Radial Molecular Weight Distribution X Vortex

    Chemical Separation Using Ranque-Hilsch Vortex

    The full title for the post should be "Can molecules be separated in solution using a Ranque-Hilsch vortex?"

    I am a chemist, and my conventions re: aerosols/liquids may be wrong. My interest is in a system that might enrich a soluble analyte in a great excess of solvent (99.8+%).

    I am aware of the gas centrifuge idea, I need some practical advice, my system would be on the order of microliters liquid/sec.

    I was years ago fascinated by the MW separation characteristics of the Ranque-Hilsch vortex tube. Is this concept at all practical?

    Please let me know if you have ideas about this topic.--Thanks very much, CS
