One of the modern techniques of mixture separation is the application of liquid membranes. They reveal the ability of selective transport of mixture components in which a liquid membrane constitutes a separate phase which separates two other liquid or gas phases. This property of membranes makes them useful in the textile and food industries, in hydrometallurgy, medicine, biotechnology, environmental protection, in the separation of hydrocarbons and gases, and in the concentration and separation of amino acids, metal ions and other mixtures and suspensions.
