What is it about?

Aqueous biphasic separation (ABS) is a green technique avoiding organic solvents. Here two accelerator produced radioisotopes, 97-Ru and 95,96Tc were separated from the bulk applying ABS. Various aspects of ABS have been examined.

Why is it important?

Any chemistry that shows alternative to organic solvent is important.


97Ru is a potential candidate radionuclide in nuclear medicine, therefore its separation is important. Here both the separating reagents, PEG and long chain fatty acids are green. Therefore to successfully develop a nice green method is a matter of pride.
