A study of the PDSE (predispersed solvent extraction) for succinic acid by colloidal liquid aphrons was conducted. The organic phase contaning TOA (tri-n-octylamine) and 1-octanol permits a selective extraction of succinic acid from its aqueous solution. There was no difference of the extractability of PDSE and that of conventional mixer-settler type extraction. Taking into account the no mechanical mixing in PDSE, it was concluded that the PDSE process is more adaptive than the conventional mixer-settler type extraction process. From mass transfer analysis at the various concentration of TOA in counter-current continuous operation, the concentration of TOA had no influence on the mass transfer coefficient. The loading values in continuous PDSE were almost same as those in batch operation.
