What is it about?

Chromium has two major inorganic species, Cr(III) and Ct(VI). It is easy to detect chromium, but it is difficult to day which species of chromium. Aqueous biphasic extraction system can distinguish between two chromium species.

Why is it important?

The developed method can easily distinguish two chromium species.
