Tantalum, niobium, and their oxides are important precursor materials, essential for high-temperature alloys and electronic devices. The primary hydrometallurgical extraction technique to extract tantalum and niobium from minerals involves hydrofluoric acid (HF) digestion of the concentrates, followed by solvent extraction as an oxide separation and purification step.
