Metal carryover in steam distillation

Posted by Christian Lucas on Jun 11, 2018 5:08 pm

Hi.
I am looking for some documentation references concerning metal and heavy metal carryover when using steam distillation. I am sure from my formal education years ago, with the exception of mercury, metals do not carryover in steam distillation due to the relativly high boiling point of all metals (relative to water). however i cannot find a literature reference to substantiate this. Does anybody know of a reputable literature reference Icould use??
