The interaction between UO22+ and ammonium-N, N-tetramethylenedithiocarbamate (ATMDTC) was investigated experimentally by means of UV-Vis spectrophotometry. Central Composite Design (CCD) was applied to optimisation of reaction with 54 runs in duplicate. This design type was also used to developed mathematical model equation. Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) indicates that the terms of the model are significant within the 95% confident interval. Remarkably initial solution pH, initial ATMDTC concentration, initial Cu2+ concentration and temperature have effect on the reaction. Formation constant (log K-f) was calculated as 2.917 by using Rank Annihilation Factor Analysis (RAFA).
