This report follows the development of systematic solvent screening strategies for the identification of superior pure solvents and introduces techniques for the identification of effective coextractants. Specifically, methods to predict the biocompatibility and extractant capability of solvents are discussed. Biocompatibility is predicted by using heuristic data or the correlations between bioactivity and the logarithm of the partition coefficient of the solvent or the concentration of solvent… CONTINUE READING
