Crude oil contains many different compounds that are of vital importance to our everyday lives, such as gasoline, kerosene, butane, and motor oil. Before they can be used, however, they need to be separated from each other. Students will get a hands-on look at this process works by performing a fractional distillation on a simulated oil mixture. The students will explore concepts such as boiling and condensation points, conservation of matter, and intermolecular forces. This kit corresponds to Next Generation Science Standards HS-PS1-3, -5, and -7, as well as MS-PS1-1, -2, and -5. Cross cutting concepts include patterns and energy & matter. Each kit comes with enough material for 15 groups of students, and includes teacher's manual, student study guide copymasters, and material safety data sheets (MSDS).

What's in the box?

  • 1 bottle simulated crude oil (450mL)
  • 15 rubber stoppers
  • 30 disposable cups
