Abstract

The possibility of using sorption by sulfocationite in order to extract zirconium from nitrate and sulfuric acidic solutions has been shown. The sorption of zirconium from sulfuric solutions is much more effective than from nitrate solutions. Zirconium can be desorbed by concentrated solutions of ammonium salts; at the same time, ammonium sulfate is a more effective desorbing solution when compared with ammonium nitrate. The acidification of desorbate based on ammonium nitrate decreases the efficiency of the desorption of zirconium.
