#74 - Identification and Application of New Solvents and Processes for Separations (02C01)
Solvent extraction continues to be an important separation unit operation. The increasing needs to achieve higher recoveries and selectivities from feeds of lower product concentrations demand improvements in our understanding of extraction fundamentals, along with our consideration of new solvents, new processes, and new contacting and sensing/monitoring equipment. This session will focus on paper presentations that address approaches to the identification and application of new solvents in extraction, including ionic liquids and aqueous two-phase systems. Papers are welcome that deal with experimental and theoretical work.
