The Truex process

The Truex process uses a neutral organophosphorus bidendate extractant: n- octyl-phenyl-di-isobutyl-carbamoylmethyl-phosphine-oxide (CMPO). CMPO displays both high and low affinities for actinides(III) and lanthanides(III) at high and low nitric acid concentrations respectively. It is, then, relatively easy to obtain an An-Ln (actinide-lanthanide) mixture by the succession of extracting and stripping steps. The separation of An from Ln can then be done […]
