Abstract  

The concept of `adjunct' operation of two lattices with respect to a pair of elements is introduced. A structure theorem namely, `A finite lattice is dismantlable if and only if it is an adjunct of chains' is obtained. Further it is established that for any adjunct representation of a dismantlable lattice the number of chains as well as the number of times a pair of elements occurs remains the same. If a dismantlable lattice L has n elements and n+k edges then it is proved that the number of irreducible elements of L lies between n-2k-2 and n-2. These results are used to enumerate the class of lattices with exactly two reducible elements, the class of lattices with n elements and upto n+1 edges, and their subclasses of distributive lattices and modular lattices.

Abstract  

Extraction studies have been carried out to explore the feasibility of separation of Pu(IV) from phosphate containing analytical wastes generated in the laboratory. Distribution data on the extraction of Pu(IV) from DBDECMP (di-butyl, N,N-diethylcarbamoyl methyl phosphonate) in xylene from an aqueous nitric acid and its mixture with sulfuric as well as with sulfuric and phosphoric acids were obtained. Based on the data obtained, the conditions for the recovery of plutonium from such waste solutions are suggested.

Abstract  

A method for the recovery and purification of233U from phosphate containing analytical waste is developed. Extraction studies with DBDECMP (Di-butyl, N, N-diethylcarbamoyl-methyl phosphonate) in xylene were carried out to explore the feasibility of separation and purification of233U from such wastes. Based on the data obtained, optimum conditions for the recovery of233U are suggested.

Abstract  

Recovery of americium from nitric acid solutions was studied by co-precipitation as hydroxide with various ions like calcium, ferric, nickel using sodium hydroxide and ammonium hydroxide. Studies were also carried out to recover americium using lanthanum fluoride and bismuth phosphate co-precipitation. All the methods are able to co-precipitate Am quantitatively. However, co-precipitation of Am with optimum concentration iron using ammonia is found to be better from nitric acid solutions containing large concentrations of calcium ions. Approximately 2 g of Am was recovered from 150 litres of solution batch wise using iron.
