LLE is possible in non-aqueous systems also as a system consisting of a molten metal in contact with molten salts. The solution which is to be extracted is called the feed, and the liquid with which feed is contacted is the solvent. In petroleum industry Extraction process is well used. Other application is in biochemical, pharmaceutical industries for antibiotics and protein recovery.

20. Chromatography and High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC): Liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry analysis of small molecules from biofluids requires sensitive and robust assays. Because of the very complex nature of many biological samples, efficient sample preparation protocols to remove unwanted components and to selectively extract the compounds of interest are an essential part of almost every bioanalytical workflow. High-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) is a separation technique that can be used for the analysis of organic molecules and ions. HPLC is based on mechanisms of adsorption, partition and ion exchange, depending on the type of stationary phase used. HPLC involves a solid stationary phase, normally packed inside a stainless-steel column, and a liquid mobile phase. Separation of the components of a solution results from the difference in the relative distribution ratios of the solutes between the two phases. HPLC can be used to assess the purity and/or determine the content of many pharmaceutical bioprocessing substances.
