Traditionally, the removal of actinides from acidic solutions in the nuclear industry, has focused on the use of molecular solvents such as dodecane or odorless kerosene as extracting phases. The recent surge in the study of Ionic Liquids as alternative solvent systems has led to their investigation in many nuclear-related applications. Ionic Liquids can provide comparable or superior results in terms of their ability to be a suitable extracting phase from acid media as well as introduce unique coordination environments not observed in many molecular solvents.
