Mar 4, 2017

#### Answer:

$\text{n-heptane}$ $\equiv$ ${\text{H"_3"CCH"_2"CH"_2"CH"_2"CH"_2"CH"_2"CH}}_{3}$

#### Explanation:

Out of the bottle and dried over molten sodium, I found this one of the most useful solvent to use (of course this depends on the chemistry you do). Its normal boiling point is $98$ ""^@C. The petroleum ethers that you buy are usually lousy with olefins.
