Science and Practice of Liquid-Liquid Extraction: Volume 1
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Liquid-liquid extraction is a method of separating the components of a liquid mixture by contacting it with a second, immiscible liquid in which one or more of the constituents are preferentially soluble. The technique has found application in such diverse fields as the nuclear fuel processing and pharmaceutical industries. This study is part of a two-volume work which discusses theoretical aspects of the subject as well as typical applications in the hydrometallurgical, nuclear, pharmaceutical and food industries. This first volume is concerned with the thermodynamics of phase equilibria; mass transfer in liquid-liquid systems including the complicating role of interfacial turbulence; behaviour of liquid-liquid dispersions; and the selection and design of countercurrent contactors for particular applications.
