What size of soxhlet device should I use?

Printer-friendly versionSend to friendIf you want the device to be compatible with the Stadtler distillation train, the male end should be 24/40. The top end is less critical, as it need only match the male end of the Allihn condenser attached to it. Note that you will probably want a smaller boiling flask, in the range of 500mL, in order to use a smaller amount of water to extract the soluble salts.
