However, one must also consider that an additional clean-up step is necessary to rid the sample of solid residue. Additionally, the method is somewhat limited to compounds and solvents with polar properties because nonpolar entities are not readily heated by microwaves (Wang and Weller, 2006). , 2007). , 2008). , 2010). In this study, Wang et al. (2010) avoided methanol due to its toxicity even though its higher dissipation factor can help a sample achieve higher energy absorption. The authors also observed that while an increase in solvent initially improved extraction, an excess of solvent had a detrimental effect on extraction possibly due to excess swelling that may have occured with increased levels of solvent.
