Extraction studies of lanthanide(III) ions with ${it N,N'}$-dimethyl-${it N,N'}$-diphenylpyridine-2,6-dicarboxyamide(DMDPhPDA) from nitric acid solutions

The distribution ratios of lanthanides with ${it N,N'}$-dimethyl-${it N,N'}$-diphenylpyridine-2,6-dicarboxyamide(DMDPhPDA) from 1-5M nitric acid solutions were determined and the extraction mechanism was discussed on the basis of the slope analyses of acid and ligand concentration dependencies and lanthanide patterns (variation of the distribution ratio as a function of ionic radius). The lanthanide extractions were explained through two mechanisms from the standpoint of the formation of the extracted complex as follows: (1) the formation of inner-sphere complex with two DMDPhPDA molecules for light lanthanides in the extraction from HNO$$_{3}$$ less than 3M, and (2) the formation of outer-sphere complex with the third DMDPhPDA molecules in addition to the inner-sphere complex in the extraction of light lanthanides from HNO$$_{3}$$ more than 3M, and those of heavy lanthanides from 1-5M HNO$$_{3}$$ solutions. Nitric acid concentration is more influential than the ligand concentration in the formation of outer-sphere complex.
