We have started studying sulphate-complex formation of a transactinide element, seaborgium (Sg). In this study, we report on the extraction behavior of carrier-free radioisotopes $$^{93m}$$Mo and $$^{181}$$W which are lighter homologs of Sg, from aqueous H$$_{2}$$SO$$_{4}$$ solution with amine extractant, Aliquat336, dissolved in toluene by a batch method. These radioisotopes were produced in the $$^{nat}$$Zr($$alpha$$,${it 2}$)$$^{93m}$$Mo and $$^{181}$$Ta(${it d}$,x${it n}$)$$^{181}$$W reactions at the RIKEN K70 AVF cyclotron. Results of the extraction experiments showed that the distribution ratios of Mo and W increase sharply above ~3.0 M H$$_{2}$$SO$$_{4}$$. Based on the slope analysis, it was indicated that anionic sulphate-complex of [MO$$_{2}$$(SO$$_{4}$$)$$_{2}$$]$$^{2-}$$ (M = Mo, W) are formed in $$>$$ 5 M H$$_{2}$$SO$$_{4}$$. These results suggest that the present system is applicable to the extraction of Sg.
