Ion-exchange behavior of Re and Os as homolgs of Bh and Hs, respectively, has been studied in the sulfuric acid media. The distribution coefficients of ^183Re and ^185Os as well as of other radionuclides between Dowex-50 and H_2SO_4 solutions were determined as a function of the acid concentration. It was shown, that cation-exchange column may be used for the separation of Os, Re and W from elements of III group, whereas anion-exchange column for their concentration from diluted sulfuric acid solutions. The 0.05M H_2SO_4 was used for continuous on-line separation of short-lived Os isotopes produced in the nuclear reactions: ^nat.Dy(^20Ne, xn)Os. Radionuclides of Os, Re and W were strongly sorbed on anion-exchange column only.
