Maroto, J. A.; Quesada-Perez, M.; Ortiz-Hernandez, A. J. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2010
A new laboratory procedure for the evaluation of the mean molecular weight (mean relative molecular mass) of petroleum oils with high accuracy is described. The density and dynamic viscosity of three commercial petroleum oils are measured at different temperatures. These experimental data are used to calculate the kinematic viscosity as a function…

Warnke, Molly M.; Erickson, Angela E.; Smith, Eugene T. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2005
A forensic project is described that is suitable for an undergraduate instrumental methods lab. Accelerants commonly used by arsonists are analyzed by static headspace enrichment followed by gas chromatography. The conditions used for headspace enrichment (e.g., time and temperature) are known to influence the distribution of hydrocarbons…
