AbstractFundamental solvent extraction studies on the separation of the lanthanides were carried out by investigating both the hydroxamic acid and phosphinic acid reagent families. In general, the lanthanides were found to extract as self-adducts. It was found that the separation of the individual lanthanides with both of these reagent families was adversely affected by steric hindrance.
