General description

EMSURE grade solvents are suitable for a broad spectrum of classical lab applications, and are frequently used in regulated and highly demanding lab applications. EMSURE provides worldwide best and most extensive product specifications. We declare our EMSURE range to be in compliance with the ACS, with the reagent part of the European Pharmacopoeia (Reag. Ph Eur) and also with the ISO standards.

Application

n-Heptane is used as a:
  • Solvent in the extraction of sulfur-containing hydrocarbons.
  • Substrate for the double oxidation of medium-chain alkanes.
