An improved Lewis cell has been used as an efficient method to determine the mass transfer coefficient for any ternary multi-component system. In this paper the individual mass transfer coefficients were determined for three ternary systems: water-acetone-carbon tetrachloride water-acetone-chloroform and water-acetone-toluene, using the improved Lewis cell. Criteria! equations were developed to calculate the mass transfer coefficients when one or both (organic and aqueous) phases were agitated and when solute transfer occurs in both directions.
