ABSTRACT

The goal of this study is to investigate the effect of solvent types on the extraction of tartaric acid, an important biotechnological product, from aqueous solutions with Alamine-336. The extractant Alamine-336 used here is a mixture of long chain tertiary amines. Diluting solvents used in this study are heptane, toluene, kerosene, methylibuthylketone (MIBK) and isooctane. Furthermore toluene-kerosene mixture was used too in 1 : 1 volume ratio. The distribution coefficients and loading factors were calculated from experimental results and compared with each other. Among of diluents used in this study, the best results were obtained with MIBK.
