Abstract: The chromatographic behaviour of 24 metallic ions on silica gel layers impregnated by
TBP was investigated using aqueous solutions of the organic complex-forming agents
(lactic acid, tartaric acid, citric acid, glycine, IDA, NTA, EDTA) as mobile phases. The
tested agents were in the mobile phase either at a constant pH at graduated concentrations or in a constant concentration at different pH values. The RF values of the metallic
ions are represented graphically as a function of the logarithm of concentration of the
complex-forming agent or of the pH value.
The extraction principle is discussed and the proposed extraction mechanism is
qualitatively confirmed by the linearity of the function RM = f(log[HX]) and on the basis
of the sign of the slope of the obtained straight line.
In conclusion the possibilities of an analytical application of the investigated systems
are critically evaluated and examples of separation are presented.
