A METHOD FOR THE SEPARATION OF OIL FROM AN AQUEOUS OIL DETERGENT SOLUTION PRIOR TO IR ANALYSIS

A procedure was devised to permit the analysis of oil in water solutions in the presence of dissolved detergents using the CCl4 extraction-IR spectro-photometric method. After an initial extraction of the aqueous oil detergent solution with CCl4, the extract was evaporated on a slica gel column and eluted with CCl4. This procedure effectively removed all the detergent and allowed an interference-free analysis of the CCl4-oil solution with the IR-spectrophotometer. About 10% of the initial oil was lost in the procedure.
