Title: Structural insights into the multinuclear speciation of tetravalent cerium in the tri-n-butyl phosphate–n-dodecane solvent extraction system

Abstract

Macroscopic phase behaviors in the liquid–liquid extraction are explained by microscopic, reverse micellar fluid structures containing tetranuclear Ce(iv) clusters revealed by use of X-ray spectroscopy and scattering of the light and dense organic phases.
