Production Test 231-10 Supplement B process evaluation-production of concentrated plutonium nitrate solution in Building 231: Transfer to and processing in Building 234-5. Final report

Description: All of the 231 Building final product was prepared for off-site shipment prior to the startup of the 234-5 Building. The evaporator (S-1) effluent, a solution approximately 10 molar in nitric acid with plutonium concentration of 275 grams/liter, was dried within the shipping container (sample can) to a solid cake. The purpose of this drying operation was to minimize personnel contamination and/or loss of product during shipment. The dried cake was redissolved in water before further purification steps could be performed. The procedures for testing the purification of AT solution as recommended by the development group (6) were presented in Production Test 231-10 Supplement B. Production Test 231-10 Supplement B was initiated to establish the procedures for the precipitation of Plutonium (III) Oxalate in Plant equipment from AT solutions. The current report is written to provide a history of: Work done and data collected during the test, and Conclusions and Recommendations obtained from studies of the data.

Production Test 234-5 plant process evaluation precipitation of plutonium IV oxalate

Description: The object of the work described in this report was to adapt the laboratory procedures for precipitating and hydrofluorinating plutonium (IV) oxalate to plant equipment on 160 and 350 gram scale. This adaptation was done by making minor process changes in concentration, digestion time, rate of chemical addition, etc.

Evidence for Subshell at Z = 96

Description: The evidence is decisive that major nuclear shells are completed at 82 protons and 126 neutrons (both represented by the nuclide Pb{sup 208}) and these, along with major shells at 82 neutrons and certain lower nucleon numbers (N or Z = 20, 28, 50), are well explained by the strong spin orbit coupling model of Mayer and Haxel, Jensen, and Suess. This model suggests the filling of quantum states at certain intermediate points, and there is an accumulating amount of evidence that such 'sub shells' are also discernible, for example, at Z = 58 and Z = 64. The evidence from alpha radioactivity, both (1) the effect of the nuclear radius shrinkage on the relationship between energy and half-life and (2) the discontinuities in the plots of energy vs. mass number at constant Z, gives a striking indication of the closing of major shells at Z = 82 and N = 126. Application of these sensitive criteria as tests for the much smaller 'subshell' effects in the regions Z > 82 and N > 126 leads to some evidence for such a subshell at Z = 96 (curium).

Elastic Scattering of 190 MEV Deuterons by Protons

Description: The elastic differential scattering cross section of 190 MeV deuterons by protons has been measured from 15 degrees to 170 degrees in the center of mass system. The cross sections were obtained by subtracting the carbon counts from those received with a polyethylene target. Part I presents a description of the experiments. Results are shown in Table IV and Fig. 3. Part II compares these results with those expected from theory by making use of a method developed by Chew. A summary of this comparison is given in Table VII.

Description: The relative stopping powers for 300 Mev protons of H, Li, Be, C, Al, Fe, Cu, Ag, Sn, W, Pb, and U have been measured. The results are shown in Table I. The energy spent per ion-pair production in the gases H{sub 2}, He, N{sub 2}, O{sub 2}, and A at 340 Mev proton energy has also been measured. The results are shown in Table II.

Carbon Dioxide Fixation by Green Plants

Description: Since the end of the war when the long-lived isotope of carbon, C{sup 14} became available a new tool has been applied in the study of photosynthesis. Because of the interest evoked by the tracer method, research in all areas of photosynthesis has expanded. There have been reviews on various aspects of photosynthesis such as the primary photochemical reaction, quantum efficiency products, and comparative biochemistry, many discussions of which were included in the monograph of The American Society of Plant Physiologists, ''Photosynthesis in Plants''.

Purity data on Redox start-up material through the 231 and 234-5 Buildings

Description: Redox effluent for production was first processed in the 231 Building on February 4, 1952. Samples of process streams were taken after each purification step to evaluate the adequacy of purification processes in,the 231 and 234-5 Buildings and to provide close control of this material. Data regarding pile residence histories, radiation surveys of ``Sample Cans``, reduction yields, C/Q values, and product purity after purification steps were accumulated and are presented in this report to establish preliminary data which may be used to evaluate future process changes.

Feasibility survey: Krypton removal at Hanford

Description: Fission-production of krypton-85 in natural uranium piles is substantial and in direct proportion to plutonium production. The known chemical and nuclear properties of krypton are such as to permit its determination in air samples taken at considerable distance from its force and to allow correlation of such measurements with plutonium production.

Ignition delays of alkyl thiophosphites with white and red fuming nitric acids within temperature range 80 to -105 F

Description: Ignition delays of alkyl thiophosphites were obtained in a modified open-cup apparatus and a small-scale rocket engine apparatus. At -40 F, mixed alkyl thiophosphites gave short delays with white fuming nitric acid containing 2 percent water and red fuming nitric acids of widely varying compositions. At -40 F and higher, triethyl trithiophosphite blended with as much as 40 percent n-heptane gave satisfactory self-igniting properties at temperatures as low as -76 F.
