with Matthias Roth

24.02.2017 3-6pm

Distillation is a simple chemical process of separating the component substances from a liquid mixture by selective evaporation and condensation. The oldest described distillation equipment dates from about 5500 b.c. which was a pot with top on which sponges where mounted and just squeezed after boiling. Common uses of Distillation are extracting gasoline from petroleum and producing Ethanol. On this we will focus in this workshop.
