Phase Transfer Extraction and Adsorption Methods

  • D. Max Roundhill
Part of the Modern Inorganic Chemistry book series (MICE)


This chapter covers the principles involved in effecting the separation or preconcentration of metal ions from aqueous solution. For additional reading on the subject the reader should consult previous books and reviews that have been written on the subject.1–9 Although there has been a long term interest in metal separation in the mining industry, the recent greater emphasis on environmental concerns has led to a much broader interest in developing new selective methods for lowering the concentrations of metals that are released, and recovering those that have been discharged. In addition, the change in the political climate has resulted in the need for fewer nuclear weapons, thereby placing a greater emphasis on the removal of nuclear wastes that have been generated over the past fifty years of weapons production.
