Description

Several extraction agents with functional group of diphenyl-carbamoylmethylphosphine oxide were synthetized and tested in the frame of EUROPART project for actinoids partitioning from nitric acid solutions. Functional groups were chemically bonded with a platform of tert-butylcalix[4]arene, O-pentylcalix[4]arene, and cobalt bis(dicarbollide) cluster ion to enhance extraction properties. The extraction agents were used for preparation of composite materials with polyacrylonitrile (PAN) as a binding polymer to study behavior of these composites in column chromatography. They were compared with CMPO-PAN composite material prepared with neat octyl(phenyl)-N,N'-diisobutylcarbamoylmethylphosphine oxide compound (CMPO). Uptake kinetics was studied with europium as an analog of americium. Weight distribution coefficients (Dg) of europium, americium, plutonium, uranium, and neptunium were determined in nitric acid solutions (0.01 - 5 mol/L) in the presence of sodium nitrate (0.1 mol/L). Europium extraction isotherms from 3M HNO3 solution were used for capacity determination.
