Separatory Funnel - Emulsions

Emulsions

Emulsions can be formed while liquids are being mixed in the separatory funnel. This can occur when small droplets are suspended in an aqueous solution. If an emulsion is formed, try to slowly swirl the solution in the separatory funnel. If the emulsion is not eliminated, then try adding a small amount of saturated aqueous sodium chloride solution.
