Tetravalent metal acid (TMA) salt zirconium tungstate (ZW) has been synthesized, followed by its derivatization using ortho chlorophenol (ZWoCP). ZWoCP has been characterized for elemental analysis, spectral analysis (FTIR) and thermal analysis (TGA). Its chemical stability has been assessed in various acidic, basic and organic media. Ion exchange capacity (IEC) has been determined and distribution behaviour towards several metal ions in different electrolyte concentrations studied and a few binary separations achieved.
