I was having troubling finding information on dimethyl ether’s solubility in any other solvents so I thought I’d post on here and see if anyone has data on this or if anyone has done this before.
I’m curious as to whether dimethyl ether and isobutane are misicible with one another. DME has been shown to be effective for dissolving terpenes, pigments, and proteins so it would be interesting to see what all could be pulled from a layer of isobutane after having extracted with it and adding DME to the solution.
Both solvents boil at -11°F so harmful solvent residues shouldn’t be an issue.
If someone can tell me if one will float on the other I’ll buy some DME and test this out.
Edit: DME is toxic.
