  • PROCESS FOR THE SEPARATION AND PURIFICATION OF

    Hafnium and zirconium separation by ion exchange and desorption by 0.025M acetic acid and 1M perchloric or nitric acid is described. The influence of the mineral acid on the V/sub max/ position and separation efficiency is analyzed. The influence is related to an imposed second process, complex formation with the mineral acids.

  • Zirconium and hafnium: Old minerals finding new prominence ...

    Jan 30, 2019· Hafnium is chemically similar to zirconium and separating the two elements is difficult. Because of this, most commercial hafnium is a by-product of zirconium refining. Zircon is the primary source of all hafnium, containing it at a ratio of about 50 to 1.

    The atomic radii of zirconium (Zr) and hafnium (Hf) as well as the radii of the ions (Zr +4 and Hf +4) are almost identical. This explains, in part, the fact that the chemistry of these two elements is more similar than any other elemental pair.
