1. Use the following gas chromatogram of a mixture of dioxane and cyclohexane eluted on a1. Use the following gas chromatogram of a mixture of dioxane and cyclohexane eluted on a

non-polar column to answer the following two questions.non-polar column to answer the following two questions.

a. What is the identity of the substance labeled peak A? Expa. What is the identity of the substance labeled peak A? Explain how you deduced this.lain how you deduced this.

peak A = dioxane, peak A = dioxane,

explanation: since it is more polar and explanation: since it is more polar and thus will elute early on a nonpolar stationary phasethus will elute early on a nonpolar stationary phase

b. The  b. The area measured area measured for peak for peak A is A is 2 c2 cmm
