Abstract The carrier activity of calixarene containing imidazole groups towards the facilitated transport of palladium(II) through dichloromethane bulk liquid membrane has been studied. The optimum transport conditions were established by the studies on the effect of pH, feed concentration, carrier concentration, receiver phase concentration and transport time. A solution of 1M hydrochloric acid (HCl) served as receiving phase for maximum transport of the metal ion. Maximum transport efficiency was observed for Pd(II) ion when it was present in the concentration of 10(-3)M and the transport efficiency after 24h was found as 95\%. Copyright © 2012 Elsevier B.V.
