The mechanism of indium/III/ extraction by trilaurylamine hydrochloride

The extraction behaviour of In/III/ from HCl solutions by trilaurylamine has been described. The dependence of extraction on acidity, salting agent, metal and extractant concentrations, was investigated. The proposed extraction mechanism, from loading data and slope analyses, proved that besides the known 2∶1 complex /TLAH+ InCl 4 . TLAH+Cl/, the so far unknown 3∶1 complex TLAH+InCl 4 . /TLAH+Cl/ is formed too.
