The extraction process of ternary ion-association complexes of molybdenum (VI) with some polyphenols (4-nitrocatechol, 2,3-dihydroxy naphthalene) and thiazolyl blue has been investigated by using an extraction-spectrophotometric method. The optimum conditions for their quantitative preparation in aqueous medium and subsequent extraction into an organic solvent have been found. The extraction, distribution and association constants, and the recovery factors have been calculated. The composition of the complexes has been determined. A precise, sensitive and simple extraction-spectrophotometric method for determination of molybdenum in products from ferrous metallurgy has been developed.
