tantalum niobium tantalite

Tantalum is extremely chemically similar to niobium; the two exist neither as free elements on earth nor independent from each other, present in minerals like tantalite, columbite, samarskite, microlite, wodginite, euxenite, fergusonite, and polycrase.

Addition of H 2 SO 4 improves the separation of niobium and tantalum. Extraction with 2-octanol is almost similar to extraction with 1-octanol. Two and three stages were sufficient for the extraction of Ta and Nb respectively.
