Hydrolysis of Late-Washed, Irradiated Tetraphenylborate
Slurry Simulants I: Phenylboric Acid Hydrolysis Kinetics (U)
The attached report details the kinetics of phenylboric acid (PBA) reactions at 90 *C during
precipitate hydrolysis processing of late-washed, irradiated tetraphenylborate slurry simulants.
Hydrolysis rate constants and initial phenylboric acid concentrations are reported with 95%
confidence limits. Projected rates of benzene generation from residual phenylboric acid present
in the precipitate reactor immediately after the precipitate transfer is stopped are also reported.
The study covers a wide range of feed properties, including gamma irradiation doses of from 190
to 510 Mrads, mercury concentrations of 0 and 3150 mg/L, nitrite concentrations of from <14 to
> 900 mg/L, and layup irradiation doses of 0 and 46 Mrads. Hydrolysis operating conditions
covered a range of from 0.2 to 0.36 M acidity, copper catalyst concentrations of from 400 to
1200 ppm, and precipitate feedrates of 32 - 51 gpm (scaled to a 3600 gallon batch). The copper
and acidity ranges extend considerably beyond the recommended process operating parameters
(0.25 0.05 M acidity and 950 100 ppm copper) for the DWPF Salt Processing Cell.
