Separation of hafnium from zirconium by anion exchange

The zirconium and hafnium solutions were pre­ pared by dissolving the "reactor grade" metals, usually about 50 mg, in sulfuric-hydrofluoric acid solutions. The zirconium was nearly hafnium-free, but the hafnium contained several percent of zirconium.

Separation of hafnium and zirconium by liquid-liquid

Hafnium is associated with zirconium in all natural occurring ores to approximately 2 per cent by weight. Hafnium, having a high neutron cross-section, must be removed from the zirconium prior to use in nuclear reactors, Hudswell (8) has reviewed the separation of hafnium and zirconium prior to 19U9. Hafnium-free zirconium has been prepared by

(PDF) Separation of Zirconium and Hafnium: A Review

The results proved that hafnium can be effectively removed from zirconium in a Cu-Snbased alloy with the addition of the selected molten salt (CuCl2). The separation mechanism and molten salt

Separation of Zirconium and Hafnium: A Review

The current dominant zirconium production route involves pyrometallurgical ore cracking, multi-step hydrometallurgical liquid-liquid extraction for hafnium removal and the reduction of zirconium tetrachloride to the pure metal by the Kroll process.

US3966458A Separation of zirconium and hafnium

A process is provided for separating zirconium and hafnium tetrachlorides by the direct distillation from their solution in an eutectic mixture of sodium and potassium chlorides. Hafnium tetrachloride and zirconium tetrachloride are provided in adequate purity for direct introduction into reduction units for the production of the respective metals by virtue of controlled ratios of the salt

Properties and Uses of Titanium, Zirconium and Hafnium

Zirconium and Hafnium are separated by solvent extraction of their nitrates into tri n butyl phosphate or thiocyanates into methylisobutyl ketone. Alternatively the elements can be separated by ion exchange of an alcoholic solution of the tetrachlorides on silica gel columns.

Zirconium and hafnium in meteorites Wiley Online Library

Zirconium (Zr) and hafnium (Hf) are incompatible, lithophile, and refractory trace elements. They occur with very similar ionic radii and the same valence (4+). The latter feature groups them with the high field strength elements (HFSE). High field strength elements exhibit high ionic charges that make them incompatible, meaning they are not favored for inclusion in crystal lattices despite

Atomic Layer Deposition of Hafnium and Zirconium Oxides

hafnium and zirconium oxides are also thermodynami-cally stable with respect to the silicon surface with which they would be in contact in a semiconductor application. Thermal stability is an important consid- eration for a gate oxide replacement material as current CMOS and DRAM processing involves high tempera-tures (ca. 1000 °C) for several seconds. Thermodynamic considerations indicate

Process for the Separation and Purification of Hafnium and

The process according to claim 50, wherein during the removal of the zirconium and hafnium contained in the interstices, the resin is rinsed using a strong inorganic acid solution having from 7 to 12 mol of acid per litre and having a number of mol of acid per litre one of substantially identical to and greater than the aqueous solution having from 7 to 12 mol of acid per litre.

Separation of zirconium and hafnium by solvent

31/05/2011· Zircon and baddeleyite, the major minerals for zirconium, contain more than half-a-percent hafnium, which substitutes for zirconium in the mineral lattice. Zirconium metal should contain less than 100 ppm hafnium for use in nuclear reactors. For this reason, it is necessary to separate the hafnium from the zirconium, although complicated and expensive separation methods are required to remove

PROCESS FOR REMOVING HAFNIUM FROM ZIRCONIUM

Abstract. The tetrahalides of zirconium are reducible at temperatures at which the corresponding tetrahalide of hafnium undergoes no reduction. This is the basis of the method in which the tetrahalides are heated with finely divided zirconium metal (magnesium, aluminum, zinc, or other metal of sufficient oxidation reduction potential) to a temperature at which hafnium tetrahalide still remains

Pilot plant extraction of hafnium from zirconium

An extraction apparatus used to remove the hafnium-free zirconium from the extract phase into water. TBP. Tributyl phosphate. Total acidity. The total amount of standard base required to neutralize the free acid and to precipitate the hafnium and zirconium in solution. Phenolphthalein indicator was used. The total acidity was reported as normality of the solution tested. Subscripts: A. Aqueous
