Pertracion of hydrophobic organic solutes with a hydrophobic membrane is a continuous separation process, which can be used as a substitute of activated carbon. The permeability was affected by the hydrophobicity of the solute and the dissociation in the receiving phase. The pertraction of a hydrophobic solute against its concentration gradient is also possible under a concentration gradient of hydroxide ion.
