The lecture is based and envolves Separation Methods in Radiochemistry I. Additional aspects of extraction separation methods such as classification and description of the ion-pair formation extraction systéme, extraction with mixtures of agents, and accesories and devices used in solvent extraction. Separations with ion-exchange resins including accesories and high performance liquid chromatography are discussed in more details. Finally, the lecture includes membrane separation processes, thermochromatography, distillation and electrochemical methods.

Study Objective:

Students will get knowledge of principles and function of the less common in radiochemistry used separation methods and deeper knowledge of the selected methods (extraction and chromatographic methods). Their competencies to chaose proper separation method and procedure according to chemical and technical conditions will be extended.
