Direct monitoring of speciation for minor actinide separations

Abstract:

One of the major challenges in the development of future generations of nuclear reprocessing procedures is the separation of the minor actinides from the chemically similar trivalent lanthanide ions.

In this thesis, the potential of two purely N-donor ligands for minor actinide separations is evaluated and behaviour in aqueous and extraction conditions investigated. Of two chosen ligands, 12N4Py4 and 9N3Py3, only the larger 12N4Py4 was found to be able to complex lanthanide ion...
