Among these new PAQs, the polymer prepared from phenyl-p-benzoquinone and 2-butyl-2-ethyl-1,5-pentanediamine had demonstrated good solubility in common organic solvents such as acetone, methylene chloride, methanol, tetrahydrofuran, methyl isobutyl ketone, dimethylsulfoxide, and dimethylformamide.
However, whereas the organic solvent methyl isobutyl ketone readily extracts tantalum from solution, it fails to pull out hahnium.
