What Is Refluxing in Organic Chemistry?

Answer

In organic chemistry, refluxing refers to a technique that allows you to boil a liquid for a long period of time without the liquid boiling dry. This is done by heating the liquid in a special condenser and keeping the heat at a certain temperature. During heating, the liquid will condense, but run back down into the condenser to avoid boiling dry.
