Abstract

(Figure Presented) By modifying the walls of a glass microchannel so that one side is hydrophilic and the other hydrophobic, counter-current laminar flow of an organic phase relative to an aqueous phase is effected (see picture). This system is applied to the efficient extraction of a cobalt complex from toluene into water.
