|Abstract||Ytterbium was separated from a mixture of heavy lanthanons by electrolysis into mercury from an aqueous lithium citrate electrolyte at pH 6. Enrichment of the Yb/sub 2/O/sub 3/ was from 31% to>99.9% purity and the yield was quantitative. A 50-50 mixture of ytterbium and radioactively tagged thulium was used to study the effect of pH on electrolysis rates and on the purity of electrolyzed ytterbium. A strong pH dependence was found with the rate of electrolysis of ytterbium being 40-fold slower at pH 11 than at pH 6. The average purity of ytterbium electrolyzed from the 50-50 mixture of Yb-Tm was 99.98% at pH 6 and 99.96% at pH 8. A foreign impurity effect was found (believed to be platinum contamination) which affected the rate of electrolysis of thulium, and for one experiment the rate for ytterbium was also affected. Since the effect was different for thulium and ytterbium the purity of the electrolyzed ytterbium was variant. (auth)|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
