Solvent extraction of some selected metals from an aqueous buffered solution by LIX26 extractant has been studied. The pH1/2 values (at which 50% of metal ion is extracted) for extracting different metals by 1 v/v% LIX26 extractant in methyl isobutyl ketone have been obtained. The order of extraction of metals by LIX26 extractant as a function of pH1/2 value is Pd(II)<Cu(II)<Sb(III)<Fe(II)<Co(II)<Zn(II)<Ni(II) <Pb(II)<Mn(II)<Cd(II).
