Description:
Surfactants beyond critical micelles concentration (CMC) form micelles structure in water. Micelles are surfactant agglomerate in which hydrophobic parts are in inter core and hydrophobic parts pointers towards water. Reverse micelles (reverse structure) are formed by surfactants in all phase. Polar organic compound soluble in water can be solubilited in solvent by using reverse micelles and there by miscible polar organic compound can be repeated form water easily simply starring water and solvent phase and surfactants together in mixer settler equipment. After mixing they are allowed to setle and the oil and water phase is separated due to gravity. Thus, organize matter is exhorted into the soment phase form water and its efficiency is much higher than the conventional light liquid exhort ion process

Special Features:
Cheap, easy to operate, back interaction is possible.
