Extraction chromatography was used to scarch optimum separation conditions of terbium. Stationary phase was 2-ethylhexyl-2-ethylhexyl phosphonic acid(HEH[EHP])levextrel (-100~+150 mesh), column size was ${\Phi}20{\times}530mm$ and kept constantly temperature at $50^{\circ}C$, adsorption flow rate of $0.2mL/cm^2{\cdot}min$, elution flow rate of $1.0mL/cm^2{\cdot}min$, column diameter to packing height of 1:15. But to search optimum separation conditions of terbium, it changed the eluent acidity, the loading weight of sample. the composition of sample. In conclusion, acidity was 0.6 N HCl, loading weight of sample was about 5% and composition of sample was $Gd_2O_3(20%)+Tb_4O_7(60%)+Dy_2O_3(20%)$. Moreover purity of separated terbium by ICP-AES analysis was 99.98% in yield of 99.99%.
