This paper reports the cloud point extraction (CPE) extraction behaviour of 99Mo in non-ionic Triton X-114 (TX-114), sodiumdodecyl sulphate (SDS) + TX-114 and sodium diethyldithiocarbamate (DDTC) + TX-114. The high extraction of 99Mo observed in all the CPE systems in pH 5 or less. The extent of extraction was almost unchanged with addition of SDS and DDTC in TX-114. Extraction behaviour was also studied in presence of common salts. It was observed the presence of salts dramatically decreased the amount of molybdenum extraction in the surfactant-rich phase.
