The remarkable enhancements of the extraction efficiency of Am(III) and Eu(III) and the separation efficiency between Am(III) and Eu(III) were achieved through changes in counter anions and/or organic solvents, in the solvent extraction of Am(III) and Eu(III) with a tripodal ligand, tris(2-pryidylmethyl)amine (tpa). The separation factor (Am/Eu), which is defined as the ratio between the distribution ratios of Am(III) and Eu(III), ranged from 10 to 50 using various combinations of counter anions and organic solvents. The extraction equilibria of Am(III) and Eu(III) with tpa in 1,2-dichloroethane were determined in detail through slope analyses in order to elucidate the mechanism of separation and identify the extracted species.
