Description

Adhesives. The effects obtained when diols and triols are used to cure Adiprene L-213 are discussed. Most of the formulations are very viscous and present difficulties in degassing operations. Ionium Project. Four plant samples having 1 ppm or more of Th/sup 2//sup 3//sup 0/ were analyzed for Th/sup 2//sup 3//sup 0/ in two different ways, one using HNO/sub 3/ digestion and the other using HClO/sub 4/ digestion. The difference between these two methods found for one sample is attributed to insolubility induced by calcining. Half Life of Radium-223. The decay of a purified Ra/sup 2//sup 2//sup 3/ sample was followed ... continued below

Description

Adhesives. The effects obtained when diols and triols are used to cure Adiprene L-213 are discussed. Most of the formulations are very viscous and present difficulties in degassing operations. Ionium Project. Four plant samples having 1 ppm or more of Th/sup 2//sup 3//sup 0/ were analyzed for Th/sup 2//sup 3//sup 0/ in two different ways, one using HNO/sub 3/ digestion and the other using HClO/sub 4/ digestion. The difference between these two methods found for one sample is attributed to insolubility induced by calcining. Half Life of Radium-223. The decay of a purified Ra/sup 2//sup 2//sup 3/ sample was followed by alpha counting for 109 days; the results indicate that a long-lived impurity may be the cause of the nonconvergence of the probable error in the resolution time range. Purification of a composite sample containing Ac/sup 2// sup 2//sup 7/ to give a source of Ra/sup 2//sup 2//sup 3/ is described. Determination of Coincidence Correction. The coincidence correction was determined for a proportional alpha counter with Pb/sup 2//sup 1//sup 1/, and the best resolution times and half lives are given. Plutonium Alloy Research. The density of liquid Ce was measured from 825 to 1000 deg C with the vacuum pycnometer method; the thermal coefficient of cubical expansion is found to be very small, 33 x 10/sup -//sup 6/ cm/sup 3// cm/sup 3// deg C, and the volume change of fusion is also estimated to be small, less than 0.5%. The viscosities of molten La and Pr were determined from their melting points up to 996 deg C. Qualitative tests were made to study the wetting properties of Pu alloys on Ta. Pure liquid Pu did not wet Ta surfaces, but a Fu--43 at.% Co alloy had improved wetting properties. Plutonium-bearing Glass Fibers. Leaching tests were made at room temperature on glass fibers containing 10 wt.% Pu oxide. Reaching in water, 0.1 N HCl, and 0.5 N HNO/sub 3/ for 2206, 2183, and 1363 hr, respectively, resulted in respective losses of 0.15, 0.24, and 0.65% of the Pu oxide from the fibers. Additional leaching data for glass fibers containing 15 wt.% Pu oxide indicate that the rate of dissolution of Fu oxide is not related to the concentration of the Pu oxide but to that of the alkali metal oxides in the glass. Preliminary results are presented for the tensile strengths of glass fibers containing 20 wt.% Pu oxide. (D.L.C.)
