Abstract

The kinetics of distribution of Am(III) and Eu(III) between thenoyltrifluoroacetone (HTTA) and triphenylarsine oxide (Ph3AsO) mixture in chloroform and aqueous nitrate medium has been investigated using a stirred Lewis cell at ionic strength of 0.1M. The effect of the concentration of HTTA, Ph3AsO, H+ and NO 3 on the rate of distribution of Am(III) and Eu(III) was studied. The results were interpreted by reaction mechanisms where the rate-determining steps are the parallel reactions of Am(OH)2+ or Eu(OH)2+ with one HTTA molecule and one Ph3AsO molecule in the aqueous medium. The values at 25 °C of the rate constantkHLL′ (HL=HTTA andL′=Ph3AsO) are 1.6±0.3·106M−2·s−1 and 2.3±±0.3·108M−2·s−1 for Am(III) and Eu(III), respectively.
