Title: URANIUM PARTITION BETWEEN TRI-n-BUTYL PHOSPHATE AND AQUEOUS URANYL NITRATE SOLUTIONS. LABORATORY INVESTIGATION

Abstract

Various reagents were added to an aqueous uranyi nitrate solution to learn their effect upon uranium partition into tri-n-butyl phosphate (TBP) from an aqueous solution. Results showed that uranium partition from an aqueous solution into TBP was aided to a greater extent by adding increasing amounts of nitrate salts to a minimum quantity of nitric acid than by adding increasing amounts of nitric acid alone. The presence of anions (e.g., sulfate) which complex the uranyl ion in aqueous solution has a detrimental effect on uranium partition from aqueous solution into TBP, necessitating a higher concentration of hydrogen ion than in the absence of such anions.
