If a liquid compound decomposes

Question:

If a liquid compound decomposes at its boiling point, which method(s) can you choose for its purification. It is known that the compound is stable at low pressure, steam volatile and insoluble in water.

Solution:

As the liquid compound decomposes at its boiling point which means that the compound is heat-sensitive, hence we use “Steam distillation” for its purification. It is done for temperature-sensitive material.
