Question

Scenario: you are working in a pharmaceutical chemistry laboratory and are responsible for synthesizing Valproate,

an active compound used to treat both epilepsy and migraine headaches. Your labmate accidentally mixed your sample with their reaction which contained both Methamphetamine and Anthraquinone. You decide that a separation by liquid-liquid extraction is the most efficient method to recover your product. You begin by dissolving the solid mixture in methylene chloride.

Using a flow chart show ALL STEPS needed to separate and isolate all of the compounds using liquid-liquid extraction. List the concentrations of all acids and bases used, show the structures of all compounds in every step, and show the charges on any ionic compounds in each step and indicate all phases. [5 Marks]
