Membrane processes are used in various felds such as the environment, agriculture and diﬀerent industrial sectors. These clean techniques are often adopted for directed processes such as treatment, recovery, valorization and separation. In this review article, the theoretical principles and the diﬀerent classifcations of liquid membranes, such as supported liquid membranes are discussed. Afterward, the mechanism of facilitated transport, and fnally advantages and disadvantages of this technology are discussed, comprehensively.
• Principle and classifcation criteria of membranes
• Diﬀerent type of liquid membranes
• Mechanism of facilitated transport on liquid membranes
