The invention relates to the field of chemistry of organophosphorus compounds and hydrometallurgy. It concerns a method of extracting - sinergetnoy mixture:

Tris(2-ethylhexyl) phosphate (T-2)

and di(2-ethylhexyl)phosphoric acid (D-2)

in a molar ratio (0.5-1.25):1.0 and how to use it in hydrometallurgy of non-ferrous, rare earth, uranium metal and the processing of spent nuclear fuel.

Known organophosphorus extractants: tributyl phosphate (TBP), (C4H9O)3RO and di(2-ethylhexyl)phosphoric acid (D2EGFK) (D-2), which are widely used in hydrometallurgy [1-3].

The closest analogue to the invention, the essential features, intended to extractant and the method of its production is [7] SU 480716 (IPC C 01 F 9/08, publ. 03.11.1975), which describes the extractant for the extraction of metals containing di(2-ethylhexyl)phosphoric acid and method for producing an extractant for the extraction of metals containing di(2-ethylhexyl)phosphoric acid is added to the alcohol of phosphorus oxychloride. However, as returned by this method extractant does not contain trialkylphosphine that affects a relatively low capacity for the extracted metal. In addition, the method malotehnologichen.

Nedoschitaetsya also the need for prior individual components TBP and D-2 specific chemical processes, and low distribution coefficient and low capacity to retrieve the element.

The prototype disadvantages are eliminated by the invention.

The technical result of the invention is to develop a single-stage high-tech way of getting sinergetnogo extractant and the increase in the separation factor and capacity on the extracted metal 20-25%. The technical result is achieved in that the extractant for the extraction of metals containing di(2-ethylhexyl)phosphoric acid, further comprises Tris(2-ethylhexyl)phosphate in a ratio of components (0.5-1.25):1 in moles, and what it is used for the extraction of non-ferrous, rare and precious metals and uranium. Also a method of extracting to extract metals containing di(2-ethylhexyl)phosphoric acid, comprising adding to the spirit of phosphorus oxychloride and wherein the 2-ethylhexanol was added phosphorus oxychloride at a ratio (4.5-5.1):2.0, and when the settings defined by the achievement of the complete passage of the reaction, after which the reaction mixture is maintained until complete removal of the formed hydrogen chloride, then to the mixture was added 1 mol of water, maintain the mixture to complete the hydrolysis, the mixture is then washed and the aqueous layer was separated from the organic residue containing di(2-ethylhexyl)phospho is strong acid and Tris(2-ethylhexyl)phosphate, to 2-ethylhexanol was added phosphorus oxychloride at a pressure of 50-70 mm Hg, and temperature (10±5)°C for 1-1 .5 hours; the reaction mixture is maintained at a pressure of 50-70 mm Hg, and temperature (10±5)°C for 2-3 hours; the reaction mixture after aging at the temperature of (10±5)°C is maintained at a temperature of 45-55°C for 2-3 hours; washing the reaction mixture performed with saline reagent.

After washing the reaction mixture 10-20% sodium chloride solution and separation of the aqueous layer in the organic residue, sinergetny extractant (T-2 D-2) in a molar ratio (0.5-1.25):1.0. Output (90-95)%. The finished product containing 1-5% of mono(2-ethylhexyl)phosphoric acid used in the extraction process.

Getting hold of the extractant in the interaction of 2-ethylhexanol with phosphorus oxychloride according to the equation:

A characteristic feature of the synthesis sinergetnogo extractant is that, by adjusting the ratio in moles of 2-ethylhexanol and phosphorus oxychloride, you can get sinergetnuyu mixture of T-2 D-2 different composition in moles(1:1), (1:2), (1:3). This is important in the sense that, for example, extraction separation of Co and Ni, a mixture of 10-30% solution of D-2 and 5% solution of T-2 in kerosene (p.166 [6]). The extraction of vanadium, a mixture of 6% solution of D-2 and 3% solution of the T-2 in kerosene, separating it from the uranium, iron, molybdenum (page 291 [6]). Extraction separation of uranium, thorium, rare earths, iron, calcium, aluminium successfully implemented extractant 0.1 M D-2 and 0.1 M TBP in kerosene (str [6]). Use sinergetnoy mixture of T-2 D-2 in a ratio of 0.1 M in kerosene allows you to achieve similar results.

When comparative experiments on the extraction of used D-2 TBP (analogues), sinergetnuyu mixture of D-2 + TBP (str.257 [6]) and sinergetnuyu mixture of D-2 + T-2 (the subject matter). Extractant solutions were prepared on lighting kerosene "KO-30" (organic phase).

For the extraction of uranium used a solution of the following composition: H2SO40.1-300 g/l, HNO30-30 g/l, Fe3+0-10 g/l,0.8-30 g/l (aqueous phase). In the course of study is determined by the extraction of uranium and the separation of uranium/iron (III).

The extraction was performed in a countercurrent mode in 6-chamber mixer-settler (volume mixing chamber 0.5 l, sucky camera 2.5 l, the performance by the sum of the phases in all cases was 10.5 l/h). In all cases, the correlation of phases In:0=4:3.

Extraction isotherm were removed using a cross flow. The speed of separation of phases was determined by the rate of release of the aqueous phase after stopping the mixer.

Uranium extraction isotherm shown in the drawing, the concentration ur the a and iron (III) - saturated organic phase, and the speed of the separation are shown in table 1.

40.14 M D-2 + 0.14 M T-220.30.029.4·10432UTS.

As follows from the data of the drawing and table 1, in binary mixtures with D-2 Tris(2-ethylhexyl)phosphate significantly improves the technological characteristics of the sinergetnogo extractant - capacity organic phase uranium increases by 20-30%, the separation factor of U/Fe also increases by 20%, in addition, improves rasslaivanie, the formation of the "third" phase of extraction is not noted in either of these systems.

The methodology and results of experiments on uranium Stripping and getting U2About3.

Uranium from saturated samples of the extractant was extragonadal 10% (NH4)2CO3+ 3% NH4NO3(O:b=3:1, T=35°, τ=1 hour). After Stripping, the phases were separated in a separating funnel, the crystals ammoniyuraniltrikarbonata (AUTKA) was separated from the mother liquor and washed reextracted with a solution, which was pre-saturated with uranyl nitrate to the equilibrium concentration.

The degree of Stripping was calculated by the residual concentration of uranium in the organic phase. For all investigated extractants value of the degree of Stripping was in the range of 99.2-99.6%.

Samples washed AUTKA was progulivali at T=700° (τ=1 hour), the resulting oxide-uranium oxide was analyzed for phosphorus and iron, as these elements are the main limiting impurities in the U3O8- iron in large quantities is always present in industrial product solutions, a source of phosphorus can be themselves and organophosphorus extractants. The results of analyses of samples of nitrous oxide, are presented in table 2.

Table 2. The content is the W of the main limiting impurities in the nitrous oxide-uranium.
ComponentRequirements TUThe content in samples
Phosphorus, %<0-08<0.01
Iron, %<0-03<0.01

Thus, the tested extractants provide U3O8the required degree of purity. Tris-2-etilgeksilfosfat on the technological quality is much greater than TBP. Mixed extractant D-2 + T-2 has a capacity of uranium 20-30% more than the D-2+TBP, as well as increased selectivity and recovery. The speed of separation is not worse than in the system with D-2+TBP.

In all cases, the result of Stripping turns oxide-uranium oxide required degree of purity for basic limited type impurities.

When removing VANADIS iron-foundry sludge production and oil fly ash, uranium-vanadium ores, titanium-iron magnesite produced sulfuric acid solution. As a result of heating them with powdered iron vanadium goes into 4-valent state.

The extraction was carried out in six stages of mixer settler, applying a solution of 6% D 2% and 3% TBP in kerosene (str.291 [6]) (prototype). Reextraction are 4 stages of a sulfuric acid concentration of 140 g/l at a temperature of 38-50°s Reextract contains 55-65 g/l V2O5. Vanadium is transferred in the form of hexavanadate sodium (red cake)that the ignition is switched to 98% by vanadium.

Using this process sinergetnoy mixture of T-2 - D-2 gives similar results.
