Liquid butane is less volatile, but maybe not as effective at extracting the oil. If I were to use dimethyl ether, where would I get it, and what would be a good method at keeping it below its boiling point (-25C)? Butane maybe an easier route seeing how many BBQ tanks have it in them, but it is pressurized gas and I would want it in a liquid. Any ideas?? Thanks for the previous posts.
