The simplest method would be fractional distillation: if you have a mixture of miscible liquids with different boiling points, as is the case in your question, then you can heat them slowly. When the boiling point of the most volatile compound in the mixture is reached, it begins to boil and the temperature does not increase until it has all boiled off. The ...

Important information before understanding the reason for steric inhibition of resonance and the ortho effect In general, resonance stabilizes a molecule. But in the case of carboxylic acids, the conjugate base (anion after losing $\ce{H+}$) there are two equivalent resonance structures. Take the example of acetic acid, $\ce{CH3COOH}$, and thus acetate ion, ...
