Am looking for a procedure; may I ask if there is a publication of test methods and standards in the solvent extraction industrial?If not, may I ask how I can be sure of the reliability of my tests?

There are some simulation methods such as "funnel method". You can use them for your tests.

The test methods and standards for SX reagents are different, Chelation extractants, Ion-Pair extractants, Organic Acid Extractants and so on. You need to figure out which kind of SX reagent can work in your test. And then find test methods and standard test procedure.
