The goals of this work is to optimize and choose the suitable scheme, the operating factors of bulk liquid membrane (BLM) which is soybean oil-is for methylene blue (MB) elimination and rescue from aqueous resolutions. The (soybean oil)-created BLM involves of an aqueous source phase (MB), a natural film stage (soybean oil (diluent), and Tri-Octyl Amine (TOA) (carrier)) and an aqueous receiving stage (hydrochloric acid resolution (HCl)). Effects of design factors (pH of the source, and receiving stages, primary color (MB) concentration, and carrier attentiveness) of (soybean oil)-created BLM on the MB elimination and rescue from aqueous elucidations were reconnoitered and the fit factors were carefully chosen for additional revisions. Optimization of the operating factors of (soybean oil)-created BLM for extreme percentage of MB was (11 pH source and the receiving pH was 4.75 to 5.25, and 6.75 to 7.25% tri octal amine was the best proportion of the film then directed using Response Surface Methodology and the best factors were resolute. A regression model for 92 % elimination was settled and its acceptability was calculated. The trial 92 % elimination attained below the best working situations was associated with the expected one and they were originating to decide acceptably by a piece promoting R2 0.9385.
