Ames National Laboratory is a government-owned, contractor-operated national laboratory of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), operated by and located on the campus of Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa.

For more than 70 years, the Ames National Laboratory has successfully partnered with Iowa State University, and is unique among the 17 DOE laboratories in that it is physically located on the campus of a major research university. Many of the scientists and administrators at the Laboratory also hold faculty positions at the University and the Laboratory has access to both undergraduate and graduate student talent.

Abstract

A single-pass method for the ion-exchange separations of binary mixtures of metals is described, and experimental applications are presented. The method consists of complexing each of the components in the mixture with a separate complexing agent at a pH sufficient to ensure maximum coordination of the metals. The complexing agents are chosen such that the metal complexes formed are of opposite charge. The mixture is then passed through an ion-exchange resin which absorbs one species completely, allowing the other to be collected in the effluent. An anion-or cation-exchange resin is used.
