Question details

5) A standard analytical procedure for measuring the aqueous concentration (Cx) of a highly hydrophobic compound with a low aqueous saturation solubility (Ca is to first extract the hydrophobic compound from a large volume of water into a smaller volume of organic solvent such as octanol, and then analyze the concentration of the hydrophobic compound in the organic solvent (Cost) what volume of octanol is required to extract 99.9% of pyrene present in 1 L of a water sample? Assume thermodynamic equilibrium and a constant temperature of 25 ? Pyrene CIoHioMW 202.26 grams/mole
