How to seperate a mixture of salt and sugar?

Asked by Shiladitya Biswas 29th July 2012, 2:54 PM

Since sugar is organic compound, it is soluable in organic solvents like alcohol. Salt is insoluable in alcohol.

Add alcohol to the mixture, filter out the salt, then evaporate the alcohol and the sugar will be left.
