The most popular organic solvent sold by Lab Alley online is food grade ethanol which is derived from the processing of agricultural crops and feedstocks such as corn.  Advances in biotechnology have helped to advance the use of more renewable feedstocks used to produce solvents for cosmetics and personal care formulations for the personal care industry.

Companies that extract spices and perform phytochemical analysis of spices and condiments often prefer to purchase food grade solvents such as ethanol from Lab Alley.  Companies in the United States order bio-based solvents from Lab Alley for the green extraction of lipids to make biofuel.  Bio-based solvents such as ethyl acetate are an alternative to petrochemical solvents, such as hexane.

Although Lab Alley is a major supplier of petroleum-based solvents to many industries in the United States, the Austin Texas based firm is now promoting bio-based, renewable sourced alternatives that are characterized by their benign toxicological and environmental profile. These solvents and chemicals have a low VOC, are renewable in origin, can be derived from waste and are biodegradable. As new applications expand in the field of biomass refining and valorization, Lab Alley has become a leading supplier of green solvents to biorefineries for biomass processing in the USA.

Solvents purchased from Lab Alley are used in synthetic chemistry, analytical chemistry, pharmaceutical production and processing, the food and flavour industry and the materials and coatings sectors. New markets for solvents used in green chemistry are guiding Lab Alley to promote the use of safer, more environmentally friendly solvents.

Customers that want buy "edible" nontoxic solvents and natural nontoxic diluents to create mixtures of plant volatiles frequently order extraction grade ethanol online from Lab Alley. Manufacturing facilities in the U.S. purchase nontoxic solvents to extract compounds from plants for use in foods, cosmetics, or pharmaceuticals.  Lab Alley sells green solvents and bio-based solvents made from corn and vegetable oil that exhibit a low toxicity, low miscibility, higher boiling point, less odor, and easy recycling process. 

Companies and individuals that capture the essential oils in plants to make cosmetics buy natural solvents such as organic food grade MCT oil from Lab Alley.

Organic solvents are gaining popularity in the United States as more botanical makers and plant extraction facilities go green. Americans are making a concerted effort to use natural solvents and biosolvents instead of petroleum-based solvents. It is estimated that 92% of all organic chemicals are petroleum based. The production of petroleum-based solvents has been blamed for intensifying climate change.

Solvents Are Used To Extract, Recover, Remove, Analyze And Test Bioactive Compounds And Volatile Compounds From Plants

The best solvents, both polar and non-polar, are purchased from Lab Alley to extract bioactive and volatile compounds from plants. To choose the best solvents for oil extraction, factors such as processing time and yields must be considered before making a decision on which solvent to buy. Ethanol, methanol and acetone are common solvents used by plant extraction facilities and botanical tincture makers in the U.S.

Lab Alley sells solvents online that are used in the United States for plant material and botanical material processing, bioacative compound extraction and essential oil refining. Lab Alley sells pure 200 proof (100%) alcohol is sold to individuals and companies that make herbal tinctures. Tincture grade alcohol is 200 proof food grade alcohol or diluted (with distilled water) and sold in less concentrated non-denatured solutions such as 140 proof or 190 proof ethyl alcohol.

Solvents such as methanol and chloroform are used for tincture analysis and potency testing. Solvents and 200 proof alcohol (food grade) purchased online from Lab Alley to extract bioactive compounds and manufacture tinctures are chosen based on factors such as the right extraction method for your application, processing time, selectivity and yield. Various techniques are used for the extraction and isolation of essential oils and natural products from medicinal and aromatic plants.

The type of plant material (leaves, flowers, roots) being used determines which method of extraction will produce the best results. Some plant materials, like vanilla, which is difficult to extract, or jasmine flowers or rose petals, which are too delicate to survive the process of distillation, use another method to extract their aromatic essence, a process called solvent extraction.

 

Lab Alley sells coconut oil (MCT oil) in bulk 1 gallon, 5 gallon and 55 gallon containers to U.S. botanical tincture makers that manufacture edibles and topicals. Coconut oil has among the highest concentration of fatty acids (saturated fats). The surplus of these fatty acids in the coconut oil create a stronger binding agent for plant extracts.

 

Ultrasound-assisted extraction is a relatively straightforward strategy that can be used to enhance the efficacy of alcohol extraction methods. Hydrodynamic extraction technology has recently been introduced to the botanical industry, which utilizes a combination of temperature, pressure, and ultrasonication to create full spectrum herbal extracts from whole fresh flower.

Solvent extraction is the most widely used method in the USA in 2019. Food grade ethanol is a very popular solvent for plant extraction. Hexane has been widely used for oil extraction because of easy oil recovery.

Various plant extraction methods are used to remove specific compounds such as phytochemicals and antioxidants. Extraction methods include solvent extraction, distillation method, pressing and sublimation according to the extraction principle.

Steam distillation is one the most popular methods to extract essential oils such as oregano oil. Essential oils are natural aromatic extracts from plant material including grasses, leaves, flowers, needles, twigs, peels of fruit, seeds, bark, and roots. During the steam distillation process, the botanicals are placed in a still and pressurized steam is forced through the plant material. The hot steam forces open pockets aromatic compounds. The compounds escape from the plant material and evaporate into the steam. Sub-critical water extraction is another option for the selective extraction of oxygenated compounds from oregano.

A popular chemical extraction method is called the Soxhlet method. Soxhlet extractors use n-hexane as a solvent for extraction of oils and compounds from seeds. Soxhlet extraction is a very useful tool for preparative purposes in which the analyte is concentrated from the matrix as a whole or separated from particular interfering substances. Solvent extraction of solid samples, which is commonly known as solid–liquid extraction, is one of the oldest methods for solid sample pretreatment. Conventional Soxhlet extraction remains as one of the most relevant techniques in the environmental extraction field.

Different plant extraction methods recover live resins, distillates, concentrates, alkaloids, waxes, and essential oils. Methanol and ethanol are good solvents for plant extraction facilities that want to remove fats, raw/ crude extracts, lipids, chlorophyll, proanthocyanidins, biomolecules, lignins, plant-based extracts, flavonoids, cannabinoids, terpense, botanical extracts and polyphenols from plant materials and plant matrices.

Plant-based extracts, such as antioxidants, phytochemicals and polyphenols, are used in a number of end-markets, including cosmetics, foods and nutritional supplements. Plant extraction service companies and commercial extractors in the USA that make botanical products purchase solvents in bulk from Lab Alley. Lab Alley sells extraction grade solvents in 1 gallon bottles, 5 gallon pails, 55 gallon drums, 250 and 270 gallon totes.

Tetrahydrofuran has been explored as a miscible co-solvent in aqueous solution to aid in the liquefaction and delignification of plant lignocellulosic biomass for production of renewable platform chemicals and sugars as potential precursors to biofuels.

Solvents ordered from Lab Alley are highly effective chemicals that can extract important compounds from pant leaves, bark, buds, plant roots, fruits, berries, seeds, plant flowers and plant biomass.
