Asked by asikmostafamondal8 | 2nd May, 2021, 09:08: AM

Expert Answer:

Separation of actinoids is difficult because-
 
(1)The actinoids are radioactive elements having relatively short half-lives.
(2) Due tio actinoid contraction, atomic radii of these elements are very small. Hence, their chemical properties are very similar.
