Notes Pertaining to Recuplex Product Evaporation

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A red-brown liquid formed during the evaporation of simulated Recuplex product solutions containing plutonium, nitric acid, carbon tetrachloride, and tributyl phosphate (TBP). The liquid is soluble in carbon tetrachloride. Concentration of solutions containing a TBP to plutonyl nitrate weight ratio of 0.15 or greater to a pot temperature of 150 deg C caused reactions which produced enough heat to bring the pot contents to a red heat with copious evolution of gases. Evaporation path curves and boiling point data were obtained from batch evaporations with minimum reflux and are presented. Polymeric plutonium(IV) was formed upon concentrating plutonium nitrate solutions of ... continued below

Evaporation path curves and boiling point data were obtained from batch evaporations with minimum reflux and are presented. Polymeric plutonium(IV) was formed upon concentrating plutonium nitrate solutions of low nitric acid content. The region of polymer formation was defined and is presented. (auth)
