Abstract  

The extraction behavior of Am3+ and UO22+ is investigated employing chloroform solution of 18-crown-6 as the organic phase and picrate solution at pH 3.0 as the aqueous phase. In contrast to the commonly observed behavior, the extraction of Am3+ is preferred to that of UO22+. This unusual separation behavior is investigated as a function of several variable parameters such as crown ether concentration, picric acid concentration, inert electrolyte concentration, nature of diluent etc. Thermodynamic parameters are also evaluated.
