Separation of Ac from Pu. a Extraction yield of Ac3+ (stars) and Pu4+ (triangles) by 0.5 M HDEHP as a function of pH, in the presence of DTPA (dotted lines) or 343HOPO (solid lines). A logarithmic scale is used due to the low extraction yields of Pu4+. b Corresponding separation factors. Aqueous phase: 40 mM of chelator in sodium lactate/sodium nitrate buffer (I = 2 M). Vorg/Vaq = 1. T = 25 °C. LoD = Limit of detection. Data points with arrows are lower limits
