The foam separation of zirconium(IV) from aqueous solutions

  • 31 Accesses

Summary

The foam separation of zirconium(IV) from chloride solutions has been investigated over the 1.8–12 pH range using sodium lauryl sulphate or cetyl(trimethyl)ammonium bromide as collectors. The effects of gas flow rate, bubbling time, collector and zirconium(IV) concentrations, ageing of the metal ion, and ionic strength have been studied and the results are discussed in relation to the hydrolytic behaviour of zirconium(IV). Under optimum conditions,ca. 99.5% removal can be achieved.
