SOLVENT SCREENING METHODS
SOLVENT SCREENING METHODSA variety of methods may be used to estimate solvent properties as an aid to identifying useful solvents for a new application. Many of these methods focus on thermodynamic properties; a favorable partition ratio and low mutual solubility often are necessary for an economical extraction process, so ranking candidates according to thermodynamic properties provides a useful initial screen of the more promising candidates. Keep in mind, however, that other factors also must be taken into account when selecting a solvent, as discussed in Desirable Solvent Properties under Introduction and Overview. When using the following methods, also note that the level of uncertainty may be fairly high. The uncertainty depends upon how closely the chemical system of interest resemb…
