1 Introduction Tributyl phosphate (TBP) is commonly used solvent in nuclear fuel reprocessing of nuclear industry. The extraction and purification of uranium, plutonium, thorium and other rare earth elements in PUREX process involves the extraction of solute molecule from aqueous nitric acid solution using 30 % TBP in paraffinic diluent. During this process traces amount of TBP is dissolved in the aqueous nitric acid phase due to solubility of TBP. The presence of TBP even in traces in the aqueous phase is undesirable, as it can lead to violent reactions. This

The present work investigates the role of increase in the basicity of organophosphorus extractant (dialkylalkyl phosphonates) on the uptake of actinides and fission products vis-à-vis tributyl phosphate (TBP), currently employed as a universal extractant. Two dialkylalkyl phosphonates viz. dibutylpropyl phosphonate (DBPrP) and dibutylpentyl phosphonate (DBPeP) were synthesized, characterized and evaluated for their solvent extraction behavior towards U(VI), Th(IV), Eu(III) and Tc(VII) in nitric acid medium ranging from 0.01–6 M. It was observed that increasing the basicity of the phosphoryl oxygen enhanced the uptake of the actinides and the distribution coefficient values were significantly larger as compared to TBP. The limiting organic concentration (LOC) value was estimated for Th(IV) for these extractants and compared with the TBP system. The separation factors of actinides with phosphonates over Tc(VII) are distinctly better than that with TBP.
