The present work was carried out to study the extraction of volatile acids like acetic and propionic with tri-n-butyl phosphate (as extractant) dissolved in laboratory-modified nontoxic diluent. A graphical method was used to calculate the values of Dimerization coefficient (D) and partition coefficient (P) from distribution coefficient (K D ) data of both volatile acids. The extraction equilibrium constants(K E(1:1) ) and loading factors (Z) for both volatile acids were also determined. Based
more » ... n the values of Z it can be concluded that there is a formation of 1:1 complexes between Tri Butyl Phosphate and Volatile acids.
