Liquid membranes prepared using an anionic surfactant (Aerosol OT) as carrier and oleyl alcohol as organic solvent loaded on a commercial support (Celgard 2500) were evaluated for extraction of amino sugars, amino acids and dipeptides from solution at laboratory and pilot scale. Feed pH influenced extraction of amino acids and peptides but had little effect with amino sugars, increase in carrier concentration improved extraction of amino sugars but not amino acids and peptides. The pilot hollow-fibre membrane extracted about 90% of solutes in eight hours.
