- pour the mixture in a Stoppered separating funnel; the denser liquid (water) will go below and hexane will be above.
- open the tap in the separating funnel very little and let the water run into a container.
- monitor it and turn off the tap once the water has run into the container; this will leave hexane in the funnel and the water in the container. 0026 December 2010
