: The extraction of L(+) tartaric acid from aqueous solutions by amberlite LA-2 is a secondary amine mixture in different diluent solvents. Extraction equilibria of L(+) tartaric acid by amberlite LA-2 in 1-octanol, cyclohexane, isooctane, hexane, methyl isobutyl ketone (MIBK) solvents at temperature 298.15 K have been measured. The batch extraction experiments distribution coefficients (D), loading factors (Z) and extraction efficiency (E) were calculated. The maximum removal of L(+) tartaric acid is 91 % with MIBK and 0.92 mol. L-1 initial concentration of Amberlite LA-2.
