Abstract: Extensive work in the field of solvent extraction, liquid membrane transport and transport through PIM has been reported in the recent years and seldom on SLM, ELMs and composite membrane. Out of the available method of separation PIM studies have gained popularity as technological use has been made possible for large scale separation and hence their application in environmental science and hydrometallurgy are obvious. PIM &BLM have demonstrated great degree of selectivity for numerous anions and also small organic molecules. They have the advantage that extraction & de-extraction can be achieved in single run. This review provides detailed overview of all such researchers that have been carried out in past six years and for comparison finding of some earlier years.
