Hint: Purification of mercury is done by fractional distillation.
A. Coloured bands are observed in chromatography.
B. Impure metal is converted to a volatile complex by using Mond’s process.
C. Purification of Ge and Si is purified by the zone refining method. This method is very useful for producing semiconductors and
other metals of very high purity, e.g., germanium, silicon, boron, gallium and indium.
D. Purification of mercury is done by fractional distillation. This is very useful for low boiling metals like zinc and mercury.
The impure metal is evaporated to obtain the pure metal as distillate.
