In his Meteorologica, Aristotle wrote that “Salt water when it turns into vapour becomes sweet and the vapour does not form salt water again when it condenses” (Forbes , p. ). The process of boiling a liquid and condensing and collecting the vapour. The liquid collected is the distillate. It is used to purify liquids and to separate liquid mixtures (see fractional distillation; steam distillation). See also destructive distillation; extractive distillation.

  Distillation, process involving the conversion of a liquid into vapour that is subsequently condensed back to liquid form. It is exemplified at its simplest when steam from a kettle becomes deposited as drops of distilled water on a cold lation is used to separate liquids from nonvolatile solids, as in the separation of alcoholic liquors from fermented materials, or in the.
