Spectrophotometric estimation of rhenium with 5-chloro-2-hydroxythiobenzhydrazide after its extraction separation using n-octylaniline.


A solution of n-octylaniline in chloroform extracts rhenium selectively from 0.12-0.16 M nitric acid medium. Rhenium from the organic phase is backstripped with 5% aqueous ammonia solution and estimated spectrophotometrically with 5-chloro-2-hydroxythiobenzhydrazide (5-Cl-2-OHTBH). 5-Cl-2-OHTBH forms a blue complex with rhenium on heating in the acidity… (More)
