Hydrophilic 2,9-bis-triazolyl-1,10-phenanthroline ligands enable selective Am(III) separation: a step further towards sustainable nuclear energy

Author affiliations

Abstract

The first hydrophilic, 1,10-phenanthroline derived ligands consisting of only C, H, O and N atoms for the selective extraction of Am(III) from spent nuclear fuel are reported herein. One of these 2,9-bis-triazolyl-1,10-phenanthroline (BTrzPhen) ligands combined with a non-selective extracting agent, was found to exhibit process-suitable selectivity for Am(III) over Eu(III) and Cm(III), providing a clear step forward.
