Extractives (Ethanol-Soluble)


The Ethanol-Soluble Extractives content is the proportion of the biomass that is lost as a result of extraction with 95% ethanol.

Analytical Procedure for Extractives (Ethanol-Soluble)

Step 1: Removal of Ethanol-Soluble Extractives
The steps involved in the removal of 95% ethanol-soluble extractives from samples are listed below:

1. The moisture content of the sample is determined, in duplicate.

2. Two 11 ml capacity DIONEX ASE (Accelerated Solvent Extraction) cells are filled with recorded weights of the sample.

3. The following DIONEX ASE 200 Method is then used on each cell:

   Pressure:   1500 psi
   Temperature:   100 celcius
   Preheat Time:   0 mins
   Heat Time:   5 mins
   Static Time:   7 mins
   Flush Volume:   150%
   Purge Time:   150 s
   Static Cycles:   3
   Solvent:   95% Ethanol


4. A box, of known weight, is taken and the remaining biomass from the extraction cell transferred to it. This is repeated for the other cell.

5. After 2 days each box is weighed again and the moisture content of a subsample of the extracted biomass determined (in duplicate).

6. The weight of extractives is determined as the mass loss in the biomass sample due to extraction in the ASE-200 (corrected for moisture).

Equipment Used for Extractives (Ethanol-Soluble) Analysis

NIR Model

Ethanol-Soluble Extractives Global 1


This model has been built from a global dataset comprising a wide variety of biomass samples. Click here for a list of the types of samples that were used to build this model.

The samples were air-dried and then ground-down to a particle size of less than 850 microns prior to NIR analysis.
