A pure substance is a single element or compound not mixed with any other substance. Pure substances have specific melting and boiling temperatures. These can be used to distinguish pure substances from mixtures. A formulation is a mixture that has been designed as a useful product. Formulations are made by mixing the components in carefully measured quantities to ensure that the product has the required properties.
