Legal Chloroform Is Used All Across America As A Solvent And Chemical Reagent

Posted On September 6, 2019

Chloroform was formerly used as an inhaled anesthetic during surgery, however, the main use of chloroform in USA industry is as a solvent. Around the glove, chloroform is also used in pesticide formulations, as a solvent for fats, oils, rubber, alkaloids, waxes, and resins, as a cleansing agent, grain fumigant, in fire extinguishers, and in the rubber industry.  It is used as a solvent in organic chemistry, in photography and in making dyes, drugs and pesticides.

It is not illegal to have laboratory grade chloroform in America. According to U.S. regulations, it is legal to buy chloroform online from Lab Alley.  Chloroform should be used with exteme caution because it can be harmful and fatal in someone is exposed to extremely large doses for an extended period of time. 

As of September of 2019, most of the chloroform sold by Lab Alley in the United States is used in homes, pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities and laboratories to manufacture botanical oils, nutritional and dietary supplements and other chemicals. Chloroform-assisted phenol extraction is a popular application of chloroform in the USA.  It is useful for the extraction, separation and purification of alkaloids (such as morphine) of pharmaceutical importance from plant materials .

    Alcohol For Tinctures

    Many tincture manufacturers in the United States use alcohol (ethanol/ ethyl alcohol) to make herbal tinctures. They dilute high-proof alcohol such as grain alcohol, 190 proof ethanol or 200 proof food grade alcohol to use in herbal tinctures. Tinctures sold in retail stores and online in the United States come in small bottles that normally include a long stem glass pipette used to measure out drops. Medicinal supplement manufacturers by "Tincture Grade Alcohol" from Lab Alley to make herbal oil supplements in a liquid form. Most of these nutritional or medicinal oils are derived from culinary herbs such as oregano.  

    Tinctures produced in the USA using high proof ethyl alcohol may contain extracts form a single root, tree bark, culinary herb or medicinal plant.  Sometimes a combination of bioactive compounds are extracted from different plant species to manufacture nutraceuticals and adaptogenic tinctures. Extracts, botanical oil infusions and botanical macerations obtained from plants by using solvents such as "tincture grade alcohol" are blended with carrier oils (digestible oils and indigestible oils) such as coconut oil, fish oil and olive oil and then packaged in small amber glass bottles. People make tinctures at home for their own health benefits and personal wellness. Tinctures made with alcohol are also manufactured commercially in the USA for sale to consumers in retail health food stores, nutritional centers and vitamin shops. Liquid plant extracts are becoming very popular in America. To learn more about purchasing alcohol for tinctures, click here.

    Heptane For Industrial Botanical Processing Facilities | 55 Gallon Drum | $900

    Heptane, ethanol and hexane are used by industrial botanical extraction facilities and plant processing facilities in the USA. Some botanical extraction equipment used at these facilities are compatible with ethanol, heptane and hexane. Heptane in 55 gallon drums are sold online by Lab Alley and are used by large scale industrial agri-processing facilities.

    How 200 Proof Ethanol Completely Denatured With Heptane Is Used In U.S. Botanical Industries

    Ethanol denatured with heptane is a high purity extraction grade. Ethanol and n-heptane are non-polar solvents. This extraction solvent is ideal the production of "crude extracts". Crude extract is an unprocessed material that must be refined by botanical processors to produce final products sold to consumers. Crude extracts are produced using ethanol extraction or CO2 extraction. Note that heptane should be purged from final products and crude extracts.

    Heptane is used in the USA to dissolve or remove waxes/ lipids during the extraction process. Because heptane is nonpolar it is a good solvent for extraction. Heptane’s boiling point is around 209°F, so it is important to properly purge the heptane before consumption. When processing plant material the first step is to dry it out and then soak it in the solvent until it dissolves. Then the extract can be collected from the solvent. Next is the purging process, because hexane is not pressurized the purging process may take longer than using ethanol denatured with hexane. But using heptane as a solvent has its benefits. It creates a more potent and flavorful botanical oil. Lab Alley provides fast shipping in the USA. You can order heptane for botanical processing facilities in a 55 gallon drum for $900.

    Hexane For Sale Online In The USA

    Non-polar solvents such as hexane are used for botanical extraction in the botanical industry.  Some botanical polishing applications require greater purity and potency, so it is desirable to remove inactive ingredients like fats, lipids, and plant waxes, as well as any chlorophyll and other water solubles by using hexane to re-dissolve and filter compounds extracted from plants. For more information on polishing extracts, click here.

    Ethanol is also used in extraction processes. 95% HPLC Reagent grade hexane is used, along with water, to clean up or "wash" an alcohol extraction. Hexane must be evaporated, purged or scrubbed from botanical extractions for health and safety reasons.

    What Is Hexane Used For In The Botanical Processing and Extraction Industry?

    Hexane can be used as a solvent and a wash in the botanical extraction process. n-Hexane is used to extract oil and other compounds from plant material. Hexane is used to remove chlorophyll from plant materials and extracts. The hexane extraction is a process frequently used in food industry and soyfood processing. Hexane is a popular solvent for extraction of oils, chlorophyll, bioactive compounds and other constituents of plant foods. Hexane removes undesirable constituents from plant foods and solutions. Buy hexane for botanical oil extraction from Lab Alley online in the USA.  In solvent extraction, n-hexane is used as a solvent for its attributes such as simple recovery, non-polar nature, low latent heat of vaporization (330 kJ/kg) and high selectivity to solvents.  Hexane has been widely used for oil extraction because of easy oil recovery, narrow boiling point (63–69 °C) and excellent solubilizing ability.

    It is important to understand the safety and efficiency of various extraction methods.  Hexane is highly flammable and explosive. It is important to use hexane in the correct environment and take the necessary safety precautions. Hexane should be used in a well-ventilated area or outside. People use hexane to produce a final product that is much more potent than the original herb. When using hexane for botanical processing it allows the user to isolate more desirable compounds than the herb provides freshly harvested. The purpose of using hexane or other solvents such as ethanol, pentane or hexane are to reduce the plant in solution then remove the chemicals. If done incorrectly the herbal oil and compounds can remain full of chemicals that could be harmful to the human body. In order to purge hexane from the finished product there are two options; heat and vacuum using thin film techniques or washing it in food grade ethanol. Hexane is ideal for dissolving the waxes and lipids during the extraction process. It is important to use a good grade of hexane or distill the hexane before using it for the extraction. This will produce better results in the end. You can purchase hexane for botanical processing and extraction at Lab Alley.

    Using Isopropyl Alcohol For Botanical Extraction

    Raw plant matter can be extracted of its active compounds using isopropyl alcohol in a process called a QWISO, or quick wash isopropyl. It is recommended to use the purest isopropyl alcohol possible, with purities at 99% if possible. Yields vary depending on how finely you've grinded the plant matter used, and whether or not you winterize the extract as a step in the process. You will need roughly 100 -200 mL of isopropyl alcohol for every 10 grams of plant material in this process.

    Winterization is the use of cold temperatures and your active solvent to separate fats and waxes with higher melting points, further separating extracts from plant fibers, waxes, and fats. Processes involving isopropyl alcohol and ethanol can integrate winterization as part of the extraction process, while CO2 purges, for example, will have to refine the product through winterization and filtration afterwards.

    Learn more about solvent used in the botanicalindustry on our website.

    Alchimia Blog, a blog operated by Alchimia Grow Shop in Figueres, Spain, advises against using isopropyl alcohol for performing extractions, emphasizing the toxic effects of ingesting isopropyl alcohol - even residual amounts. Instead, they suggest only using isopropyl alcohol for cleaning utensils, glass pipes, and other manufacturing equipment. Instead, they recommend ethanol for botanical processing.
