Exploiting outer-sphere interactions to enhance metal recovery by solvent extraction

Author affiliations

Abstract

Interactions, particularly hydrogen bonds, between ligands in the outer coordination spheres of metal complexes have a major effect on their stabilities in the hydrocarbon solvents used in commercial solvent extraction and it is now possible to use these interactions to tune the strength and selectivity of extractants.
