Ion pairs of tetraphenylarsonium cation with iodide, bromide, and perrhenate anions were extracted into chloroform from mixed aqueous-organic solutions. The extraction of these ion pairs was found to increase in the presence of polar aprotic solvents in the mixed aqueous-organic phase. This effect was correlated with literature data on free energy of transfer of the Ph4As+ ion, and ascribed to ion pair/solvent and/or ion/solvent interactions in the organic phase.
