Table 2 Experimental values of log( K f )

From: Rational design of polymer-based absorbents: application to the fermentation inhibitor furfural

SPME polymer phases Log( K f ) Log( K f )
−λ ≤ Mean ≤ +λ (Flory-Huggins)
Epoxy 0.41 ≤ 0.59 ≤ 0.81 0.70
PDMS −0.62 ≤ −0.47 ≤ −0.24 −0.21
  1. Experimental values of log(Kf), including the mean and 95% confidence range (±λ), for partitioning from water into epoxy and PDMS are compared to the Flory-Huggins approximation.
