Equilibrium and kinetic studies for the extraction of succinic acid from aqueous solution with tridodecylamine diluted in MIBK are reported. All measurements were carried out at 298.15 K. The extent to which the organic phase may be loaded with succinic acid is expressed as a loading ratio, Z. The equilibrium data were also interpreted by a proposed mechanism of three reactions of complexation by which (1:1) and (2:1) acid-amine complexes are formed. Kinetics of extraction of succinic acid by tridodecylamine in MIBK has also been determined. Kinetic studies for the extraction of succinic acid from aqueous solution with tridodecylamine diluted in MIBK were carried out using a stirred cell for kinetic studies. The results of the liquid-liquid equilibrium measurements were correlated by a linear solvation energy relationship (LSER) model, which takes into account physical interactions. From the regression coefficients, information on the solvent-solute interaction is obtained and solvation models are proposed.
