of Solvent Extraction, Wiley Interscience publications. Edited
by Teh C. Lo, Malcolm H. I. Baird, and Carl Hanson.
1983 edition. 980 pp.
Contains specialized articles from many different experts in the field
of industrial solvent extraction. Here's a sampling of some of the chapters:
Chemistry of Extraction of Nonreacting Solutes - N. F. Ashton, C.
McDermott, and A. Brench
Unsteady State Extraction - L. Steiner and S. Hartland
Principles of Mixer-Settler Design - M. J. Slater and J. C. Godfrey
Pulsed Packed Columns - A. J. F. Simmons
Scheibel Columns - E. G. Scheibel
Centrifugal Extractors - M. Hafez

Recovery of Metals from Liquid Effluents - S. O. S. Andersson and H.
Instrumentation and Control - S. P. Plonsky
Cost of Equipment - D. R. Woods
Cost of Process - M. W. T. Pratt
There are 31 chapters in all. Though there have been innovations in
solvent extraction technology since 1983, the fundamentals remain true
now as they did when this book was published. Many of the processes
detailed in this book are still in wide use; this isn't computer
technology. At the very least, this book provides an
important starting point for further research. The early chapters
go through the theory, starting with the mathematics of solvent
This is a good theoretical and practical foundation for anyone going
into a field working with industrial solvent extraction.
