator is more widely used than distillation because its efficiency and accuracy. Besides industrial field, rotary evaporator is also widely used in other fields such as chemical labs, food-making field, biological pharmaceutical field and so on.
Can rotary evaporator remove water
Rotary evaporator is widely used in removing water from materials, which is to concentrate substances. Removing water by rotary evaporator is commonly used in kitchen, for example, concentrate fruit juice, which is to remove water from fruit juice. Besides, there are other examples of removing water from substances.
