Extraction and Determination of Thorium and its Application on Geologic Samples using Trioctyl Phosphine Oxide

Abstract

The extraction of thorium from aqueous solution was studied using the organic extractant trioctyl phosphine oxide (TOPO) dissolved in cyclohexane. The parameters affecting the extraction, determination and stripping of Th (IV) included type of extractant, shaking time, extractant concentration, pH, aqueous to organic phase ratio (A/O), temperature, certain… (More)
