A Fresh Look At Liquid-Liquid Extraction

Liquid-liquid extraction refers to the process of transferring target solute materials from a feed phase to a solvent phase. This mass-transfer operation can be used in array of applications, including removing high-boiling-point organic materials from wastewater, valuable products from fermentation broths, recovering acetic acid or other hydrogen-bonded organic compounds from water, and more.
