Mechanisms and Kinetics of Organic Aging and Characterization of Intermediates in High Level Waste

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The objective of this project is to characterize significant chemical degradation pathways of organic chemicals in stored high-level waste and waste treatment streams. Recognizing that experiments cannot reproduce every conceivable scenario, the project works to develop predictive computational models of these chemistries. The effort is closely coordinated with a Notre Dame Radiation Laboratory project (EMSP No. 73832, ''The NOx System in Nuclear Waste,'' D. Meisel, Principal Investigator) that focuses on radiolytically-induced degradation of organic complexants in waste simulants. Investigators combine experimental observations, electronic structure computations, and theoretical methods development to achieve this goal. The resulting models facilitate accurate evaluation of ... continued below

The resulting models facilitate accurate evaluation of hazardous conditions and support decision-making processes regarding safety, retrieval, treatment, and tank closure issues.
