Title: RECOVERY OF URANIUM BY AROMATIC DITHIOCARBAMATE COMPLEXING

Abstract

A selective complexing organic solvent extraction process is presented for the separation of uranium values from an aqueous nitric acid solution of neutron irradiated thorium. The process comprises contacting the solution with an organic aromatic dithiccarbamaie and recovering the resulting urancdithiccarbamate complex with an organic solvent such as ethyl acetate.
