Hexane-95% vs 99% Purity. Can they be combined and used?
« on: September 18, 2021, 01:26:51 AM »
Hello all,

Hope I am posting in the correct section. Can 95% purity n-Hexane be mixed with 99% purity n-Hexane without any adverse effects? Don't really care about the purity levels above 95% as it will only be used for testing process piping in a system. After the test, they will go in to a glass container and remain their until it is needed to test the next system. I have 5 liter quantities of each. I need 10 liters for a test but 95% hexane has a longer lead time and I don't have the time.

 Thanks.

Only adverse effect is the cost of the mixture being higher, as the higher purity solvents always cost more. Other than that nothing wrong should happen.
