The distribution coefficient of peroxyfluoro-analine, PFA, distributed between water and diethyl ether at 25°C is 0.12 mass fraction in the water phase per mass fraction in the diethyl ether phase. Twenty grams of pure diethyl ether is added to 10.00 g of an aqueous solution containing 1.0 wt% PFA, and the resulting blend is allowed to equilibrate. How much PFA transfers to the diethyl ether phase, assuming diethyl ether and water are immiscible?
The question belongs to Chemistry and it discusses about calculating the PFA transfers to diethyl ether phase assuming diethyl ether and water are immiscible. This has been discussed in the solution detail.
