The goal of this project was to investigate the ability of the ionic liquid [bmim][PF6] to remove dissolved lead from water. The partitioning of lead from the aqueous phase to the ionic liquid 1-butyl-3-methylimadazolium hexafluorophosphate, [bmim][PF6], was analyzed with bench scale experiments. From the data, a full scale system comprised of a rapid mix tank and a gravity decanter was designed.
