The International Solvent Extraction Conferences have been and continue to be a major gathering of scientists, engineers, operators and vendors from around the world, who present new findings since the last meeting, exchange ideas, make business contacts, and conduct collegial discussions.

As to that the topics of the last 19th ISEC 2011 in Santiago, Chile, were:

  • Industrial practices and new projects
  • Hydrometallurgy and metals extractions
  • Nuclear fuel reprocessing
  • Process chemistry and engineering
  • Analytical and preparative applications
  • Biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, life science products and organic products
  • Fundamentals
  • Novel reagents, materials and techniques.

As further information is the following link to “Standard Test Systems for Liquid Extraction” recommended by the European Federation of Chemical Engineering, which is often requested: (look under literature).
