Abstract :
Extraction of acetic acid from an aqueous solution was carried out in a laboratory scale sonicator using ethyl acetate as a solvent. The results were compared with and without the effect of sonication. A significant separation of acetic acid was found as a result of sonication. The effect of mixing time, feed composition, and solvent to feed ratio was investigated. The effect of time required for extraction using varying feed concentrations was found to be same. Increasing solvent to feed ratio improved the performance of the extractor system. It was observed that the extraction was improved by a factor of two with an eight times increase of solvent to feed ratio (vol/vol).
