I have a question about anti-solvent precipitation in organic chemistry:
Is it possible to precipitate lycopene or other carotenes using this method?
I have been extracting carotenes like lycopene by Soxhlet method using acetone as solvent. I was wondering if it's possible to precipitate these compounds using the anti-solvent method.
If it's possible which anti-solvent would be more accurate, in the documents that I have been reading , it was mentioned methanol and other alcohols but I'm not sure if the acetone that I used in the extracting part would cause any interference.
