A selective method has been developed for the determination of traces of cobalt in different matrices by the sensitive technique of thermal neutron activation analysis employing radiochemical separation and substoichiometric extraction of Co/II/ with iso-nitrosobenzoylacetone into chloroform.
A method based on solvent extraction has been developed for the radiochemical separation of Zn/II/ from other elements employing 1,2,3-benzotriazole as a complexing agent and n-heptanol as an extractant. Optimum conditions for the extraction have been established. The effect of various anions and cations on the extraction coefficient value of Zn/II/ has been studied. The stoichiometry of the metal to reagent determined by the method of substoichiometric extraction and slope-ratio method was found to be 12.
A rapid and selective method has been developed for the extraction of Co/II/ with isonitrosobenzoylacetone into chloroform. The effect of various parameters on the extraction coefficient value such as effect of pH, time of equilibration, effect of various cations and anions have been evaluated. The stoichiometry of metal to reagent determined by the method of substoichiometric extraction was found to be 12. It was further supported by the slope ratio method.
