Summary: This study comprises the synthesis of new calix [4] arene thioether derivative (3), its corresponding oligomer (5) and copolymers (6), which are a selective extractant for toxic metal cations and anions and liquid-liquid and solid-liquid extractions of these compounds.
Thioacetamide chemically immobilized on silica gel as a solid extractant for the extraction and preconcentration of Cu(II) and Cd(II).
Specifically, the ratio at which Nd and Dy move to the extractant change as the pH level of the acid increases.
Tincture is a transparent liquid alcohol or spirit extraction from plant raw materials obtained without heating or removing the extractant.
The contribution of these different pools to the P extracted differs due to differences in pH and chemical composition of the extractant (Beegle 2005).
NaCl is also used to enhance flavor and as a protein extractant in processed meat (Aguilera and Karel, 1997; Munasinghe et al.
Among the factors that should be considered regarding mineral dissolution are the extractant solution's effect on the rate of dissolution, solution pH, ionic strength, concentrations of individual elements, temperature, and reactive mineral surface (Lasaga, Soler, Ganor, Burch, & Nagy 1994).
The P extractant used in the soil test should be compatible to soil properties as the P detached during soil extraction is dependent upon the type of extractant used and the nature of P complexes.
