Lipid from a solidmaterial. However, a Soxhlet extractor is not limited to the extraction oflipids. Typically, a Soxhlet extraction is only required where the desiredcompound has a limited solubility ina solvent,and the impurity is insoluble in that solvent. If the desired compound hasa high solubility in a solvent then a simple filtration canbe used to separate the compound from the insoluble substance.
Normallya solid material containing some of the desired compound is placed inside athimble made from thick filter paper, which is loaded into the mainchamber of the Soxhlet extractor. The Soxhlet extractor is placed onto a flaskcontaining the extraction solvent. The Soxhlet is then equipped with a condenser.
Thesolvent is heated to reflux. The solvent vapour travels up a distillation arm,and floods into the chamber housing the thimble of solid. The condenser ensuresthat any solvent vapour cools, and drips back down into the chamber housing thesolid material.
