Uranium(VI) was quantitatively extracted with 0.01M DB-24-crown-8 in nitrobenzene from 6 to 10M hydrochloric acid. From the organic phase uranium was stripped with 2M nitric acid and determined spectrophotometrically with PAR at 530 nm. Uranium(VI) was separated from a large number of elements in binary mixtures as well as from multicomponent mixtures. The method was extended to the analysis of uranium in geological samples and animal bone.
