Solvent extraction studies using tetracycline as a complexing agent. XIII. Application of tetracycline for separation of interfering elements in activation analysis of uranium

  • R. Petrauskas

Tetracycline in solution of benzyl alcohol was used as an extracting agent to separate uranium from interfering elements in the determination of uranium and of isotopic ratio235U/238U by neutron activation analysis. Separation gives a recovery of 97% for uranium and the interferences from matrices of pitchblende and monazite are eliminated.
