Question

You have 2 m^{3} of an aqueous
solution, W, of your desired component A. However, the solution
also contains an undesired byproduct B. You are to separate
component A from component B by batch wise liquid-liquid extraction
using 2 m^{3} of an organic solvent S. For A the
distribution coefficient is 3, and for B the distribution
coefficient is 0.25. Design a suitable process and calculate the
yield and the product purity.
