|How to separate oil from water|
|19:19:10 Apr 15th 09 - Mr. Iggymydog:|
How do I remove plant oil from water?im making essential oil and need to sepreate the oil from the water. I dont have a filter. but i do have some questions...
1) does oil eveporate?
2) oil and water dont mix and oil freezes at a lower temp then water so can i freez them to seprate them?
3) does puting a plant in boiling water for a few hours bring out the oils?"

" Your best bet is probably just to let the mix of oil and water sit for
a while, at least an hour or two, until it separates out, then skim the
oil off the top.

Could I ask what the whole charade was for?
|21:46:28 Apr 15th 09 - Mr. Troll:|
My suggestion is that you can centrifuge it to separate it into two layers.

i thought oil was non polar and water was polar..those two separate..

oil has polar head and nonpolar tail. That will form lipid bilayer on the surface of water.
|00:04:03 Apr 16th 09 - Mr. Rambutan:|
but the exposed surface of the oil is nonpolar, and the structure of the polar water molecules interacting with the nonpolar oil creates an easy boundary without complicated methods. :/
|00:14:19 Apr 16th 09 - Mr. Troll:|
The polar head is exposed outside in lipid bilayer. The cell member is one of the example.

Actually I agree with Wraith. Why?
|00:26:08 Apr 16th 09 - Mr. Troll:|
|02:04:19 Apr 16th 09 - Mr. Draik:|
i was gna go with distillation :S or even simple separation since oil and water have a well defined boundary

Lmao....zeta's got the best answer! xD

Let me rephrase cos I'll bet none of you have any idea what happened..
|07:46:44 Apr 16th 09 - Mr. Rambutan:|
I'll bet you seriously undervalue the intelligence of this community.... or seriously overestimate your own.
|07:52:30 Apr 16th 09 - Lord Wraith The Hermit:|
The first one :P But its true though >.< How are they meant to know what happened? I'm just explaining and asking... why??
|08:13:32 Apr 16th 09 - Lord Stewie Griffin:|
Thank you for explaining Wraith.

why not "soap" it out of the water aka shake it violently? if the oils have a polar and non-polar part, it should build enough bridges and create enough bubbles, then scoop off the bubbly part...or just wait a looong time until it all layers out by itself and scoop off each of the formed oil-layers...or just slow-centrifuge it so it'll speed that process up a bit...or perhaps electrophoresis?

It is oregano..... Yeah that's it .... Oregano....

You know what's awesome? weed pizza. You just get take and bake pizza, then you put some pot on it and bake it. (make sure to break up and de-seed your pot first :O )

ALLOW OIL TO RISE...USE TEASPOON TO SKIM SURFACE!
