Extraction of Uranium from the Raffinate of Egyptian Phosphoric Acid Purification Using Aliquat336 Extractant in One Step

Abstract This paper describes the extraction of uranium from raffinate phosphoric acid purified using aliquatR336 in kerosene as a selective extracting agent of uranium, Several factors were studied for the maximum extraction of uranium. mainly aliquatR336 concentration, shaking time, aqueous/organic phase ratio, the diluents effect and temperature on the extraction, Effect of different stripping agents were investigated , High uranium extraction yields 98.4% were obtained ,The uranium is finally converted to a high purity using precipitation with hydrogen peroxide, Finally a technological flow sheet is elucidated on the basis of the obtained results.
