Liquid-liquid extraction is a commonly used method in extraction of metals from hydrometallurgical process solutions. Studies of hydrometallurgical processes require determination of distribution ratios which involves accurate determination of the concentration of metals of interest, preferably in both aqueous- and organic phases. The high concentration of dissolved material often found in hydrometallurgical process solutions challenges most quantitative detection methods. In the present work, liquid scintillation spectroscopy, high resolution gamma spectroscopy and inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry were used. The advantages and shortcomings of the techniques for determination of distribution ratios will be discussed.
