Helpful Definitions

Distillation: the separation of liquids by virtue of their difference in boiling points. The process consists of boiling the liquid mixture and condensing and collecting the vapour. It is used to purify liquids and to separate liquid mixtures into its constituent components. It is the most widely used method for the separation of miscible liquids and takes place in a distillation column.
