The organism is classified by the World Health Organization and the International agency for Research on Cancer as a class 1 carcinogen [ 3 ].
If the target compound being separated is a protein or enzyme, it is possible to incorporate a ligand to the target into one of the polymer phases.
This section does not cite any sources. These calculations demonstrate that using multiple portions of a solvent maximizes the extractive power of the solvent. Since polymer—salt systems demix readily they are easier to use.
Centrifugal extractors minimize the solvent in the process, optimize the product load in the solvent and extract the aqueous phase completely. The system could then be used by the food industry to isolate or eliminate particular flavors. However, dextran is relatively expensive, and research has been exploring using less expensive polysaccharides to generate the heavy phase.
How much hyoscyamine would be extracted into the diethyl ether layer in this process? The efficiency of methanol in the extraction of phytochemicals has been reported in other studies [ 132122 ].
These compounds are often flavorants or odorants.
