Preliminary Requirements

Chemical samples requiring extraction are composed of the compound of interest and the sample matrix, which may contain interfering species. Prior to choosing an extraction method, knowledge must be gained about the structure (including functional group arrangement), molecular mass, polarity, solubility, pKa, and other physical properties of both the species of interest and potential interfering compounds. Constraints specific to the sample and the solvent must be considered, and the resulting concentration and desired degree of purification must be taken into account. This section discusses these preliminary considerations. Solvent-specific considerations and the roles of solute solubility, partitioning, and diffusion will subsequently be addressed.

Global warming is a huge problem which will significantly affect every country in the world. Many people all over the world are trying to do whatever they can to help combat the effects of global warming. One of the ways that people can fight global warming is to reduce their dependence on non-renewable energy sources like oil and petroleum based products.
