    • Abstract


      The extraction of ammine complexes of Cu2+, Cd2+, Ni2+, Co2+ and Zn2+ by synthesised manganese, nickel and zinc silicates has been studied at different pH and ionic concentrations in the external solution. It has been found that the uptake of the metal ion Co2+, Cu2+ and Zn2+ increases with increase in pH of the external solution, attains a maximum and then decreases. However, the uptake for Cd2+ and Ni2+ increases continuously. The qA values of all the silicates increases with the increase in the concentration of the exchanging ion and its order for the investigated metal ions is Ni2+ < Co2+ < Cd2+ < Zn2+ < Cu2+.
