...have you tried working with each product solubility or its boiling point....sometimes the basic physical properties are forgotten and fall into the unknown.....so look it up and find their differences and exploit them.....java

I have done a friedel craft's acylation reaction to 4-chloro phenol using benzoyl chloride. Now my reaction mixture contains o-acylated product and probably unreacted phenol. both of which contain phenolic "OH" group. Now how can I separate the unreacted phenol from the acylated product. I doubt whether base extraction can do it because both the components phenol and its acylated product have phenolic "OH". Is there any other way such that I can remove the unreacted phenol and get the pure acylated product?
