Abstract

This study focused on separation and recovery of scandium from chloride solution using the new synthesized ion exchange resin. The resin containing glycol amic acid groups shows the possibility to recover scandium from chloride aqueous solutions. At pH 1, the adsorption selectivity of scandium can be obtained among the others metals. The kinetic adsorption of scandium by the resin was found slowly, and contact time 24 hours was chosen as a suitable time in this study. The elution of scandium from the loaded resin could be completed with 2 M HCl solution at 80 oC. The close process will be established based on the optimum parameters which are obtained throughout this investigation, and that process can be applied in metal extraction processing for recovery of scandium and the other rare earth metals using the novel ion exchange resin.
