Effect of Membrane Materials on Transport Kinetics of Cu(II) through Bulk Liquid Membrane

Siu Hua Chang, Ayub Md Som, and Jagannathan Krishnan
Abstract—The kinetics of Cu(II) transport through a bulk liquid membrane was investigated with different membrane materials. Three types of membrane materials were used: fresh cooking oil, waste cooking oil and kerosene, each of which was mixed with di-2-ethylhexylphosphoric acid (carrier) and tributylphosphate (modifier). Kinetic models derived from the kinetic laws of two consecutive irreversible first-order reactions were used to study the facilitated transport of Cu(II) across the source, membrane and receiving phases of bulk liquid membrane. It was found that the transport kinetics of Cu(II) across the source phase was not affected by different types of membrane materials but those across both the membrane and receiving phases decreased considerably when the membrane materials changed from kerosene, waste cooking oil to fresh cooking oil. The rate constants of Cu(II) removal and recovery processes in bulk liquid membrane using different membrane materials were also determined and compared.

Index Terms—Bulk liquid membrane, Cu(II), membrane materials, transport kinetics.
