Abstract

We report the synthesis and evaluation of a novel hydrophilic 6,6’-bis(1,2,4-triazin-3-yl)-2,2’-bipyridine (BTBP) ligand containing carboxylate groups as a selective aqueous complexing agent for the minor actinides over lanthanides. The novel ligand is able to complex and separate Am(III) from Eu(III) in alkaline solutions selectively.
