The partition of 1-phenyl-3-methyl-4-benzoylpyrazolone-5 (HA) between aqueous solutions of HClO4 and NaClO4, ionic strength 0.1, and Freon 113 or its 2 : 1 mixture with benzene was studied. The logarithms of the HA distribution constants are 2.84 ± 0.10 and 3.39 ± 0.15 for the two organic phases, respectively. The extraction curves of cerium(III) and europium(III) revealed that in dependence on the pH of the aqueous phase, the metals are transferred into the organic phase in the form of the MA3 complexes (M = Ce, Eu). The stability constants of the complexes MAn in the aqueous phase were determined along with their distribution and extraction constants. For cobalt, zinc, and hafnium, a part of the extraction curves could only be studied, only the extraction constants were therefore determined. The sparing solubility of HA in Freon 113 can be circumvented by using a Freon-benzene mixture 2 : 1, which is still practically incombustible.
