This project focuses on the application of protein extraction in aqueous salt system. The objective is to simulate a system which contains polymer and salt which will subsequently be used to extract protein. This system is called as Aqueous Two-Phase Extraction System (ATPES). ATPES is a liquid-liquid extraction system where the extraction takes place when it reaches liquid-liquid equilibrium (LLE). This system consists of water, polymer and salt. Both polymer and aqueous is allowed to attain equilibrium where it forms two clear phase. The formation of two phase depends on parameters such as pH value of system, temperature and concentration level. The model used in this thermodynamic approach is Flory-Huggins model [1,2]. Flory-Huggins model is a mathematical model of the thermodynamics of polymer solutions which takes account of the great dissimilarity in molecular sizes in adapting the usual expression for the entropy of mixing [1,2]. This project is a simulation-based project using MATLAB. This software enables the author to find possible combination of ATPES and to optimize protein recovery. First of all, the author needs to learn and master using MATLAB software. Then some literature reviews need to be performed to select the right ATPES. At the end of the project the results of this project will be compared with experimental result which will be obtained through literature review.
