We investigated an influence of amide group in diglycolamic acid-type extractants on extraction property of metal ions. The extraction characteristics of $$N$$-dodecyldiglycolamic acid (C$$_{12}$$DGAA), with a secondary amide group, for 56 metal ions have been investigated, and compared with those of $$N,N$$-dioctyldiglycolamic acid (DODGAA) with a tertiary amide group. Compared with DODGAA, C$$_{12}$$DGAA has a poor extraction performance and separation ability for rare-earth metal ions, except for Sc(III). However, C$$_{12}$$DGAA tended to provide better extraction for relatively small-sized metal ions than DODGAA. In addition, it was found that C$$_{12}$$DGAA enables the selective removal of Hg(II) from aqueous solutions containing various divalent metal ions.
