A new bifunctional extractant named phenyl-N,N-dibutylcarbamoylmethyl sulfoxide (PCMSO) is synthesized and characterized in
order to investigate its selectivity and capability in the extraction from acidic nitrate media in nuclear reprocessing. The
extraction of uranium (VI) with PCMSO in toluene has been studied at various concentrations of nitric acid, extractant and
salting-out agent (LiNO3). The mechanism of extraction is discussed in the light of the results obtained. The extracted species has also been investigated
using FT-IR spectrometry. The related thermodynamic functions were calculated. The IR spectral study was also made of the

The extraction of U(VI) from nitric acid solutions with di-(1-methylheptyl) phosphoric acid has been investigated. The dependence on nitric acid concentration, DMHPA concentration and temperature has been considered and the infra-red spectra of extracted species and extractant were recorded. The mechanism of extraction is discussed in the light of the results obtained.

The extraction of uranium(VI) from nitric acid by N-octanoylpiperidine (OPPD) in toluene has been investigated at varying concentrations of nitric acid, extractant, salting-out agent LiNO3 and at different temperatures. The mechanism of extraction is discussed in the light of the results obtained. The extracted species have also been investigated using FT-IR spectrometry. The related thermodynamic functions were calculated.
A new extractant, N-octanoyl-2-methylpiperidine (OMPPD) has been synthesized. The extraction of U(VI) with N-octanoyl-2-methylpiperidine (OMPPD) in nitric acid has been studied. The dependence of the partition reaction of U(VI) on the concentrations of nitric acid, extractant, salting-out agent LiNO3, and temperature has been studied. In the light of the results, the extraction mechanism is discussed. The synergistic extracted complexes may be presented as UO2(NO3)2(OMPPD)2 . The related thermodynamic functions were calculated.

N-dodecanoylpyrrolidine (DOPOD) was synthesized and used for the extraction of nitric acid and uranyl(VI) ions from nitric
media in toluene. The effects of nitric acid concentration, extractant concentration, temperature, salting-out agent (LiNO3) have been studied. The main adduct of DOPOD and HNO3 is HNO3·DOPOD. The complex formation of uranyl(VI) ion, nitrate ion and DOPOD (UO2(NO3)2·2DOPOD) as extracted species are further confirmed by IR spectra and the values of thermodynamic parameters have also been

The extraction performance of uranium(VI) from nitric acid with N-octanoylpiperidine (OPPD) in series of diluents has been investigated. The dependence of extraction distribution on the concentrations of aqueous nitric acid and OPPD and also the temperature has been studied. The experimental results showed that the decreasing order of extraction ability of OPPD is as follows: benzene, dimethyl benzene (DMB), toluene, 1,2-dichloroethene, n-octane, carbon tetrachloride, cyclohexane, chloroform. It cannot be interpreted only on the basis of polarity of the diluents. The interaction between extractant or extracted species and diluent is discussed.

The mechanism of solvent extraction of uranium(VI) from highly concentrated chloride solution with a quaternary ammonium salt,
benzyloctadecyldimethylammonium chloride (BODMAC, R4NCl), dissolved in chloroform was studied. The compositions of the extracted species were R4N.UO2Cl3 and (R4N)2.UO2Cl4. The extraction process is exothermic (ΔH° = -8.42±0.54 KJ/mol). Kex1 and Kex2 are calculated to be (3.62±0.55).10-2 and (1.06±0.17).103, respectively. In the extraction process, a W/O uranium(VI) rich emulsion solution has been formed between the organic and
aqueous phases, its volume increased with the increase of BODMAC in the system. The influences of temperature, NaCl, MgCl2 and MgSO4 concentrations on the extraction equilibrium were also studied.
