Separatory Funnel


I was using separatory funnel with solvent and i was wondering if there was a way to accellerate the separation processus, cause it's taking age and i hate waiting...any idea?

What are you trying to separate? I'm not sure I quite understand what exactly the problem is you're having.

What's slowing down the separation? I've never had troubles with separation taking forever in a separation funnel, it usually goes fast.

Damn, xoo1246 was faster. ;)
Yes, salt it out with simple table salt or better dishwasher regeneration salt whats much cleaner than what we eat.

But salting out does not work with density but more with a kind of taking up the free places together with emulsion breaking.

Anyway, works fine.
You should distill the lighter gas later as it probably contains emulsion building substances/oiles. These are often mixed to gasolines and else for equipment protection.

...Politics then reigned in Rome. She had her two sisters, Deceit and Greed, as ministers. Under their command, Ignorance, Fanaticism and Fury were seen to prevail in Europe. They brought wretchedness everywhere they went. Reason hid in the bottom of a well, along with her daughter, Truth. No one knew where this well was. If anyone had guessed, he would have gone down into it to cut the throats of mother and daughter.

-Voltaire, Eloge historique de la Raison, 1775

Throughout the world ... we use the word \'politics\' to describe the process so well: \'Poli\' in Latin meaning \'many\' and \'tics\' meaning \'blood****ing creatures\'.
