The paper presents a study of the phenomena that take place at membrane system interfaces in the process of indole-3-acetic acid (IAA) transport. The results were obtained in a bulk liquid membrane system using trioctylamine, tributylphosphate, trioctilphosphine oxide as carriers in chloroform. The main equilibriums that take place at the interface feed phase% membrane phase were identified and the diffusion coefficient of the indole-3-acetic acid complex (DLS) and the extraction constant (Kex) were assessed. The influence of the chemical potential gradient on these parameters was considered.
