A new system for simultaneous electrodeposition of U, Np, Pu, Am and Cm has been developed. The system consists of (NH4)2C2O4–H2SO4–HCl. The effects on recovery of pH, current density, interfering ions and the amount of added HCl have been studied. The optimum condition for simultaneous electrodeposition of actinides has been recommended. Under the recommended condition recoveries of U, Np, Pu, Am and Cm have been obtained by using232U,237Np,241Am,242Pu and244Cm. The counting sources prepared are uniform, adherent and suitable for -spectrometry.
