Solubilities of Selected Metals in Mercury: Hermex Process

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The solubilities of uraninm, thorium, gadelinium, sama rinm, and neodymium in mereury were determined from room temperatare to 356 deg C. Equations of the form log of solubility (wt.%) = a + b/T were developed for these metals. Integral heats of solution were calculated for each. The solubilities of ruthenium, palladium, zirconium, and molybdenum in mercury in the presence of excess uranium were determined; the low solubility of zirconium and molybdenum gave solutions with a concentration below the limit of detection in the analytical method used. Their values are reported as an upper solubility limit. Uranium solubility in a 0.1 ... continued below

Their values are reported as an upper solubility limit. Uranium solubility in a 0.1 wt.% magnesium amAlgam was approximately 1.2 to 1.5 times greater than in mercury alone. When uranium and thorium were present in the same mercury solution, their solubilities were mutually depressed. (auth)
