General description

Dodecane is a linear alkane mainly found in jet fuels.

Application

Dodecane may be used as an inorganic diluent to form an organic phase along with decanol as an active diluent and tri-n-octylamine as an extractant. This system may be used for the extraction of lactic acid from aqueous solutions.
