I am very new to this forum, but have been a moderator at a very large pharmacology forum in the pretty recent past before I having to leave due studying. Nice to be here!
I posted this question in another thread I started but it wasnt the topic of the thread so I decided that I would make a new thread to discuss this issue.
I am wondering what can be done to help prevent flooding/clogging of a Graham condenser during reflux during a soxhlet extraction. An Allihn condenser would be ideal but in the event a Graham is used, what could be done to ensure that this does not happen? I was thinking a less vigorous boil might help slow rate of evaporation and condensation, but wasnt positive on this. Any thoughts?
