Enantioselective Liquid-Liquid Extraction (ELLE) is a technology for chiral separation that has great potential for application on all scales, from analytical to industrial production scale. Although many chiral selectors are available for techniques such as chromatography, they are usually not applicable to ELLE. By discussing recent technological advances, it is demonstrated that the technology is moving towards maturity for commercial application. Multistage countercurrent extraction models were used for predicting extraction per formances for two different systems
