Abstract  

Solvent extraction of Cr(VI), Mo(VI), W(VI) and Hf(IV) with 1-phenyl-3-methyl-4-caproyl-pyrazolone-5 (PMCP) in methyl isobutylketone (MIBK), xylene and chloroform (CHCl3) from mineral acid solutions was studied. Chromium(VI) is not extracted from any of the acids studied (HCl, H2SO4 and HClO4). Molybdenum(VI) is quantitatively extracted by the reagent in xylene and CHCl3 from HClO4 and HNO3 solutions. It is also extracted quantitatively by the reagent in MIBK from HCl, HNO3 and H2SO4 solutions but the participation of the diluent as extractant is considerable. Tungsten(VI) is quantitatively extracted in xylene from 9M HClO4 solution. MIBK used as diluent also affects its extraction with PMCP. Hafnium(IV) is not extracted from H2SO4 solutions while it extracts more than 99% at 3M HNO3 and above. The extracted species likely are: MoO2(PMCP)2, WO2(PMCP)2 and Hf(PMCP)4, respectively.
