Liquid-liquid extraction for the removal of pertechnetate ($$^{99}$$TcO$$_{4}$$$$^{-}$$) and perrhenate (ReO$$_{4}$$$$^{-}$$) is reported using tripodal extractant $$N,N,N',N',N'',N''$$-hexa-$$n$$-octylnitrilotriacetamide (HONTA) composed of three amide groups and a tertiary amine. The extraction behavior was compared with those using alkyldiamideamines (ADAAM(Oct) and ADAAM(EH)), and the commercial amine-type extractant, trioctylamine (TOA). HONTA quantitatively extracted $$^{99}$$TcO$$_{4}$$$$^{-}$$ and ReO$$_{4}$$$$^{-}$$ in the pH range from 1.0 to 2.5 by co-extraction of protons. Extraction performance of extractants was improved in the order of HONTA $$>$$ ADAAM(Oct) $$>$$ ADAAM(EH) $$>$$ TOA. $$^{99}$$TcO$$_{4}$$$$^{-}$$ and ReO$$_{4}$$$$^{-}$$ in the extracting phase were successfully stripped using neutral aqueous solutions as the receiving phase, and the extraction ability of HONTA was maintained after five repeated uses.
