A study on the synergistic extraction of uranium(VI) from nitric acid media with double-chelating agent systems 1-phenyl-3-methyl-4-benzoyl-pyrazolone-5 (PMBP) plus thenoyltrifluoroacetone (TTA), and 1-phenyl-3-methyl-4-benzoyl-pyrazolone-5 plus 1-phenyl-3-methyl-4-trifluoroacetyl-pyrazolone-5 (PMTFP) is described. Some synergistic effects have been observed. The experimental results suggest that the composition of synergistic complex species is UO2PMBP·TTA and UO2PMBP·PMTFP, respectively. The equilibrium constants for these synergistic extractions are calculated by three methods and the mechanism and the regularity of extraction are discussed as well.
