Cobalt Ion Extraction by 2-Ethylhexyl Phosphoric Acid Mono-2-Ethylhexyl Ester Microemulsion Saponified
The extraction process of cobalt using microemulsion system saponified with P507 as extracting agent was studied. The influences of initial concentration, the concentration of P507, initial pH, the extracting time and the volume ratio of organic phase to water phase on extraction coefficient were also studied. Experimental results show that the saponification microemulsion system using P507 as extractant is thermodynamic stable, and it can separate cobalt better. The optimum conditions were achieved as: the initial concentration is 0.04 mol/L, pH is 2; The concentration of P507 is 6%, extraction time is 6 min; The volume ratio of organic phase to water phase is 1.5:1.
