This work describes the rapid and facile sonochemical preparation of relatively stable Pu(V) solutions in the millimolar range free from the admixtures of the other oxidation states of plutonium.
Separation of rare earth compounds from water into an organic phase in practical cases requires the use of specific ion binding ligands in high concentrations, that form a blocking layer above an ion concentration threshold, experimentally characterized.
Substitution of extracting molecules with a long perfluoroalkyl chain was performed in order to modulate the weak intermolecular interactions and the supramolecular ordering of an organic system employed to recover metals of interest during liquid-liquid extraction processes.
