Study of Cs extraction in an ionic liquid system using a common anion in both aqueous and ionic liquid phases

The effect of Tf2N−, as a common anion in aqueous and ionic liquid (IL) phases, on Cs extraction in the IL system was investigated using C2mimTf2N as an IL and DCH18C6 as an extractant. The “common anion (Tf2N−) effect” operated via the movement of Cs+·Tf2N− from the aqueous phase into the IL phase by extraction in the form of Cs+·extractant·Tf2N−, without any traditional cation exchange. The extraction product was recovered as a precipitate using a small amount of IL, which facilitated precipitation via supersaturation.
