Abstract

The variation in solvent composition of a mixed solvent used in Soxhlet extraction of sediments has apparently often been overlooked. Owing to azeotropic distillation of the solvent introduced into the apparatus, care must be taken to determine the composition of the solvent actually doing the extracting.
