Liquid-liquid extraction, also known as solvent extraction or partitioning, is a method used to separate compounds based on their relative partitioning in two different immiscible liquids. It is the extraction of a substance from one liquid phase into another liquid phase; in other words, it is the separation of a substance from a mixture by preferentially dissolving that substance in a suitable solvent. By this process, a soluble compound is separated from an insoluble matrix.
