Synergism in the extraction of scandium

  • M. Sudersanan
Inorganic and Analytical


Synergism in the extraction of scandium by a mixture of di-2-ethylhexyl phosphoric acid and a β-diketone has been studied. The nature of the extracted species has been investigated. The effect of temperature on extraction has been studied and synergism has been explained on the basis of thermodynamic parameters of the extraction process.
