Abstract

Synergistic extraction of Th(IV) from perchlorate medium by mixtures of HTTA and TBP was studied. These studies include the effect of the ionic strength, temperature and the diluents on the extraction. Ionic strength was found to influence the extraction of Th(TTA)4 and Th(TTA)4·TBP whereas the adduct formation in the organic phase was almost unaffected. Increase of temperature resulted in a decrease of the extraction of Th(IV). The stability of the adduct was found to decrease in the order, cyclohexane > benzene > chloroform.
