Solvent extraction of iron(III) was carried out with 2.5x10-2 M of Tri methylamine in chloroform from hydrochloric, sulphuric and nitric acid solutions. After extraction iron(III) was stripped from the organic phase with 1.0 M H2SO4 and was determined using AAS method. The extractions were quantitative with hydrochloric and nitric acid systems and 95% from sulphuric acid solutions employed in the study. Based on the results obtained, estimation of iron in natural and industrial samples has been attempted.
