Abstract  

Extraction of microamounts of europium and americium by a phenyltrifluoromethyl sulfone (FS 13) solution of hydrogen dicarbollylcobaltate (H+B) in the presence of N,N′-diethyl-N,N′-diphenyl-2,6-dipicolinamide (EtPhDPA, L) has been investigated. The equilibrium data have been explained assuming that the species HL+, HL2 +, ML2 3+, ML3 3+ and ML4 3+ (M3+ = Eu3+, Am3+) are extracted into the organic phase. The values of extraction and stability constants of the cationic complexes in FS 13 saturated with water have been determined. It was found that the stability constants of the corresponding complexes EuL n 3+ and AmL n 3+, where n = 2, 3, 4 and L is EtPhDPA, in water-saturated FS 13 are comparable.

Abstract  

Extraction of microamounts of europium and americium by a nitrobenzene solution of hydrogen dicarbollylcobaltate (H+B) in the presence of N,N,N′,N′-tetraethyl-2,6-dipicolinamide (TEtDPA, L) has been investigated. The equilibrium data have been explained assuming that the cations HL+, HL2 3+, ML2 3+ and ML3 3+ (M3+ = Eu3+, Am3+) are extracted into the organic phase. The values of extraction and stability constants of the species in nitrobenzene saturated with water have been determined. It has been found that the stability constants of the corresponding complexes EuL n,org 3+ and AmL n,org 3+, where n = 2, 3 and L is TEtDPA, in the mentioned medium are comparable.

Abstract  

The concentration of molybdenum(VI) in dissolved spent nuclear fuel is comparable with the concentrations of Tc, and the minor actinides (Np, Am). Therefore it is of great interest to understand its behavior under conditions imposed by separation processes. The simultaneous extraction ability of ortho, meta, and para isomers of N,N′-diethyl-N,N′-ditolyl-dipicolinamide (EtTDPA) for molybdenum and technetium were investigated in a large range of nitric and hydrochloric acid conditions. Molybdenum shows no increase in extraction at higher concentrations of nitric acid giving a solvate number n=0 with all isomers of EtTDPA, while Mo shows great extractability from HCl. Technetium distribution ratios decrease with increasing concentrations of nitrate showing indication of ion exchange occurring between TcO4 and NO3 anions. Et(m)TDPA and Et(p)TDPA show the greatest extractability, with 60% of the total technetium extracted into the organic phase at 1M HNO3.

Summary  

The radiation stability of UNEX stripping solutions containing water, methylamine carbonate, nitrilotriacetic acid, and metal salts was experimentally studied. The decomposition of the methylamine carbonate and nitrilotriacetic acid under gamma irradiation (dose: 0.29 kGy) is lower than 0.5 molecules per 100 eV or about 7.2E-04% and 0.047%, respectively. The decomposition products do not adversely affect the UNEX process up to a 3 MGy absorbed dose. The stripping solutions can be regenerated and reused.

Summary  

Scientists at the Idaho National Laboratory (INL) and Khlopin Radium Institute (KRI) collaboratively developed and validated the concept of a Universal Extraction (UNEX) process for simultaneously removing the major radionuclides (Cs, Sr, actinides, and lanthanides) from acidic radioactive waste in a single solvent extraction process. The process chemistry is unique and complicated, since the extractants, chlorinated cobalt dicarbollide (CCD), polyethylene glycol (PEG), and diphenyl-N,N-di-n-butylcarbamoylmethylphosphine oxide (Ph2CMPO), operatesynergistically to extract the major radionuclides.A combination of classical chemistry techniques, infrared (IR) spectroscopy, and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy were utilized to identify and explain the structures formed in the organic phase with protons or metal ions. Model systems, CCD-PEG and CCD-bidentate organophosphorus compounds were studied and possible structures of complexes, existing in the organic phase, are proposed and properties of the UNEX extractant are discussed.
