A method has been proposed for the extraction of bismuth(III) at microgram level from bromide media using mesityl oxide as an extractant. The bismuth–bromo complex formed in the concentration range of 0.05–0.3 mol dm−3 hydrobromic acid showed quantitative extraction into mesityl oxide. Various experimental conditions such as acid concentration, mesityl oxide concentration, period of equilibration, stripping agents, and diverse ions have been studied. Bismuth ion after stripping is determined by thiourea spectrophotometrically. The method is applicable to the analysis of pharmaceutical samples, alloy samples, and synthetic mixtures.
