Role of the association of ions in ionic liquid/molecular solvent mixtures onto metal extraction

Abstract

Several mixtures of butyl acetate (BA) and an ionic liquid (1-methyl-3-octylpyrrolidinium bis(trifluoromethylsulfonyl)imide, [C1C8Pyrro][NTf2], 1-octyl-pyridinium bis(trifluoromethylsulfonyl)imide, [C8Pyr][NTf2]), 1-butyl-3-methyl-imidazolium bis(trifluoromethylsulfonyl)imide, [C1C4Im][NTf2] or 1-octyl-3-methyl-imidazolium bis(trifluoromethylsulfonyl)imide, [C1C8Im][NTf2]) have been characterized by measuring density, viscosity and conductivity at 298.15 K, from pure BA to pure ILs. The ionicity of these mixtures has been determined on the basis of impedancemetry and NMR. ATR-FTIR was used to examine the interactions between ions. In parallel, Pt (IV) was extracted from acidic aqueous phase towards mixtures of BA and [C1C8Im][NTf2] over the whole composition range. A drastic modification in the distribution coefficient of Pt(IV) was depicted at ca xAB = 0.8. A drop was also observed in the ionicity of the extracting phase (IL + BA) at a similar composition. The variation of the distribution coefficient is ascribed to changes in the interactions in the mixtures, which in turn could induce changes in the extraction mechanism.
