phase-solubility analysis

[′fāz ‚säl·yə‚bil·əd·ē ə‚nal·ə·səs]
(analytical chemistry)
Solvent technique used to determine the amount and number of components in a solid substance; the weight of sample added to the solvent is plotted against the weight of sample dissolved, with breakpoints in the curve occurring with each progressive saturation of the solvent with respect to each of the components; can be combined with extraction and recrystallization procedures.
