The ‘salting out’ effect: investigating the influence of both the nature and concentration of salt on the partition coefficient of butan-1,4-dioic acid
Issue 368 | Page 77 | Published Mar 2018
This activity describes how students can use acid–base titrimetry to investigate how adding salt to the aqueous phase may change the value of the partition coefficient of an organic acid.
