Production test 234-4, production of plutonium (IV) fluoride by direct hydrofluorination of plutonium (III) oxalate. Final report

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A new method for the production of plutonium (IV) fluoride, which is used for the production of metallic plutonium, is described. The method bypasses the oxidation of plutonium(III) oxalate to plutonium(IV) oxide. A production test was executed with favorable yields; the decision to replace the prior method was recommended. This report is from the Hanford Works 234-5 building, March 30, 1951.
