CYANEX® 600 Extractant

CYANEX® 600 allows mining companies to extract valuable molybdenum from low concentration acidic streams regardless of where in the process such a stream exists.  Molybdenum exists at varying levels in most copper solvent extraction leach streams. By extracting this metal from the copper solvent extraction process, mining companies can gain an additional source of revenue from their existing operations. Molybdenum is highly valued for use in alloys, particularly in special high-strength, pressure, temperature or corrosion resistant applications. Cytec's CYANEX 600 is highly selective and stable at low pH, allowing extraction, purification and concentration of molybdenum from low concentration sources.
