Liquid-liquid extraction is a process in which a solute is removed from a liquid by transferring the solute into a second liquid phase. The two liquid phases must be immiscible (insoluble) to each other. The separation is based on different solubilities of the solute in the two phases. Extraction is gentle, suitable for unstable molecules.
