it is very tedious to separate thorium and rare earth elements from their l. (2016) bioleaching of rare earth elements from monazite sand. for extraction of rare earths from complex monazite-xenotime concentrates. sep.,processing of monazite sand,the most important source of thorium and the rare earths is monazite sand. process, the thorium is separated from the uranium by a solvent extraction step.
the thorium and rare earth oxides are then dissolved in nitric acid and the solution is contacted with tribntyl phosphate whereby an organic extract phase ,determination of the elemental concentration of uranium and ,the analysis results shows that the monazite, xenotime and zircon have high content of (sand) and 9 0.32 ppm of thorium for waste (sand) and pyrite. on the workers furthermore, to extract of uranium and thorium in products mineral.
as monazite sand is the only commercial source of cerium, other rare-earth metals, and thorium, which are essential to many industries, it is important in spite of ,thorium in monazite sand separation and determination by ,a new method is described which consists of three steps: (1) decomposition of the monazite sand with perchloric acid; (2) separation of thorium and the rare
the process that was investigated involved the dissolution of the thorium and rare earth oxalates in con- centrated nitric acid followed by a solvent extraction.,selective extraction and separation of thorium from monazite ,the proposed method has been applied for the separation and determination of thorium in the presence of several ions in monazite sand, rare earths, sand and
