Separation of Zirconium and Hafnium: A Review | …

Abstract. Zirconium is an ideal material for nuclear reactors due to its low absorption cross-section for thermal neutrons, whereas the typically contained hafnium with strong neutron-absorption is very harmful for zirconium. This paper provides an overview of the processes for separating hafnium from zirconium.

Zirconium-hafnium – bound beyond nature

The main ore mineral for both of these corrosion- and heat-resistant metals is zircon, which typically contains about 50 times more zirconium than hafnium. Most zircon is recovered from heavy mineral sands, which are marine placer deposits that often contain zircon, titanium, rare earth elements, gold, garnets, gemstones and chromite.

Zirconium

Fifteen other isotopes are known to exist. Zircon, ZrSiO 4, the principal ore, is pure ZrO 2 in crystalline form having a hafnium content of about 1%. Zirconium also occurs in some 30 other recognized mineral species. Zirconium is produced commercially by reduction of chloride with magnesium (the Kroll Process), and by other methods.

The principal source of zirconium and hafnium is zircon, though a minor source is baddeleyite, mined only in Brazil. Zircon is an accessory mineral in igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary rocks, but rarely occurs in hardrock in minable quantities. The principal sources of zircon are therefore alluvial deposits, which are mined in many countries of five continents.
