Summary

Precipitation of uranium as uranyl iodate by adding a saturated solution of sodium iodate to a solution of uranyl acetate at a temperature of 60–65° C have been studied for a quantitative determination of uranium. The presence of nitric and phosphoric acids and free Cl- and NO3/-ions have been found to interfere with a complete and quantitative precipitation of this metal iodate.
