This paper studies the synergistic effect of some alcohols such as isoamyl alcohol, pentanol, hexanol and heptanol on the Extraction of H 3 PO 4 from Syrian phosphoric acid by (TBP). The possibility to use these alcoholic compounds as a diluent instead of kerosene was also studied. The results show that the alcohols have higher extraction yeild than (TBP) diluted in kerosene. The alcohols have an important synergistic effect, when they were used asdiluent instead of kerosene, on the Extraction
