Effects of Contaminants on Separations

WP2 Effects of Contaminants on Separations – led by Laurence HarwoodUniversity of Reading

The aim of this work package is to investigate the effects of contaminants on speciation specifically targeting the GANEX AND I-SANEX process. Projects within this theme include:

  • Design and Synthesis of soluble and immobilized ligands for speciation studies
  • Determining the speciation and the effect of contaminants on elemental separations (Ln/Ac) using the BTPhen family of ligands
  • Development of new tools to analyse speciation
