    ABSTRACT: A new reagent (2-ethylhexyl-3-pentadecylphenyl) phosphoric acid (EPPA = HR) was synthesized from cardanol (I, 37300-39-5) and was used to investigate the extraction behaviour of lanthanum(III), europium(III) and lutetium(III) from hydrochloric acid solutions. The species extracted were found to be Ln(HR(2))(3) (where Ln = La(III) or Eu(III) or Lu(III)). The extraction behaviour of the above lanthanides has also been compared with yttrium and other rare earths. It was observed that the extraction increases with increase in atomic number of rare earths. In addition, the extraction efficiency of EPPA has also been compared with well known acidic organophosphorus extractants like di-2-ethylhexyl phosphoric acid (DEHPA), 2-ethylhexyl-mono-2-ethylhexyl phosphoric acid (EHEHPA).

    ABSTRACT: A new reagent isopropyl-3-pentadecylphenyl phosphoric acid (IPPA = HR) was synthesized from cardanol [I-37, 300-39-5] and was used to investigate the extraction behaviour of lanthanum(III), europium(III) and lutetium(III) from HCl and HClO4 solutions into toluene. The species extracted were found to be Ln(HR2)3 (where Ln = La(III) or Eu(III) or Lu(III). The extraction behaviour of above lanthanides has also been compared with yttrium and other rare earths. It was observed that the extraction increases with increase of atomic number of rare earths. In addition the extraction efficiency of IPPA has been compared with well known acidic organophosphorous extractants like di-2-ethylhexyl phosphoric acid (DEHPA) and 2-ethylhexyl-mono-2-ethylhexyl phosphoric acid (EHEHPA).

    ABSTRACT: The extraction equilibrium data of lutetium from sodium succinate solution with Aliquat 336 in benzene is systematically investigated. The aqueous phase metal complexation and polymerization in the organic phase are taken into account in obtaining extraction coefficients, stability constants, hydrolysis constants, solubility product, and extraction constants. A thermodynamic model of the above equilibrium extraction data is developed for use in computer simulation of the extraction process. The correlations are based on chemical mass action principles in which the metal complexation in the aqueous phase, polymerization in the organic phase, precipitation in the aqueous phase, and aqueous phase activity coefficients are considered. Extraction behavior of other lanthanides from a succinate medium is also discussed.
