The extraction and reduction behavior of Mo and W, lighter homologs of Sg, was studied in continuous on-line experiments at the JAEA tandem accelerator to develop a new chemistry assembly consisting of a membrane degasser (MDG), a flow electrolytic column (FEC), and the continuous liquid–liquid extraction apparatus (SISAK). Extraction yields of Mo and W from 0.1 M HCl/0.9 M LiCl into 4-isopropyltropolone (hinokitiol, HT) in toluene were investigated. In the reduction experiment, Mo(VI) was successfully reduced to a lower oxidation state while W(VI) showed no reduction under the given conditions.
