# Separating 2 chemicals [closed]

Is it possible to separate two chemicals with slightly different melting points? Can this be done with the use of a lab freezer? As MP is -44 and The other is -61 - -59 °C.

Will it solidify these two substances separately? Or each becoming a separate layer?

However, your question per se is far too general to be answered. Some substances can be more easily separated than others. For example, an attempt to separate $\ce{DHO}$ and $\ce{D2O}$ from $\ce{H2O}$ did not succeed under the test conditions.
