Name two organic compounds that cannot be extracted effectively from an aqueous solution by means of an immiscible organic solvent such as diethyl ether or cyclohexane

  • Chemistry -

    Would ethanol be one of them? Perhaps acetic acid as another. My feeling is both of these would be next to impossible since they are so soluble in water.
