Summary: This work describes the liquid-liquid extraction of uranium (U) from 3 mole L-1 nitric acid media by N, N-di(2-ethyl hexyl) hexanamide (DOHA) in dodecane and subsequent determination of uranium using arsenazo III as a chromogenic reagent.
Regarding the peel of the SoLi, its profile was controlled by high levels of linalyl acetate, hexyl acetate, and [alpha]-terpinene, while that of SwLi was related to the contents of hexyl acetate and [alpha]-terpinene; finally, SwLe peel had contents of [alpha]-terpinene, [alpha]-pinene, citronellal, and [alpha]-terpiolene, plus high green notes
