Are open-air distillation and simple distillation the same?

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    There really is no problem for this. I am just writing my procedure for orgo lab and I haven't dont any distillation before. I tried googling "open-air" distillation to see if it was equivalent to simple distillation, but I can't seem to get a straight answer.

    2. Relevant equations

    n/a

    3. The attempt at a solution
    n/a

    I don’t recall ever specifically using the phrase “open air distillation” (or “simple distillation,” for that matter), but I’m assuming it is in contrast to, e.g., vacuum distillation or distillation under an inert atmosphere.
