The liquid-liquid extraction behavior of uranium(VI) from aqueous nitric acid with bis(octylsulfinyl)ethane (BOSE) in 1,1,2,2-tetrachloroethane
has been studied over a wide range of conditions. The extracted species appears to be UO2(NO3)2·2BOSE. It was found that the extraction increases with increasing nitric acid concentration up to 7 mol/l and then decreased.
Extraction also increases with increasing extractant concentration. The influence of temperature and salting-out agent concentration
on the extraction equilibrium and stripping of uranium(VI) was also investigated and the enthalpy of the extraction reaction
