The fluorinated carbonate BK-1 solvent was studied as a diluent in extraction systems with different extracting agents – CMPO, THDGA, CyMe4-BTBP, and CyMe4-BTPhen, which are the most promising molecules for separation of minor actinides and lanthanides. Dependence of the extraction properties of the system on the concentrations of HNO3 or extracting compound, kinetics of trivalent metal extraction and extraction of the ions by neat diluent (without the addition of extracting agent) were investigated. Based on the obtained results, BK-1 is a promising candidate diluent for f-block metal separation.
