Abstract

An analytical review on methods for extracting arsenic from acidic solutions using various classes of industrial and advanced organophosphorus extractants and their mixtures is given. The states of arsenic(IV) and arsenic(V) in solutions of acids are described. Comparative data on the extraction of different forms of arsenic from acidic process solutions, including cutoff electrolytes of the copper industry, are given.

Keywords:

arsenic liquid solvent extraction cutoff electrolyte tri-n-butyl phosphate (TBP) di-(2-ethylhexyl)phosphoric acid (D2EHPA) Cyanex 923 Cyanex 301
