The term molecular distillation has been applied to that type of distillation where there is no return of escaping molecules to the evaporating surface. This is accomplished by operating with high boiling (low vapour pressure) liquids under such high vacuum that the mean free path of the escaping molecules is of the order of the distance between the surface of the evaporating liquid and the cooled condensing surface of the still.
