IR Testing, Solvent Extraction, Oil-Water Extractions and Laboratory Applications
Halogenated solvents are used for Extractions and various laboratory processes because the molecules are synthetically produced; which provides a higher level of purity. They have long retention times, which makes them distiguishable from hydrocarbons, and they are nonflammable. Further, halocarbons are hydrophobic, therefore allowing for the seperation of hydrocarbons from aqueous samples.
Facilities that used AK-225 for applications such as these should evaluate:
