    Abstract

    In this work a two coaxial nozzles configuration is used to investigate whether electro hydrodynamic atomization of an ionic liquid in combination with an aqueous metal salt solution could enhance the removal of metal salts. The technique was evaluated for the removal of manganese (II), cobalt (II) calcium and sodium chloride. Good metal salt extraction was observed for the water-presaturated ionic liquid, tetraoctylammonium oleate, at an applied electrical potential of 5 kV, which was slightly lower compared to mechanical mixing, but a higher separation factor was obtained between the transition metals and the alkali and earth alkali metals
