The solvent extraction of divalent iron, cobalt, copper and zinc from perchlorate medium of constant ionic strength (0.1 H+, NaClO4) into a mixture of thenoyltrifluoroacetone (HTTA) and dibenzylamine (DBA) in chloroform has been studied. The extraction of the different cations were found to increase by more than 103 order of magnitude in presence of DBA. Slope analysis of the extraction results assumed a general formula of M(TTA)2·DBA for the extractable adduct. A stability order of Fe(TTA)2·DBA>Co(TTA)2 ·DBA>Zn(TTA)2·DBA>Cu(TTA)2·DBA has been decumented.
