Crosslinked-gel microcapsules immobilized small droplets of phenolic oxime extractant, 1-(2-hydroxy-5-nonylphenyl) ethanone oxime (LIX84-I) were prepared from O/W emulsion using falling-drop method followed by crosslinking of sodium alginate (Na-Alg) by Ca2+ ion and crosslinking of polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) by glutaraldehyde. A lot of fine droplets of LIX84-I were successfully immobilized in the microcapsules. The LIX84-I contents in the microcapsules increased with an increase in the LIX84-I amounts to the aqueous phase. The maximum extracted amounts of Cu(II) increased linearly with the LIX84-I contents with a slope of 1/2 which means two molecules of LIX84-I react with one Cu(II) ion. The extraction rate was not significantly affected by the size of the extractant droplets dispersed in the microcapsules. The microcapsules could be used repeatedly for the extraction and back-extraction of Cu(II).
