Asia FLLEX enables difficult aqueous work-ups
The Asia FLLEX (Flow Liquid Liquid EXtraction) module is suited to the preparation of samples prior to analysis.
The Asia FLLEX is the only commercially available, laboratory scale flow aqueous extraction system on the market, and can be used with a wide range of organic solvents that are either more or less dense than water.
Its advanced membrane technology enables separation of the widest possible range of phase mixtures, including the separation of THF from an aqueous phase, and offers better control of bubble size, limiting the formation ofemulsions which commonly occur using traditional liquid-liquid extractions.
The device offers continuous mixing of organic product streams with an aqueous phase, followed by rapid diffusion and subsequent phase separation into the constituent parts, allowing aqueous work-up to be integrated immediately after synthesis to provide cleaner reactions with fewer impurities.
