Yes, Im thinkin of the steam-way. Ive worked with steam-destill.\separation before, Its called a Kjeldahl's destillation.
But I dont know what the steam would do to the lipids and arom.oils mentioned in my init.post.
Could I use low temp.instead of the superheated steam?
(I mean, when ure working with inorganic, u can speed up the dest.time and the yield of dest. If the steam is led over a 10 cm.section of ironpiping,thats being heated with some sort of el.element or if u're working with good ventilation\nonflammable solvents u can use a propaneheater or a kind of bignozzeled blowtorch, on lowest output from a distance, just after and just before its led into the Drechscler-pyrex. So the steam holds about 2-300 C.)
But in this setting, I guess its the respect.temps of decomp.that sets the limits?
