In spent fuel reprocessing, distribution behavior of technetium in tri- butyl phosphate (TBP) extraction system is a very complicated. Especially, in the presence of metallic ions, i.e., U(VI), Pu(IV)and Zr(IV)in the TBP extraction system, the extraction of technetium is enhanced by the co- extraction with U, Pu and Zr. The mechanism of co-extraction mechanism of technetium is performed by exchange with nitric acid ion and per-technetate ion. In this research, we perform the structural analysis of technetium complexes in ethanol solution compared with rhenium and manganese complexes by EXAFS. Furthermore we measured some organic complexes and co-extracted complexes of technetium with uranium and zirconium extracted by TBP as compared with those of rhenium.
