The extraction mechanism of Zinc from aqueous solution with D2EHPA (Di-2-Ethylhexyl Phosphoric Acid) dissolved in Kerosene was studied by the single drop method. The effect of the concentrations of reactant species on the extraction rate, Zinc and hydrogen ion in the continuous phase and D2EHPA in the dispersed, was studied for the drop rise period by the experiment. Then a theoretical analysis on the basis of Handlos-Baron modle was carried out. It becomes clear that the extraction rate was controlled by the neutral complex forming reaction at the drop surface from both analysises. From effect of the concentrations of species on the reaction rate, the extraction rate at the drop surface is considered to be as follows. $${\gamma}_{pn}=9.42{\times}10^{-7}\;\frac{[Zn^{2+}][(HR)_2]^{3/2}}{[H^+]^{3/2}}$$
