A method for the selective extraction of cerium (IV) on tri-n-butyl phosphate and thenoyltrifluoroacetone loaded foams is described. Parameters affecting the extraction of the metal ion, such as pH, reagent concentration and equilibration time have been investigated. Effects of ten diverse cations have also been studied. The method can be applied to preconcentrate and determine cerium in glasses.
