Abstract : This project is concerned with a fundamental study of methods of recovering uranium from dilute aqueous solutions by means of organic precipitants or complexing agents. In many instances, solutions of this type are encountered as effluents from processing plants or as leach solutions from low-grade uranium-bearing ores, from which it is desired to obtain the uranium in concentrated form without using excessive amount of neutralizing agents. Many of these solutions contain large amounts of extraneous ions, which in some cases may be present to the extent of several hundred times the quantity of uranium in the solution. Therefore, the effect of interfering ions on uranium extraction is being investigated.
