Abstract

The application of liquid-liquid extraction for the downstream separation of 1,3-propanediol from dilute aqueous solutions has been tested. Preliminary solvent screening was performed using the group contribution method. Experimental verification of the predictions revealed that the distribution of 1,3-propanediol into organic solvents is not good enough to make simple extraction efficient.
