The possibility of mutual separation of V and W oxoanions from aqueous solution was investigated by elecro-reduction of V(V) to V(IV) in a flow-type electrolyzer combined with column sorption on a selective resin having 1-deoxy-1-(methylamino)-glucitol functional groups. At pH 3, V(V) oxoanion ([image omitted]) was reduced to V(IV) cation, which passed into the effluent, whereas W, existing as [image omitted], was quantitatively retained by the resin. In this way, complete separation of V and W was achived. By elution with 1 M HCl, the V(IV) in a form of VO2+ was eluted. Tunsgten was eluted quantitatively with 1 M NaOH. A co-removal and co-elution of V with W was observed, which is supposed to be due to V(IV)/W heteropolyanion formation during the electro-reduction.
