CH 241F EXPERIMENT #1, WEEK 1 PRELAB 1. Look up the structures (not just the molecular formulas), melting points and solubility characteristics of 9H-fluorene and 9-fluorenone.
9-H fluorene, mp 116-1170C soluble in glacial acetic acid, CS2, ether, benzene and hot alcohol
9- fluorenone, mp 830C soluble in alcohol, ether, acetone and benzene
2. Look up the density and boiling point of dichloromethane. The boiling point is 39-400C and its density is approximately 1.32 g/mL.
