Diethyl ether and heptane extraction from Starter Fluid

Diethyl ether and heptane extraction from Starter Fluid
First, spray the car starter fluid into a flask. Setup a fractional distillation apparatus around the flask but cool the condenser with ice water. Diethyl ether boils at 34.6 degrees Celsius so a room temperature condenser wouldn't be as efficient as an ice temperature condenser. Now start with very light heating and gradually ramp up until diethyl ether starts to distill at 34 celsius or so. Go slowly at first as diethyl ether boils very easily. You'll need to gradually increase the temperature to keep the flow constant. Eventually there will be a spike in distillate temperature as the ether finishes distilling so stop the heating if it passes 70 celsius. The collected product diethyl ether while the residue should be other aliphatic solvents. Most starter fluids contain heptane in addition to ether.

Diethyl ether is useful for grignard reactions and heptane is useful as a general purpose non-reactive non-polar solvent.​

Bro please can you explain it with more details involved,so i can really render these words into pictures and i can apply it extracting ether so i can cook 100% pure cocaine HCL!!!!
🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏😍😍😍😍♥️♥️♥️♥️

Hello, there is video tutorial. What cocaine do you wanna synthesize? lol
 
Watching this brought a question to my mind.
1. I've always used ice water in my condenser. Aside from several trays of ice cubes I have an ice cube maker and keep about a dozen bottles of drinking water frozen to add to the tank. Is there a scenario where room temperature condenser water is preferable?
