A laboratory bench procedure was developed to efficiently extract naphthenic acids from bulk volumes of Athabasca oil sands tailings pond water (TPW) for use in mammalian oral toxicity testing. This solvent-based procedure involved low solvent losses and a good extraction yield with low levels of impurities. Importantly, labour-intensive centrifugation of source water to remove solids was avoided, allowing processing of much larger volumes of water compared with previous protocols.
