IMMISCIBLE LIQUIDS IN A DENSITY COLUMN<br />
Hexane, Water and Carbon Tetrachloride<br />
Nonpolar compounds hexane (C6H14) and carbon tetrachloride (CCl4) are not miscible in polar water. CCl4, tinted by iodine, the densest is on the bottom  of the test tube & separated from the tinted C6H14, the least dense by the layer of water.
