Separation of Iron and Tuballoy With Phthallic Acid

Description: Introduction: This report embodies the results of an investigation as to the possibility of removing the bulk of the iron from gunk solutions of various concentrations by precipitation of the iron with phthallic acid and subsequent precipitation of tuballoy. The method consists of dissolving the phthallic acid in the gunk solution and then adding NH₃ to a suitable pH, precipitating the iron, and leaving the tuballoy in solution.

Recovery of Uranium From Contaminated Precipitron Oil

Description: Abstract: The distillation and residue extraction recovery procedures developed for the recovery of uranium from Kinney and diffusion pump oil, were applied to contaminated precipitron oil. The effectiveness and advisability of using the method, in whole or in part, is discussed, and various recommendations for processing this particular type of oil are presented. Additional contaminating substances present in this type of oil added to the complexity of the problem but a satisfactory recovery p… more

Hydrogen Peroxide Analysis and Decomposition in Chromate Solutions

Description: Abstract: "A novel procedure employing ion exchange resins was developed to separate chromate ions from hydrogen peroxide, permitting, permitting the subsequent analysis of peroxide to determine its decomposition in sodium chromate solutions. At high pH's, peroxide was absorbed anionically on the ion exchange resins along with chromate. By selecting a resin which would be effective at nearly neutral conditions, chromate was satisfactorily separated from peroxide. It was found that the rate of p… more

Development and Properties of Uranium Monocarbide Cermets : Final Report

Description: Abstract: "Uranium monocarbide-Zircaloy II alloy cermets were developed and tested for chemical and physical properties. It was determined that pure uranium monocarbide can be prepared by vacuum are melting techniques. Following melting, the combination, hot pressing, and corrosion behavior of dense monocarbide has been studied. The preparation of uranium monocarbide-Zircaloy II cermet bodies was investigated by means of hot pressing, cold pressing and sintering, warm pressing, extrusion, and h… more

Coulometric Titration Plutonium

Description: Abstract:"A method is described for the electroreduction of plutonium to the +3 valence state in a nitric acid-sulfamic acid solution. Exploratory experiments in the search for a coulometric titration of Pu(III) using electrolytically generated ceric ion are also described. The results strongly indicate that a convenient procedure can be devised. Suggestions for future work are presented."

Analytical studies of the estimation of beryllium oxide in beryllium metal

Description: From abstract: The estimation of beryllium oxide in beryllium metal depending on the differential solubilities of the two material in dilute hydrochloric acid is presented. The results compare favorably with the present beryllium chloride volatilization procedure. Alternate methods are described, and the limitations and possible errors are discussed.

Safety Analysis of the Storage and Handling of the SRE Fuel

Description: "The most hasardous conditions relating to the storage and handling of the SRE fuel are those in which water and fuel form a possible critical assembly. Therefore, this memorandum is primarily devoted to an analysis of the conditions necessary for a critical mixture of water and SRE fuel. Certain special geometries are then analyzed for their safeness."

The Proton-Proton Triple Scattering Parameters R and A at 213 Mev

Description: "As a part of a program to determine the p-p scattering matrix at 213 Mev, the triple scattering parameters R and A were measured at 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80. and 90 deg in the center-of-msss system. The results are compared with a phase shift analysis by MacGregor and Moravcsik and with the predictions of the boundary condition model of Saylor, Bryan and Marshak."

Preliminary Studies for the Separation of HD from H2 by Rectified Absorption

Description: The feasibility of rectified absorption for the recovery and purification of HD from H2 streams has been investigated. The absorbent considered was liquid nitrogen at 78 (degrees) K. The process appears to present no major engineering or operation problems. Cost calculations indicate that the process may be economically competitive with other processes. Process design was based on an estimated separation factor of 1.25 between H2 and HD in this system. Experimental work has been undertaken… more

Effects of Total Body Z Irradiation of Rats. Part I, Lethal Action of Single, Paired, and Periodic Doses

Description: Abstract: Exposure of Sprague Dawley white rats to single doses of 900 kvp X radiation demonstrated a medium lethal dose of 600 r which was not markedly dependent upon sex, weight, or, in the case of females, stage of the estrous cycle at the time of irradiation. Deaths within 30 days were most frequent between the fourth and eighth, and between the tenth and fifteenth post- irradiation days, indicating the existence of at least two processes leading to death in the "acute" period.
