Determination of the Melting Points

  • To obtain the melting points of organic compound,
  • To observe melting behavior of pure solids,
  • To examine the factors that affect the melting point.




In this experiment, we are going to study the melting points in organic chemistry. The melting point of a compound is the temperature at which the solid phase transitions into the liquid phase at a standard pressure of 1 atmosphere. By means of this experiment, the melting point of naphthalene and urea will be determined observing the melting range of these compound, and the factors that affecting the melting point will be evaluated at the end of the experiment.
