Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The use of liquid membrane-based extractions is increasingly seen as offering an alternative to conventional sample preparation procedures in analysis of chemical species in both environmental and biological media. In this article, emphasis is placed on the attractiveness of liquid membrane-based extraction techniques to a variety of analytical applications such as speciation of metal ions in biological fluids, time-weighted average field sampling, and time-weighted average passive field sampling. Further, the area of designing new and much simpler miniaturized configurations, which is enjoying much attention in liquid membrane-based extraction techniques, is discussed.
