Abstract

Using a newly synthesized surfactant, a kinetic study of copper extraction by liquid surfactant membranes containing anti-2-hydroxy-5-nonylbenzophenone oxime was carried out in a stirred tank, along with studies of the extraction equilibrium of copper with the extractant organic solution containing the surfactant and adsorption equilibrium of the surfactant between the organic and aqueous solutions at 303 K. The extraction rate by liquid surfactant membranes was analyzed by an interfacial reaction model between the carrier adjacent to the interface and the 1:1 copper chelate complex adsorbed at the interface. Furthermore, the change of extent of copper extracted with time was simulated by use of the constants of adsorption equilibrium and the interfacial reaction rate obtained from the analysis.
