Physico chemical study on extraction of uranium

Nath, Ganeswar ; Giri, R


In extraction technology, the sample pretreatment and particle disruption is an important aspects for analysis of extraction efficiency of any blended chemicals. This analytical study can be performed with the propagation of high energy ultrasound due to its characteristic property like high frequency and high wavelength comparable to atomic and subatomic dimension. This paper describes the effect of ultrasonic wave and sonication effect for extraction of uranyl nitrate with optimum blended solvent methyl iso-butyl ketone (MIBK). The result of physico-chemical properties well establishes the supporting environment for extraction of uranium (IV) from uranyl nitrate using 40% of MIBK at room temperature and for the low frequency ultrasonic wave.
