Tetravalent metal acid (TMA) salt zirconium tungstate (ZW) has been synthesized, followed by its derivatization using para-chlorophenol (𝑝CP). The resulting compound is abbreviated as ZW𝑝CP. ZW𝑝CP has been characterized for elemental analysis, spectral analysis (FTIR), X-ray analysis and thermal analysis (TGA). Its chemical stability has been assessed in various mineral acids, bases and organic solvents. Ion exchange capacity (IEC) has been determined and distribution behaviour towards several metal ions in different electrolyte solutions with varying concentrations has been studied and a few binary separations achieved.
