Preconcentration is the aspect of analytical method development covering the need to improve detection sensitivity. This review collects the advances in a diversity of approaches to achieve preconcentration by solvent removal. Evaporation in microfluidic and paper-based devices is reported in a variety of forms and later compared to membrane-assisted evaporation. Sample partitioning in an immiscible fluid is also described. The reported methodologies highlight the need to achieve good control of the gas-liquid interface to obtain accurate results. A comprehensive comparison of different strategies is presented here discussing their benefits and drawbacks as well as the research needs in this area.
