    • Abstract


      The extraction characteristics of some selected metals from an aqueous buffered solution by LIX 622, a commercial oxime extractant have been studied. The pH1/2 values for extracting different metals with 5 v/v% LIX 622 extractant in methyl isobutyl ketone (MIBK) have been obtained. The order of extraction of metals with LIX 622 extractant as a function of pH1/2 value is determined and results agree well with the order obtained using salicylaldoxime as chelating ligand for the extraction of these metals.
