Explanation:
This is a word used for example in drinking, to chase a beer with a whiskey! To drink a beer and then knock back a whiskey.

So to chase a solution with toluene might imply 'adding toluene to the solution'

I didn't find any refs on Google (direct, that is)

Explanation:
Ailish's explanation of what "chased with" means in common parlance is correct. Although a bit odd in this context, it should mean the same thing. Toluene is a solvent; perhaps it was poured through a piece of equipment to clean out traces of the preceding solution.
