The technical aspects of the membrane extraction of a compound either from aqueous phase into apolar organic solvent phase or from the apolar phase to the aqueous one and the enzymatic conversion of the solute in a multiphase enzyme membrane reactor are considered. The application possibilities, the selection aspects of membrane material as well as the solvent phase, the water content and its control, the method of the enzyme immobilisation and the operation of the extraction/reaction system are discussed.
