Glossary of Terms Used in Extraction

Corresponding Author: Janusz Pawliszyn

Approaches for analytical-scale extraction are developing rapidly as new strategies are implemented to improve sample throughput and to minimize material use in laboratory methods and to develop on-site capabilities. In this contribution, definitions and recommendation for symbols for the terms used in analytical extractions are presented. Exhaustive, microextraction, elevated temperature, microwave- and ultrasound-assisted, parallel batch, flow through systems, and membrane extraction approaches are discussed. An associated tutorial titled “Extraction” provides a detailed introduction to the topic.
