In this study, the present status and future trends of copper solvent extraction has been reviewed by focusing on the use of various types of extractants. Problems commonly encountered in the earlier investigations have been reviewed. Some new investigations for special cases of copper separation from other associated metals are also summarized. Recently developed extraction systems have also been discussed. The extraction and separation studies of copper from different sources under varying experimental conditions have been discussed. Scope for further research in copper solvent extraction has been suggested.
Key words: Copper / solvent extraction / extractants / separation
