Access from EThOS:
Reverse micelle extraction has received considerable attention in recent years due to its ability to selectively solubilise solutes from an aqueous phase, and in the case of biomolecules to maintain their biological activities. This thesis will reports the results from studies on extraction of penicillin G from aqueous solution (forward extraction) and from the reverse micelles to a new aqueous solution (backward extraction). The extraction is influenced by the initial penicillin G concentration, the salt type and concentration in the aqueous phase, pH, and surfactant concentration.
