What is extraction? Extraction is the transfer of a solute from one liquid phase to another. A significant method that is based on relative solubility of an analyte in two immiscible liquids. It is used to (a) remove interference , (b) isolate or concentrate the desired species prior to analysis, and (c) produce measurable form of a species. The basic theory of extraction is applicable to chromatography. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vcwfhDhLiQU
