Cholesterol Extraction using Soxhlet Method

  1. Nov 20, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    During an experiment using Soxhlet Method to extract cholesterol from egg yolk, also using dicloromethane as a reagent, we crush half boiled egg yolk and put 80 cm3 of dicloromethane.

    2. Relevant equations

    Then comes a question which is assuming the maximum of absorption of the reagent-cholestrol is 550 nm, sugest a way to quantify it.

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I don't understand what should I answer here

    As worded it doesn't make much sense. Obviously it is about measuring concentrating using visible light spectrometer.
