The term applied to the whole initial liquid phase containing the @E02299@.
- The solvent may contain only one @E02299@ or it may be a @CT07545@ homogeneous mixture of @E02299@(s) with diluent(s) and also sometimes modifiers and accelerators.
- The term solvent must not be used as a synonym for any of the individual components of a @CT07545@ liquid phase even where, in the case of a single component (e.g. 3-methylbutan-2-one or tributyl phosphate), it becomes identical with the @E02299@.
- The term may be qualified to denote the extract from a given processing step e.g. loaded solvent.
