How long does it take for the pre-weighed aluminum dish take to dry after the addition of the hexane?
Summary
Xenosepaluminum dishdrying time
Answer
It can take awhile to start to see the spots. On average you lose about 5 mL a min. Increased airflow across the dish will help speed drying. Thereis typically 40-90 mL in the pan. If you had 90 mL you could expect a 15 minute time before you see dry spots.
