Abstract:The research presented in this thesis deals with the synthesis and evaluation of new potential
ligands for the complexation of actinide and lanthanide ions either for their extraction from
bulk radioactive waste or their stripping from an extracted organic phase for final processing
of the waste. In particular, the aim of the work described here is the development of new
ligands with improved separation and extraction efficiency. Separation of actinides (An) and
lanthanides (Ln) is a challenging issue in the field of nuclear waste management. The main
objective in this work is to achieve separations by rather simple, completely incinerable, and
easily accessible ligands, for different processes under development in the nuclear waste
industry, and to develop environmentally friendly extraction systems, that might replace the
conventional organic solvent system.
