Abstract

An economic evaluation has been made of the silica gel adsorption process for the separation of hafnium and zirconium. It is estimated that hafnium-free zirconium can be prepared at a cost of $7.10 per pound in the form of ZrOCl-2·8H-2O. This salt is satisfactory for the preparation of ZrF-4 by the Ames wet process.
