Iridium(IV) extraction with petroleum sulfoxides (PSO) from hydrochloric acid solutions is studied. Optimum conditions of extraction are chosen. It is shown that in the investigated extraction systems for a phase contact time of 30 min, iridium(IV) is extracted by the ion-associative mechanism. Electronic, 1H NMR, and IR-spectroscopy, and elemental analysis are used to establish the structure of the extracted compound.
