Abstract
In this research work the potentialities of microemulsion bulk liquid membrane for the selective transport of L-tryptophan (L-Trp) and L-tyrosine (L-Tyr) are investigated at 298.15 K. Reversed micelle formed by sodium bis(2-ethylhexyl)sulfosuccinate (AOT) in dichloroethane, was used as mobile carrier to transport amino acids between a source and a receiving aqueous phase. The effects of pH, surfactant concentration and initial amino acid concentration on the extraction efficiency and transfer rate of the amino acids were studied. It is verified that for a mixture of two amino acids, L-Trp can be extracted selectively by using this type of the bulk liquid membrane with optimized condition.
