Short Communication


Hydrous zirconium oxide paper has been prepared by treating Whatman No. 1 chromatographic paper strips with 0.1 mol dm−3 zirconium oxychloride and 6% aqueous ammonia. Rf values of 28 metal ions in different aqueous solvent systems are reported. Based on the behaviour, 59 binary and/or ternary metal ion seperations of analytical and radiochemical interest have been successfully achieved. The separations are very rapid and accomplished within 20 minutes.
