As a former organic and medicinal chemist, I can say with certainty that the ethyl acetate and hexanes do not need to be separated from each other. As long as the purification process provides a clean binary mixture, the chemists can use the recycled mixture and add either ethyl acetate or hexanes to get the desired ratio.

We have been trying to find ways to reduce/reuse/recycle. One of our largest wastes is from the organic chemists. The waste in question is hexane/ethyl acetate. Has anyone heard of a way to separate these two and reuse them?
