I am wondering if this would work:I need to sublimate compound 1

    I am wondering if this would work:

    I need to sublimate compound 1 (mp 175-177 C) from compound 2 (206-208 C) at 120 C at atmospheric pressure. Crystals are found and the solids melting point is 150-160 C.

    Could anyone help me? I am not completely clear.

    Virtually impossible to tell without structure or description of your compound. It is mostly likely organic with a low MP like those. You haven't tried recrystallization, titruation, or chromatography first?
