Catalysis of the exchange reaction between TBP and diphenyl carbazone, as ligands bound to uranyl, as well as catalysis of exchange between bound and free TBP was studied in a number of solvents. Catalysts were alcohols and water. A mechanism for the catalytic action is proposed and rate constants are reported. The implication of the results to the mechanism of uranium transfer through solvent membranes is discussed.
