Abstract

Solvent extraction of plutonium(VI) from nitric acid (1 to 5M) into 20% and 30% TBP in dodecane saturated with uranium(VI) (0% to 80%) has been studied. For a particular nitric acid concentration, the distribution coefficient (K d ) is found to decrease with the increase in saturation of organic phase with uranium(VI). At a fixed organic phase the saturationK d increased with increase in nitric acid concentration, however, the magnitude of this increase inK d decreased with the increase in saturation.
